Tips 

  • If you are printing your planner cover at home, it is highly recommended to use a fresh ink cartridge and higher quality paper. White card stock or 24lb - 32lb paper is best.
  • Borderless Printing: Check your printer for a borderless printing option. If your printer does not have the option for borderless printing, the page design will not print to the edges and there will be a white border along the sides.
  • Editable Text Fields: If the file has editable text fields they will appear as blue boxes in Adobe Reader (refer to individual product listing descriptions to see if the file has editable text). It is recommended to save the file after adding new information to each page. I also recommend closing the file, re-opening it, and making sure your changes have saved before adding text throughout the entire document.

  • 3 initial monogram format:
    • First Name Initial: lowercase

    Editing Text Planner Covers 

    Editing Text on Planner Covers

    • Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader on your computer. Using another program may not display the correct fonts or text alignment.
    • Editable Plain Text: Please note that the font in the plain text planner covers can not be changed to be a monogram. The plain text can be edited to be a name or subject. The text field will only accommodate the text that fits in that space. I recommend abbreviated titles or following the instructions for adding your own custom text. When you add your own custom text you will also be able to select your own font and color. The font options will vary depending on what fonts you have on your computer.
