Recently we received a request from a customer asking for a notebook with 12 months of monthly planning pages at the front of the book, and the rest of the pages blank for Bullet Journaling. We don’t currently offer a notebook like this, but we started brainstorming possibilities.
If we were to make a notebook with monthly planning pages, would you prefer the months to be dated so you don’t have to fill the dates in yourself, or undated so you can start the notebook any time?
An alternative is to slip a monthly planner into the pocket of the notebook. That way when the notebook fills up, you can move the monthly planner over to the new notebook easily. The pocket size Visoplan and Exaplan monthly planners are especially good options for this.
Another option is to cut the pages out of a Visoplan or Exaplan monthly planner and tape or glue those pages into the front pages of the notebook.
Something we don’t currently make but that I’ve been thinking about are monthly calendar booklets designed to fit the planners and notebooks, like the address/ notes booklets that come with some of the planners but as monthly planners instead. A slim monthly booklet could fit into the back pocket of a Habana notebook or into the cover pocket of a weekly planner. Is this something you might be interested in?
Another possibility is to offer PDF downloads of monthly pages to print and stick into your notebook. Is this an option you would like?
We would love to get your feedback on these ideas. Please leave a comment and let us know what you think!
