Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: How big is a planner?

A: We currently offer three different sizes for planners, notebooks, address books, and journals. You can find more detailed information here


Q: Can I change the layouts, colors, or quotes?

A: At this time we are not taking requests for custom layouts or changes to the placement of pages. All inside planner pages coordinate to the planner cover. If selecting custom colors for a cover, those colors will also be used on the planner pages. Additional design work can be requested from our Custom Design Service. You can find more information here


Q: How do I select custom colors?

A: We offer a large section of designs available to be created with custom colors. If you'd like to customize the colors of your planner cover, be sure to select that option from the product page. We do charge a small fee for the color change because it takes more time to create your item. If the color option is not selected, your planner will be created in the colors shown. 


Q: How heavy is the paper and tabs?

A: We use an ultra-smooth, bright white, 32-pound premium quality paper. This paper is heavier than traditional copy paper and is perfect for writing with no worries of smears. Although it works great for most pen types; we don't recommend sharpies. Our tabbed pages are slightly heavier than the pages and the tabs are fully laminated.   


Q: What layouts do you offer? 

A: We offer four different layout options; horizontal, vertical, family and appointment. We also offer notebooks, journals, address and recipe books. You can find out more about our layouts here.


Q: Is there a character count limit for the covers or Everything Planner layouts?

A: We don't currently have a character count limit for our covers. We can make most requests work. If for some reason the name or quote is too long to fit in the area provided, we will contact you for additional information or options prior to creating your item. For our Everything, Teacher, Student, and Wedding Planners we do have recommendations for the maximum number of characters per row/section:
3 sections - 26 characters
5 sections - 16 characters
7 sections - 12 characters.

Q: What material are the coils?

A: We use heavy gauge metal coils for all our bound book products. 


Q: What holidays are marked?

A: We mark major US holidays including but not limited to: New Years, Martin Luther King Day, Valentine's Day, President's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. We include a full list of major US holidays in our "At a Glance" tabbed section and the holidays are marked on our monthly layouts. 


Q: When does a planner start?

A: Park of what MBKplanners so special is that you can select a planner to begin any time you'd like! Planners run for a standard of 12 months. Additional months can be added to any planner or notebook creating up to a 15 month planner. Something to keep in mind is that a planner beginning in January will end in December and a planner beginning in September will end in August (12 months).
