All planners and products are in stock! We currently fulfill all orders ourselves and do not have a fulfillment center. Your patience is appreciated as we work hard to fulfill all orders. Please allow for 1-3 day processing times. Orders shipped via UPS or USPS ground shipping (approximately 2-7 days for domestic orders, and 7-15 days for international orders).
Yes, most planners have a spiral binding so the pages will lay flat. My vision for this product was one that would look lovely on your shelf and desk - metal rings do not look very lovely. However, I understand the need for a planner and notebook that lays flat. I scored the earth for someone who could help me create a flat lay book with tabs (harder than you might think), and found a company who can sew the pages in smaller bundles and not adhere the spine of those pages to the spine of the hardcover. This allows for those pages to have some wiggle room and to lay as flat as possible for a hardcover book. They will stay propped open on your desk, AND look lovely when closed. I’m so excited for this feature! If I get enough requests for my planners with a spiral binding, I may consider manufacturing that option in the future.
Even if you are a pen and paper person, don’t overlook the digital products! They are amazing companions to the physical products - or even on their own for those who love to plan digitally. I have provided and will continue to provide a library full of tutorials to get you started with your digital products. The note taking apps you can use with the digital products are very user friendly and intuitive. If you find you have more questions, just do a google search. There are MANY tutorials to help you learn all the features and perks of digital planners and notebooks.
The most common complaint with note taking Apps is due to hyperlinks not working. If after you import your digital planners and notebooks into the Goodnotes App (or others) and find tapping the tabs won’t lead you to your destination, please uninstall the App from your device, reinstall it, upload the digital product again and try your hyperlinks again. This should do the trick!
Your digital products come to you in a PDF format. You can’t do a whole lot with this document. The magic happens when you couple the product with a note taking App. The most popular one for Apple devices (and by far my favorite) is called GoodNotes App. Another popular choice is Noteability. Here is a great article for similar apps for an Android device, though I have never used them. With these apps, you will have all the amazing features that make these digital planners and notebooks . . . well . . . amazing! These Apps are very inexpensive ($5-$10) and it is a one time purchase.

I know this will bother some of you, but my search for all my required features led me to a wonderful company in China. It cost me months trying to find a US company that could print my planners affordably. I could not find one. I would have had to sell my planners for close to $70-$100 to make any profit, and the financial risk was astronomical - impossible even, for me. I knew this was a price range that wouldn’t see success so I had to source outside of the US. Like it or not, this was the nature of the beast.
