If you have an idea for a custom planner or guided journal and are motivated to create one for sharing, selling, or personal use, the options are endless.

Guided journals usually include prompts, snippets of information, activities and more to help participants achieve goals and think creatively. They can track food, fitness, finances, emotions, health and more.

Printable Bullet Journals (BuJo)

Coil bound Journal

Bullet journaling is a planner, diary, and mindfulness tool all in one. Designed to improve productivity, help with organization and enable an outlet for creativity, bullet journals allow the user to customize the experience to fit their goals.

The bullet journal typically uses a series of symbols to track pieces of information. A key at the start of the journal explains the symbols and what they mean: task, event, completed task etc. (Such as: ‘•’ means tasks incomplete, ‘!’ means great idea, etc.)

Bullet journals often feature a monthly log, which is a two-page spread that includes a calendar and a task list of things to address that month. Often a year-at-a-glance calendar is added as well and referred to as a “future log,” for planning major events and for noting birthdays and vacation plans.

Bullet journals offer a high level of personalization, so the user can create exactly what they want, add their own designs to compliment each section, and keep their thoughts, daily activities and goals in an organized manner.

Planner and Bullet Journal FAQs

A If you are wondering, "how do I print a planner?" or "how do I print a bullet journal?", talk to the 48 Hour Books customer service team. We can answer all of your questions. We’re always prepared to help self-publishing authors make their dream to print a reality.

If you’re looking for a planner printer or bullet journal printer, we have what you need. 48 Hour Books can print your planner or journal in large or small quantities (as few as 10 copies).

The printing process is fairly simple: Submit your files online by visiting our order page, fill out your specifications, and place your order.

A Your planner or journal can be either color or black and white. Both options have their appeal. Black and white is more economical, and it also allows the user to add their own color, enhancing the creativity factor.

With black and white, you can still add designs and illustrations throughout (or even a ghosted image in the background with fine lines over top, for writing).

A For planner printing or bullet journal printing, 48 Hour Books’ standard 60 lb. paper works well. If you intend for users to write in the book, we recommend printing on an uncoated stock.

For instances where you think your user will want to use markers to write, we recommend a thicker stock (70 lb. or 80 lb.). Just make sure that the thicker stock won’t make your planner or journal too bulky. It needs to be portable, flexible, and practical for writing purposes.

48 Hour Books offers printed proofs, which we recommend adding to your order for planners and bullet journals. With a printed proof, you can see the finished product before your full run of books print. You can practice writing on the pages to ensure it will work exactly as planned.
