Additional options to add

Below you can add your additional options to this product

Chunky Clasp

Your A5 clasp will be turned into an A4 clasp.

€ 30,00

Big Back Pocket Custom Made Ring Organizers

A full length wallet-type pocket lengthwise across the back of the binder. This large area adds multifunctionality to the use of your planner.

€ 62,50

Leather Flyleaf Manager A5

As well as adding an element of luxury to the organiser, the flyleaf provides a smoother writing surface to write against. The color of the flyleaf will be the same color as your binder. Outside color on the front side and inside color on the back side.

Measurements: 215mm x 150mm (+/- 8,46 x 5,91 inches)

from € 37,50

Secretarial flap

A secretarial flap is a slip pocket that is open at the top and can be added on both the left and right inside lay-out of the planner. Since it is not stitched at the top it gives you easy access to insert and take out any items placed there.
*Please note that if you choose this option, the full height slip pocket closest to the spine is turned into a secretarial flap and will no longer be there.

€ 37,50

Squared Corners

The 4 corners of your custom made item will be squared instead of rounded.

(Please note that IF you order a flyleaf as well, it will NOT automatically have squared corners too. If you would like your flyleaf to have squared corners, please add this in your product notes. It has a cost of 2x€10,-)

€ 40,00

Extra popper

This adds a second popper to your planner, either on the clasp or on the front cover, in order to tightly close or give more space to your planner.

€ 15,00

Ring Protectors

Ring Protectors are two strips of leather sewn into both sides of the ring mechanism that cushion the rings and also prevent the interior of the leather from being dented by the rings over time.

€ 27,50

Widening to Custom Size (5 to 26mm)

Make your A5 planner 5-26mm wider. 5-10mm is €26.50. 11-26mm is €37.50. 

 (PS. this is calculated on a closed binder, so 1mm wider means 1mm on each side = 2mm in total on an open binder.)

from € 26,50

Bigger Pen Loop

The maximum pen thickness that fits our elasticated leather pen loop is 10mm in diameter ⌀.
If you would like the elasticated leather pen loop to fit a bigger pen, you can choose a diameter of 11-16mm here.

€ 5,00

'Steve' Layout on left-hand side

€ 35,00

Full height slip pocket on the outside of the planner

A full height slip pocket on the outside front or back of the planner.

* Please note that if you select this option, your clasp will automatically be lengthened by 12mm! (If you want your clasp to be longer than that, please mention this in the product comments.)

Outside facing slip pocket

An Outside facing slip pocket has its opening towards the outer side of the planner.
(A slip pocket is a 'slide-in' pocket that is closed at the top and bottom).

€ 47,50

Longer Clasp

Make your clasp 5-25mm longer = €15.00
(PS. 1 inch = +/- 25mm) This option is for the planner stuffers (you know who you are ;)
Please note: there is no extra popper included in this option.

€ 15,00


Add a personal touch to your planner by including a word or phrase of your choice. You can choose between silver, gold, and blind (this means that the letters will be pressed into the planner). The position of the embossing that you can choose from are: on the bottom right of the Front outside area or on the bottom left of the Left inside area.
*For Nappa leather we advise you to select silver or gold, since blind embossing might fade over time due to the suppleness of the leather.

€ 30,00

Zipper Compartment Manager A5

The zipper compartment is a wallet style compartment inserted into the rings of the planner.
The zipper compartment will be the same colour as the inside colour of your planner.

Measurements: 215mm x 150mm (+/- 8,46 x 5,91 inches).
