let's compare our planners
horizontal weekly planner
Our Horizontal Weekly Planner is perfect for people that don't need a detailed time blocked daily schedule. If you like to write a general idea of your day (a few appointments and notes about what you are doing that day and your tasks), this planner is for you! With plenty of room for task lists assigned to each day and notes for each month, this planner is a dream! This planner's weekly pages have horizontal lines separating the days, where the vertical planner has vertical columns for each day. We have Mini, Undated and Dated Horizontal Weekly Planners available.

vertical weekly planner
If you love to time block or make a vertical task list, this planner is for you. Our Vertical Weekly Planners provide an open-ended daily column on the shorter weekly pages (the Horizontal Planners have horizontal blocks) with a full month, notes, and weekly and monthly task lists always in view. We have Undated and Dated Vertical Weekly Planners available and a Mini version coming in May 2024! For helpful hints and to make your planner decision even clearer, check out our How to Use our Planners Page, our Instagram Feed highlights and our YouTube channel.
Our Undated Planners come in Horizontal and Vertical Layouts (Minis and Project Planners coming in March 2024). Our Undated Planners have everything you see in our Dated Planners, only no dates - meaning you can take planning breaks without wasting layouts and start planning whenever you'd like. Want to start your month on a Sunday, but your week on a Monday? This is the planner for you! For helpful hints and to make your planner decision even more clear, check out our How to Use our Planners Page, our Instagram Feed highlights, and our YouTube channel.
Available in our Horizontal Weekly layout (with Project and Vertical layouts coming in 2024), these planners are everything you'd get in a Horizontal Weekly, but with a more portable size. This planner is the best solution if you need a sidekick planner for tracking certain projects/topics or if you find our regular planner size too big. For helpful hints and to make your planner decision even more clear, check out our How to Use our Planners Page, our Instagram Feed highlights, and our YouTube channel.
Our Project Planners are perfect if you don't need to keep track of a lot of daily details, but you are involved with multiple projects, side hustles, or organizations which make one large to-do list something you can't manage. The simple act of breaking down a task list into categories and using your monthly spread to help set realistic goals and completion dates is pretty life changing.

Created just for teachers, our Teacher Planner provides block scheduling for Monday-Friday and a weekly task column. With student checklists, lesson planning, professional development pages and note-taking space, this planner gives you all the space you need to organize your classroom this year.

frequently asked planner questions
The difference between these planners is found in the weekly and daily pages (the short pages between the longer monthly tabbed pages). In the Horizontal Weeky Planner, these pages have a horizontal layout and don't have hourly time blocks. In the Vertical Weekly Planner, these pages have vertical columns and allow for a time blocked schedule. Both planner layouts offer space for daily, weekly, and monthly task lists and notes.
The regular Horizontal Weekly Planner's size is 12.75in w x 9.25in h (closed) and 25.5in w x 9.25in h (open). It also has each weekly schedule page labeled with the dates of the weeks and has room for 7 habits to be tracked.
The mini Horizontal Weekly Planner's size is 9.875in w x 7.25in h (closed) and 18.625in w x 7.25in h (open). It's shorter, weekly pages do not include the dates of the week at the top and has room for 6 habits (instead of 7) to be tracked.
Yes! This will release in May, with our Academic Planner release.
We have a few sizes, but all detailed sizing information can be found in each product's page. We even have images with specific sizes within each layout on most product pages!
We do not offer our planner layouts as a printable file.
Laurel has created some printable layouts that are slightly different from the planners we offer and they can be found here.
The most popular app for digital planners, GoodNotes, only allows for a single planner screen to change at a time, making it impossible to format a Laurel Denise layout on this app (we need 4 screens at one time!). Until we decide to add "tech company" to our small business, we will continue manufacturing the high quality paper planners you've come to love.
We will absolutely continue to research if we can make our unique format into a digital layout and hope to be able to offer it in the future!!
We are sampling a spiral-bound planner to see if that can be added to our collection in the future.
Unfortunately, book binding (or coptic/flat lay binding) will not work for our planner as that kind of binding does not work for pages that aren't uniform in size and width (our long and short pages make this difficult). We will continue to research ways this an become a reality in the future!
