The Studio Stationery planner is undated which I prefer as I can’t stay loyal to one planner company – I want to try them all! (well, almost all of them). With undated planners you can stop and start using them anytime without feeling like you’re ‘wasting’ any weeks.
Some of my favorite Studio Stationery items
- Size: 7″ wide x 9.75″ high
- Wire binding
- This belongs to page in case your planner is lost
- Budget and spending log for each month
- Brian dump, sketch and notes pages
- Annual / monthly planning
- Neutral inside pages
- 2 page weekly spread (starts on Monday)
- No Tabs
- No monthly calendar
Price: $35 AUD
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).
The covers are hardbound / sturdy.
There are 2 cover styles to choose from – both planners have the same inside layout.
I normally go for rainbow but I’m addicted to gold foil at the moment so if I had to choose a favorite, it’d be this one:
This belongs to page
The planner has a snap in ruler specially designed to work with the wire binding:
This planner doesn’t have a monthly calendar.
The week starts Monday. The planner is undated so you can start planning anytime.
My all time favorite style of weekly planning layout – days of the week on one side of the spread and lined note taking / list making / rule up a habit tracker etc. on the other page.
Dates at a glance
One thing I’ve noticed with Studio Stationery products, is that the font size is very small!
There are plenty of lined notes pages at the back of the planner.
There are no tabs in this planner. As I mentioned in the video, you could use washi tape to code the pages e.g. a different pattern or color stuck to the edge of the page to find things easier. Alternatively snip a small portion of the corner of each weekly spread to create a bookmark of what week you’re up to.
The planner comes with a few pages of functional stickers in a variety of colors.
The round icon stickers that come with the planner (and the sticker books from the same brand) are sized to perfectly fit the weekly spread of the planner.
Studio stationery also have 2 sticker books which I really like – lots of cute functional stickers!
The pocket folder is built into the back cover of the planner, it’s approx 1cm wide.
Pros of the Studio Stationery Planner
- Portable size
- Black and white so you can decorate with any color and it won’t clash with the colors of the planner
- Pocket folder
- Plenty of extra pages
Cons of the Studio Stationery Planner
- No monthly calendar
- The wire binding means it’s hard to add extra inserts (although there are plenty of notes pages so you could stick it to those instead)
- The binding doesn’t allow extra room for stickers so you may need to tear out weeks after they’re finished
- The font size of the planner is small (and so is the line spacing of the Studio Statinery products in general)
Would I use this planner?
Yes, this planner has my favorite type of planner layout – horizontal weekly planning on one page + notes space on the right page layout. Overall it’s a very simple, minimalist weekly planner.
