FREE Planner Inserts for A5 & Personal Sizes + Tips On How To Print

Get these functional & adorable FREE inserts for A5 & personal planners.  Plus, get tips on how to print free planner inserts.h

In my last post, I shared some free planner inserts set around daily planning. I designed some FREE month on two-page inserts to keep your organized.

These free planner inserts are available in both A5 and personal size plus match the daily/weekly planner from my last post.

For today’s post, I thought I would also offer you some tips on how to print your free planner inserts. I know that some of you will be familiar with printing your own inserts. For those of you who are not so confident with printing inserts at home (or if you would like to learn some new tricks), I thought this would be a great tutorial to share the tricks I have learned along the way.

I love printables for so many reasons!  Even prior to setting up my Etsy store, my preference was always to buy printables. I am just too impatient to be waiting for the postman.  When you live on a small island in the Mediterranean like I do, post can take just about forever. Plus, I really like control over the quality of what I am printing.

Hopefully, some of these tips and tricks will help make your own printing process easier.

5 Tips to help you print your Free Planner Inserts

TIP 1: For A5 inserts, ALWAYS cut your paper down to size and set the ratio 100% prior to printing your planner inserts. This will give you the best printing output. Printing booklet style or two a5 pages to an A4 sheet will not give you optimum results.

TIP 2: When printing personal size planner inserts, do NOT print booklet style or two inserts to an A4 sheet. When you instruct your computer to print booklet style, it will automatically apply shrinkage to your inserts by adjusting the borders to allow for booklet binding.

IF you have to print booklet style, you will find the need to increase the print ratio to approximately 152% in order to get the correct sizing. This leads me onto TIP 3.

TIP 3: Print personal size planner inserts onto A5 paper and set the ratio to 100%. You will still get two inserts per A4 sheet but by printing on A5 paper the printing output will be perfect without the need for trial and error.

TIP 4: Most home printers do not have the ability to print duplex on a paper size smaller than A4 but all printers have the capacity to print duplex manually. Every printer is different but most printers will have the option to allow you to print all odd pages first followed by placing the inserts back into the printer and printing all even pages.

TIP 5: When printing the even pages of your planner inserts, pay attention to the orientation that your printer prints before placing the inserts back into the printing tray. If your printer has the option of printing the even pages in reverse, choosing this option will mean that you simply place the inserts back into the printer in the order the inserts printed.

If your printer only allows you to print the even pages in sequence, you will need to re-stack your inserts so that the last page is at the bottom of the pile and the first page is at the top of the pile with all blank sides facing upwards.

You Guys! There’s a new planner in town! Yep, that’s right. Michael’s has come out with their own Recollections Planner and I can’t wait to show it off to you!

Recollections Planner Giveaway

Introducing the Recollections Planner

These planners are so cute! They are personal sized 6-ring leather binders with different insert options, including themed booklets. Some of the themed booklets help you plan everything from your budget and meal plan, to your to-do lists and other important information.

The Recollections planner is so versatile that you can literally plan anything and everything in it! Here’s a picture of what it looks like on the inside:

The leather binder has pockets on the left hand side (one big one, and 4 little ones) and on the right hand side there is a big pocket and a pocket to insert a list pad. There is also a leather pen holder as well.

Each planner comes with three decorative tab dividers, to-do inserts, and both graph and lined paper inserts. You can also choose from a variety of different 12 month calendar packs that are super cute too!

If you want to give your planner a little flair, there are plenty of super cute tassels to choose from as well! Check out this super cute pink tassel with a gold pineapple charm! (I’m seriously obsessed with pineapples these days!)

The best part though is the cost of these planners. They are so inexpensive! Everything is priced at $20 or less, and that’s before coupon! Talk about a great deal!

Crazy affordable option when you want the look and feel of a leather binder without breaking the bank!
