Cover: New direction - The reason we are printing covers this year rather than embossing is because we have to incorporate barcodes, and we won't use stickers (yes, we're that stubborn). That, and the some of the papers from past years have been discontinued or are difficult to secure in the quantities we need.
Cover Colors: We named them for lesser known animals as a reminder of what a remarkable gift planet earth is, and how important it is to work to protect it.
No way around it, we have been hit hard by cost increases across the board, and like our vendors and manufacturers, we are forced to raise prices.
Sticking with 100% Recycled Paper is costly, but the estimated savings (for this round of planners) of 16 tons of fresh wood/trees, 7,700 gallons of water, and 13 tons of CO2 - keeps us as committed as ever.

Add-On: Sticky Notes Note Pages
Since receiving the samples, I have been using 1-2 sheets per week. I layer them on top of an already full notes page - this keeps me from needing to carry around an additional notebook.
What makes other planners “trash":
Cover Materials: Fabric, leather, pleather
Binding Methods: Book-binding / spiral-binding
Do-dads: Elastic bands, ribbons, plastic tabs
All Wisdom Planners are cover-to-cover 100% authentically recyclable - as opposed to "technically" recyclable - we consult with waste haulers and recyclers to make sure there is true recycling value to our products at the end of their usefulness.
Most other planners on the market are destined for landfill, which means all of the paper, along with the binding and cover materials will be permanent waste (nothing composts in a landfill) for the rest of time.
The current design of spiral bound and book bound planners is the equivalent of cutting down trees and putting them in the trash - it's absurd, environmentally ignorant, and unsustainable.
Place used planner in the paper recycling bin.
If inclined, go the extra mile and tear off the front and back covers and place everything in the paper recycling bin - this makes it easier for recycling haulers to access the white (interior) paper that often fetches higher recycling $$.
RETURNS Free within 30 days of receipt. If there is an issue with your purchase, please reach out so we can make it right.
SHIPPING Orders typically packed within 24-48 hours Monday - Friday.
Orders ship via USPS or UPS. Shipping prices are the actual rates we pay (the true cost of shipping from Northern CA. - Sorry Maine!). As we grow, we will negotiate more favorable shipping rates, but for now, we pack every order (plastic-free), load up our cars, and deliver to a post office in a nearby town because our local Post Office refuses to accept or pick up the “large” number of packages we have outgoing on a normal basis.
Thanks for your patience while we navigate how to scale what we’re doing!
+ Monthly At-A-Glance Expanded to two page spread accompanied with a full notes page + Months visually tabbed to easily flip to current month + 6 columns per weekday - 3 columns per weekend day + Optional header line for subjects + Perforated corners
We received a number of requests for additional notes pages in the Weekly Planner, but this year the page count was increased a full 16 pages due to the inclusion of monthly spreads throughout the book. Adding 4 more notes pages (requires increments of 4) pushed it beyond our wallet zone with paper availability scarce, and costs at record highs.
