There are plenty of planner companies these days that allow some personalisation but only a few will let you build a truly custom planner. These are my favorites!
Agendio offers the most customisable planners. You choose from their base weekly spreads and from there can customise pretty much everything – line spacing, square or circle checkboxes, colors, font style, birthdays and recurring tasks pre-printed on the pages, choose a cover design, add text to the cover, choose from many add on pages, customise the add on pages etc.
I did an entire post on all of the features / ordering tutorial here.
Reviews of planners I’ve made with Agendio
- Agendio Review (custom, personalised weekly planner)
- Agendio Daily Planner
- Agendio Planners Haul (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Project Planner & Bullet Journals)
- Custom Agendio Vertical Weekly Planner Review
- Agendio custom dot grid notebook
Things you can customise:
- Daily, weekly or monthly planner
- Customise their base design to your liking
- Day of the week that the weekly spread starts
- Line spacing width
- Solid or dashed lines or blank spaces
- Checkboxes, or circles to check off tasks once completed
- Dates at a glance boxes on the pages
- Choose how many divisibles e.g. if you want your weekly spread to have a column with 2 mini lists, 3 mini lists, 4 mini lists etc. in the sidebar
- National holidays, birthdays and recurring tasks pre-printed on the monthly and or weekly spread
- You choose the configuration of the planner e.g. a 2 page weekly spread with 1 checklist, 1 notes page (i.e. 4 pages per week)
- Plus more options – there are too many to list!
The most expensive planner on this list. I’d only recommend if you live in the USA due to the limited countries they ship to (and expensive international shipping cost).
For my full review, including pros & cons list, see this post.
Some of the companies on this list will let you modify the weekly layout, this one doesn’t let you. However there are plenty of weekly spreads to choose from. There’s daily layout options too.
Things you can customise:
- Plenty of weekly layouts
- Day to a page options also available
- Choose a cover from their designs
- Add on pages and their location within the planner
Add on page options:
- Calendar – Annual overview, monthly calendars

- Standard – To do, spreadsheet (like a workflow chart / student attendance or grades tracker), staff (music lines), fillable list, dot, graph, lined, blank
The most affordable option on this list and customisable without being overwhelmed by all of the options. Shipping is free worldwide!

4. Plum Paper
One of my all time favorite planner companies!
While you can’t change the weekly layouts they do have plenty to choose from. I think Plum Paper are the most affordable customisable planners (and reasonably priced international shipping as well). There are plenty of other companies that let you build a planner such as Erin Condren and Limelife Planners, however I think Plum Paper has the most weekly layout and add on options for the best price.
- Choose add on categories not just extra notes pages entire sections of themed add ons e.g. cooking, blogging, fitness etc.
- Choose from plenty of cover options (in a variety of patterns)
- Free cover personalisation with your choice of text
- Choose from 3 page sizes – A4, 7 x 9″ (my favorite) or US letter size
- Cheap international shipping
- Paper that’s so smooth to write on and doesn’t bleed through (there is ghosting though)

5. May Designs
May Designs planners are very nice – the colors are great! The planner builder tool on their website is quick and easy to use, I just think it’s a bit pricey for what you get. However it’s one of the few sewn bound style customisable planners I’ve come across and since some people like that binding style, I’ve included it on this list.
Hopefully they’ve updated their shipping since I ordered mine because it was $40 to get 1 little notebook here to Australia.
Things you can customise
- The inside layout (from their pre-created spreads) – either daily or weekly
- Choose between dated and undated
- Make a weekly planner or meal planner etc.
- Plenty of cover designs to choose from (one of the biggest range of patterns for a custom planner company)
- Choose your text for the cover
The inside designs are a bit basic and you cannot customise the layout, font style etc.
