Days of the week stickers are some of my favorite functional planner stickers yet there aren’t many brands that sell them. If you don’t want to learn how to make your own planner stickers using a Silhouette machine (or don’t have the space to store one), you can use the Poooliprint pocket printer instead.

Before the Pen
I downloaded the ‘Snacker Comic’ font. It’s free, if you Google the font name there are multiple websites you can download it from (such as font space or dafont). I then made days of the week phrases in Microsoft Word and saved as a JPG file. As I knew I’d be using the white paper Poooliprint refills there was no need to worry about making it PNG file format (transparent background). I used font size 50.
I chose the uppercase version and cropped the image. If you want to use it too, right click on the image below and save it to your phone (or save it on your computer and email it to yourself to open on your phone).
I then opened the image in the Poooliprint app. Make sure you choose ‘bold’ in the Poooliprint menu otherwise there can be speckles amongst the black once printed onto the label paper.
Before the Pen
I peeled off the sticky backing and placed them in my Francheville notebook.
I was going to use some Happy Planner black and white skinny washi but thought it would be too skinny relative to the size of the stickers.
So I opted for rainbow Doodlebug washi tape instead
I wanted to see how it would look with the stickers over the top of the washi tape so did that layout too:
After the Pen
I preferred the days of the week over the washi so went ahead and filled in the week
The rainbow washi tape was a very effective and functional way to add colors to divide up the page. The Doodlebug rainbow washi is a close match for many rainbow pen brands including Papermate Inkjoy, BLOT, Parkoo erasable and Kaco Gel.
I chose bubble writing because the Poooliprint can only do black and white printing. So to add some color. I was going to highlight over the stickers but decided coloring in the letters would look neater.
I used transparent numbers stickers I found at Kmart for the dates.
I’ll be honest, peeling the stickers off the label paper was fiddly and time consuming. Because I cut the stickers on an angle to mirror the bubble writing (i.e, rounded corners) it was hard to get a good grip to peel them off. I’ll be leaving straight edges next time or peel them off and then do the rounded edges before sticking them into my planner.
I went and colored in the days of the week stickers which looked good except the purple Muji Marker is too dark.

Would I use this spread again?
Yes, bubble font is easy to add color without taking up any extra space in my planner as I’m going to be adding the weekdays anyway. Now that I’ve made the days of the week template in Word and already imported it into the Poooliprint I can keep re-printing as many times as I like! I want to try doing other text label stickers too. And maybe some pattern stripes to create ‘DIY washi tape.’
I almost always use this same weekly layout nowadays with the weekdays on one page and a to do list on the other. It’s quick to setup and I can easily add extra inserts or just use another page if I need more to do list space.
