In my Etsy shop, I make planner inserts in 2 different sizes. Personal and A5. If you aren’t a planner obsessed like me this can sometimes be confusing because both these sizes can fit a Filofax, and a Kikki K yet they are so different because these planners come in multiple sizes.
In this post, I will give you a summary of which planners are which sizes. I will focus on my favourite type of planners, ring bound planners. Because of their diversity, durability and how customisable these planners can be, in my opinion, they are perfect if you need more than just a dated planner.
With ring bound planners you have the flexibility to add/remove pages and to choose inserts that are specific to your needs as well as chose a real leather cover or a faux to suit more your budget. Another good thing is that they come in multiple sizes.
When I was choosing my planner I had in mind two things to consider:
- how portable I need this planner to be
- how much space I need to write in
In a nutshell, there are six most common ring round planners sizes out there
A4 & Letter size
A4 (8.27 × 11.69 in) such as Filofax Finsbury
Letter size (8.5×11″) such as Frank convey monarch
A5 is the size that I personally use and love most (5.8 x 8.3 in)
Planners that use A5 inserts:
- Carpe Diem A5 Planner
- Filofax A5
- Kikki K large – what I’m using now
- Louis Vuitton GM planner
Ideal for carrying it around with you these inserts are 3.75″ x 6.75
- Filofax Personal
- Kikki K medium
- Kate spade agenda
- Louis Vuitton MM planner
4.72 x 3.18 mm
- Filofax pocket
- Kikki K small
- Kate Spade pocket
- Mullberry pocket book
Once you figured out which planner suits you best it’s time to look for inserts.
