It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, it’s obviously not Christmas season, but for planner addicts everywhere it certainly feels like it is. It is time for the new 2018 Erin Condren Life Planner releases! I know, it feels like we just got our 2017 planners, but there’s no rest for those that plan ahead. This year is the 10th anniversary of the Erin Condren Life Planner, which is so impressive! I’ve been an EC fan since my first planner in 2013, and I’ve had one ever since. Throughout the years I’ve seen many changes and improvements made to the beautiful life planner, and this year is no different. While the general idea behind the bright and colorful Life Planner is the same, there are so many new options that allow many people to make this planner what they want it to be. Let’s take a look and dive into the 2017-2018 Erin Condren Life Planner.
There are SO many options for personalizing your planner this year. Here’s the breakdown:
2 Color Schemes: Colorful or Neutral
3 Layouts: Vertical, Horizontal, & Hourly
4 Coil Color Options: Gold, Silver, Rose Gold, or Black
Cover options: Interchangeable, personalized covers with 12 new classic designs and 3 new metallic designs (with multiple color options in each) or a non-removable, leather-like luxe color option with 3 color choices (light taupe, sapphire, and black), the same coil options, and 4 (3 letter only) personalization options (blind print, silver, gold, or rose gold)
Brand new this year is the HARDBOUND Life Planner. It comes in 4 colors (each color book has a different color and theme inside) and 2 sizes. 5 x 8 (horizontal only) & 8 x 11 (vertical layout only).
I think that covers the basic idea of what’s available. I got my hands on a vertical layout, colorful Life Planner, so that’s what you’ll see more of below. However, you can see pictures of everything else on the Erin Condren website.
First, and quite possibly the biggest change, is the paper upgrade that all Life Planners received this year. This year EC used Mohawk paper company to put thicker 80# paper in our planners, giving us a more sturdy page with less pen bleedthrough. The tabbed pages are also thicker and no longer require plastic reinforcements at the binding. A small detail, but worth noting. Read more
