I purchased quite a few Agendio planners in a recent haul, one of which was a custom, personalised day to a page planner.
The Agendio Planners are one of the few brands out there that are truly custom. You can choose your cover design, cover text, tabs or no tabs, inside page layout, extra pages (and design the extra pages) etc.
- Size: A5, 7 x 9″ or US letter (I chose the A5 size)
- Softcover or hardcover (I chose hardcover)
- Coil binding or wire binding with the hardcover
- Free cover personalisation
- Dates at a glance page
- You choose if you want a monthly calendar (I opted not to)
- Tabs optional (cost extra)
- Can have different daily layouts for weekdays versus weekend
- Neutral or colorful inside pages (colorful costs extra)
- Plenty of extra pages to choose from (and customise)
Let’s take a closer look!
To enlarge the screen of the video, click the square icon in the bottom right hand corner of the video (it will say ‘full screen’ when you hover your mouse over the icon).
I much prefer cardstock covers with a separate clear plastic protective cover over a laminated cover – they are much more sturdier.
A5 compared to 7 x 9″
The thickness of your planner will depend on the duration you choose and the number of extra pages
Approx 0.5″ thick
You choose if you want to include a monthly calendar – I opted not to.
You get to choose what daily planning layout you want from a number of base layouts that you can then customise.
I don’t tend to use daily planners except on weekends however if you’re someone that does use a daily planner, you can choose a weekday and then a different weekend layout.
I opted for a traditional hourly layout (starting at 9am – not a super early time like most daily planners!) and an AM, PM and evening layout:
You can choose between colorful and neutral. I purchased a few planners in the haul so alternated between colorful and neutral. You do have to pay extra for color printing so I’d just go with black and you can add color with pens, highlighters, stamps, washi tape etc.
You can choose if you want lined notes space at the bottom or checkboxes, line spacing, dashed or solid lines etc.
You get to choose the headings for each section. I opted for priority and then a blank box which I’ll probably use for pomodoro tracking. You could use for meal planning, weather tracker etc.
There are plenty of extra pages to choose from. You can see some of the extras I chose in this Agendio I purchased previously.
Tabs are not included as standard – you’ll need to pay extra if you want them. There’s also the option for perforated corners (which is cheaper than tabs).
I opted to add tabs to this one. There’s a gap as I didn’t choose any add on pages however if you do, you can choose the label for the tabs.
I did a pen test of another Agendio I purchased in this post. Here are the results (since the paper is the same):
The paper of the planner is so smooth and nice to write on. I tried various balllpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens – there was some ghosting on the back side of the page. I also did some highlighter and stamp swatches. The highlighters also had some ghosting and, as always, the MAMBI stamps bled through the page ?
My all time favorite pens, the Pilot Frixion erasable worked well ?
Pros of the Planner
- Customise practically everything
- You choose line spacing
- Checkboxes or notes
- Start time for the daily planning
- Multiple layouts to choose from and can tweak to suit your needs
- Multiple page sizes available
- Can customise the tabs
- Plenty of add on pages to choose from (which you can fully customise titles, line spacing etc.)
Cons of the Planner
- Tabs and color printing cost extra
- Expensive international shipping
- Very limited (and not very appealing) cover options
Would I use this planner?
I’ll admit I mainly purchased this just to see what an Agendio daily looks like and to show you blog readers. I’m at my day job during the week (and have a separate planning system for that) so will only be using it on weekends.
If you like the sound of this planner company, you can order your own Agendio here (using my referral link!)
