What supplies do I need to get started?

To get started, you are going to need 1) Adobe Acrobat Reader to open and print the file/s. It’s totally free to download, here is a link! 2) You will also need a printer (or you can always have your file/s printed at your local print shop), 3) Good, quality paper, 4) A paper cutter, and 5) An adjustable 6-Hole punch for planners. It's SUPER easy to get started and your digital download comes with detailed instructions!

What is the best paper to print my planner inserts on?

For the planner inserts and sidebars, I recommend you use good, quality paper of at least 100gsm. I personally like 118gsm=32lb bond=80lb text and you can find it on Amazon here.

For the journaling cards and dashboards you will want to use a paper that holds ink well. I use a 216gsm=80lb Cover (Cardstock). Here is the link for it on Amazon.

What kind of paper cutter should I use?

All of the files include crop marks to help you and/or a professional print shop with knowing where the paper is to be cut. There are many paper cutters and styles in the market but I really find it useful to use a paper cutter that features a cut-line indicator so that you know exactly where the blade will cut. The Fiskars SureCut Portable Trimmer features a cut-line indicator and you can find it here on Amazon.

Which hole punch should I use?

All of my inserts, sidebars and dashboards have a wide margin so that you have plenty of room to punch holes. I like to use Rapesco's Adjustable 6-Hole Organizer/Diary Punch which allows you to punch holes for all of the planner sizes. You can find it here on Amazon!
