Free A5 2012 diary sets to download and print for your Filofax

Here they are, then.

When Ray and I began talking about developing these we imagined there would be a fair bit of work involved, and there was. I don't think we realised how much fun it would be, nor quite how many people would get excited about getting hold of them.

Today we're making available the 2012 diary sets. These are layouts each covering the whole of 2012. They are created as A4 documents. To use them as A5 inserts, print the document in booklet mode on A4 paper, then use a guillotine to divide each sheet into two and punch the required holes, which the templates are set up with mirrored gutters to accommodate. Alternatively if you have A5 paper then your PC and/or printer will be able to scale the page to fit the paper size.

Of course, you can print these on any paper you like; coloured, patterned and fountain pen-friendly are all options, as is plain white A4 printer paper.

So, here are your downloads.

Enhanced TM Week Per View


Download Word version or pdf version


Version 2 of the Enhanced TM Week Per View - this has fewer lines and therefore more space to write in.

Download Word Version or pdf version

Vertical Week Per View

Two Days Per Page unlined

Two Days Per Page lined

Also still available are the Two Page Per Day and One Page Per Day sets.

Are these templates nearly but not quite right for you? If so, watch out for when we post the source files for you to download and adapt as you wish. We'll make them available here soon.

Also coming soon are some Personal size diary inserts, we are still refining these.

Again my thanks go to Ray for all his help and hard work in making these happen.

  2. Thanks for all the hard work, I can't imagine how much time went into this! I'm loving having all those different layouts to experiment!

  3. Steve, the problem seems fixed, I can now see the comments, and comment myself.

    Love the new layouts. You and Ray have done a terrific job on this! I love that I can try out any layout, for a week before I decide which works best for me! Brilliant, really! For now, I'm using up my blank punched A5 Time/System note paper, but will investigate in superior paper quality once I decide on layout!

  7. I would really like to know the best source for A5 paper. I know alot of people print on A4 and cut, but I just can't be bothered with it, and I hate having to measure out half the page etc etc. I know some suggestions have already been made, but perhaps after people have trialed this fabulous new layouts anyone who has found some options could let us know what has been the most successful?

    I'm really looking forward to getting the source files so I can edit to my hearts content and get the pages looking exactly as I would want them. For example I want to include a meal section amongst others. Thank you so much to Steve & Ray.

  10. Ahhh!!!! These are so cool but I don't know what I'm doing when I go to print them. I live in US and have 8 1/2 x 11" paper. Please help me. Thanks.

  11. @Peg, you're going to need to find a supply of either A4 or A5 paper. I know there are lots of readers here who live in teh US and could probably steer you to a source. Hopefully, someone will chip in.

  12. Thank you for making this wonderful diary templates! I couldn´t wait to download the "Enhanced TM Week Per View" and I´m really wondering if you are a saint not selling them, I would have paid for this one...(and still do, so, if theres any donation chance, I´ll find out, hehe) So great and generous, thanks again!

    You can print to letter size paper as I do and trim them as needed. On print options choose "booklet printing" under page scaling (if printing a pdf). If the scale looks odd adjust it to suit you. :)

  14. Hi Everyone
    Thanks for all your comments and feedback. There will be more info and coming up in the next week or so.

    We plan to make the personal size inserts available around the middle of next week.

    But to pick up on some specific comments:

    @peg, try the files as they are, but let the printer or your PC scale the page to fit your paper, I'm not sure what they will look like. But try a couple of pages and see what they come out like.

    @Artjournal88 Think of the templates as 'donationware' If you wish to make a donation, then by all means do so here:
    http://www.chimwemwe.net/help.html

    This is a charity run for a very good cause by a Philofaxy reader/supporter and I've donated via PayPal to them and I know others have as well. But please don't think you have to donate. It's totally voluntary.

    Thanks
    Steve

    1. Hi Steve

      I'm trying to print onto booklet mode like you have said above, but my printer isn't giving me the booklet mode option.... please help!!

    2. Hi Janice
      OK in that case you will have to cut the paper in half so it is then A5 in size, which you would have to do anyway.
      Then put the paper in the manual feed tray, set your PC to print on A5 paper and then set the print job to print 'odd pages' only first, then when they have all printed, turn the paper over, make sure the paper is in the right order and then print the 'Even pages only'
      This post might help you a bit more http://philofaxy.blogspot.com/2013/06/printing-your-own-diary-inserts.html

  16. Ray, Sandra & Steve
    I printed how Sandra said to and it WORKED, only the calendar side is coming out on the right and the notes section is on left. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. And the 8 1/2 size paper is not as wide as I'm guessing the A4 or A5 paper is. May have to invest in some. Since I have both the A5 and personal, which size paper do you recommend I buy as I will be printing for both Filos? Also, do you think I'm printing wrong for it to come out with the calendar on the right side? Thanks SO MUCH to all of you. This is really cool. And to know that I'll be able to tweak it, THAT'S awesome! Peg

  17. @steve: great, thank you for the suggestion, it´s donated, and I feel better now, hehe. I always want to give a little bit at least whenever I find anything that I really appreciate. So you made me happy, too. I bookmarked chimwemwe in case of further "purchases" aka downloads.

  18. @Peg,

    The template is set up to print the pages in booklet mode. If you follow the link in Steve's post you'll see how to do that. Assuming you have booklet mode, they'll print the right way around as long as you retain the first page, the title sheet, which forces the margins one page on. If you don't have booklet mode but have the option of 2 pages per sheet, then delete the face sheet, or print from page 2, and ensure duplexing is set to flip on the short edge.

  19. When we release the Personal layouts next week they'll be set to print on a4 paper, because that way you can print onto the quality paper of your choice. Subsequently, we'll provide versions you can print straight onto Filofax personal paper should you want to.

    In the US, Staples carries A5 paper on their website. It can be delivered to a store near you in 2 days for pickup, or a few more days to your house. Staples or Fedex Kinko's will cut it in half and hole punch it for about six bucks. The ream of A5 paper is about ten bucks.

  21. Steve and Ray - these are fantastic! And thank you for suggesting donations to Chimwemwe - that's really kind of you and I can assure everyone on here that every penny given goes to the kids in Malawi.

  22. These are amazing, thank you for going to so much effort! Start making binders and you might put Filofax out of business!

  23. These are seriously better than the ones designed by Filofax. The layout is more graphically sophisticated. I also prefer the font, which is clean, crisp and modern. Pay attention Filofax!

  24. Ray- you were right. I was skipping the front page. It printed correctly after the change.

    cgarsnrealest8- thanks for the Staples lead. I'm going to order it tomorrow. Just wish they offered it in a little heavier weight.

    Ray & Steve- Do you think the file will be available next week so that I can tweak it my way?

    You guys are great. I can't imagine the time you spent doing this.

    Thanks again for your help.

  30. Wow - thanks guys. Moving everything into one personal FF seems to be working for me so far, but seeing these templates is making me seriously want to move back to A5 - lol x

  32. Hello
    I've just printed off my TM Enhanced Week View on A5 paper from these people: http://www.mondigroup.com/products/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-80/
    I have the 80 gsm IQ Premium paper.

    Does anyone find the 5 spaces per day too cramped? I've produced a revised version with only 4 spaces per day which suits my hand writing better. If you would like to see a copy of Version 2 then let me know and I will make it more generally available.

    Steve
