LP PLANNERS / MY NEW SHOP

I love stationary, I love planners too. However, I was getting bored of the UK planner market because it wasn't fulfilling my needs. I loved the Erin Condren and Plum Paper designs planners because they were a scrapbook/journal and diary in one, however they cost over the earth to buy with shipping from the US. So I decided to use the design skills I have and make my own and create LP Planners.




With similar wide box styling for each day with Morning, Afternoon and Evening boxes with plenty of room for stickers and writing day to day plans. It has note pages and sections and with every new month there is a full spread calendar over 2 days.


I felt like it needed to be simple but exactly what is missing in the UK. I was looking at paying £50 for an American planner and I wanted to cut these costs to make it viable in the UK.

By no means am I the best business woman, these are early days, I made this first diary for myself to see if I could succeed in creating exactly what I wanted and after a month of preparation its finally in my hands.

Here's what's inside:

  • Lined paper at front and back pages
  • Full month calendar over two pages
  • A week over 2 pages with note sections
  • Laminate cover on front and back to keep the cover and book in good condition
  • 120gsm paper to ensure you can write in any pens/stickers and decoration 
  • White wire binding which means you can lay flat your planner

I decided to purposely leave out pages for name and address, I didn't see the need for extra pages that were just for decoration as I will be decorating my weeks accordingly. It has a rainbow effect currently with every month with a different colour theme month appropriate. 


So here's what I'd like to know from YOU, the reader and the potential customer.. Would you buy it? Are you after a planner like this without paying the odds for it? Would you like a personal UK service that means you can add in extra pages or different themes? 


If you would be interested please say so, say what you'd pay for it I obviously know the costs but would love to know what budgets need, tell me your ideas! I am thinking about opening an Etsy shop in the next few weeks but need to know if I'm investing then I need custom! 

Thanks so much for reading, this is a scary project for me as I could of just kept it for myself but I want everyone else to have it if they feel like they're missing out in the UK market too!
