Poppin has introduced a new line of 18-month planners in the classic A5 (5×8.25″) size. The books feature the same flexible leatherette covers, orange ribbon bookmark, gusseted pocket in the back and paper stock as their journal notebooks. What makes these different is the 236 pages of planning pages printed in a graduated ink color. The first pages are printed in bright cyan blue and the color slowly shifts as you got through the months to citrus green. This color shift is accented by the coordinating end papers — cyan in the front, lime in the back.
The planner starts with a list of US holidays and then features a 2-page monthly calendar followed by week-at-a-glance pages, starting with Monday. The right hand page features lines for note taking. Towards the back are extra pages including lined, a dotted line grid (not grid and not dot grid but a hybrid of the two), a map of the US, a celestial map, and a few pages with a “face grid”.
Lightly debossed on the cover is the dates “13 14” and the Poppin logo, all very subtle. The planner is also available with Pool Blue covers like my notebook and back. All planners have color coordinated elastics.
18-month planners are $15 each and available directly from Poppin.
I’m mid-planner right now but am seriously considering buying a Poppin planner for 2014. Its been unwrapped from the cellophane but is unused. How about if I give this one away to a lucky reader? Someone just headed back to school or hoping to get organized before 2014?
