I stumbled across the Graphique planner while searching for a new weekly planner to try in my favorite layout: days of the week in horizontal format on the left and lined writing space (perfect for list making) on the right.
- Size: 5.5″ wide x 8″ high
- Book / sewn binding
- This belongs to page in case your planner is lost
- Dates at a glance
- Neutral inside pages
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- No monthly calendar
Let’s take a closer look!

Soft bendy cover (that feels like fabric) with gold foil dots and year.
Approx 1cm thick
This belongs to page
National holidays for the USA.
This planner is very much a case of ‘just the basics’ – it doesn’t have a monthly calendar.
The weekly spread is in my favorite layout – days of the week on the left and lined notes on the right page.
The dates at a glance boxes are repeated on each weekly spread which is a bit of a waste of space (especially since there’s an annual dates at a glance page)
Saturday and Sunday share the same amount of space as a weekday.
The line spacing is just right! (0.7cm)
Dates at a glance
There are no extra pages in this planner.
No tabs, but there is a built in ribbon bookmark.
I tried various ballpoint, gel, fine tip and marker tip pens. Almost all of them had bad ghosting or even bled through.
Pros of the Planner
- Portable size
- Very lightweight
- All the stuff you need and no extra pages that you don’t
Cons of the Planner
- No tabs
- The mini monthly calendars are a waste of space in the weekly spread
- Saturday and Sunday share the same amount of planning space as 1 weekday
- The paper had bad ghosting / bleed through
Would I use this planner?
Yes. My all time favorite layout is days of the week in horizontal format on the left and lined writing space (perfect for list making) on the right. I don’t tend to use a monthly calendar anymore (especially not in the traditional boxes for each day format that most planners include) so I actually think it’s a good thing that this planner leaves it out.
The paper quality is quite bad in this planner though, so I’d probably only use it for pre-planning the week. It could also work as a second planner if you need just a bit more space to plan without having to pay for and lug around another planner.
