Diary Inserts for you to download and print for 2016

It is that time of year again, Ray and I rolled up our sleeves and sat in front of our respective computers over 400km apart and churned our way through all the files to create the 2016 range of diary inserts. A huge thank you to Ray, as he did most of them this year.


If you have a Filofax organiser, you probably have diary pages – probably ones made by Filofax. If you’re happy with those pages, great. If you’d like to try something different, read on. If you’d like to experiment or adapt a diary that is just right for your very particular needs then you’ve come to the right place.

Ray Blake of the My Life All in One Place blog and I have collaborated in an ongoing project to produce a range of diary layouts that can be downloaded, printed, punched and used. You can find them all here and they are all free.

They are offered for download and use under a Creative Commons Licence. That means you can freely use and adapt them other than commercially. You can share these templates with other people, but you must not charge for them.

You need to decide whether you just want to download prepared layout sets for the full year, or whether you want to roll up your sleeves and adapt our templates to your own needs. Some of the things you can do when you have the source files are:
  • Make and print a diary for any year - past, present or future
  • Adjust the space given to different days or other template elements
  • Add your name or other details to each page
  • Make a diary for part of a year, or for any period you want
  • Change the language of month and day name
Follow the links below to the blog posts where the files are to be found. Often there will be several in one post, but the individual files will be clearly signposted and instructions are included in the posts.

Each layout now has a 'preview' image, so you can see what the file looks like before you download the files.

Before downloading the PDF files and printing them please read the note at the foot of this post about PDF readers scaling the print output.

Mini on A4 Paper

Note: Printing Word or PDF files

When printing either the Word or the PDF files, it is essential that you set the paper size correct in the application and in any printer dialogue boxes on your PC/Mac. If you are printing on A4 paper, then you need to set the paper size to A4 not Letter or any other size.

If you don't set the paper size correctly then the files will be resized according to the paper size you have selected, despite having A4 paper loaded in the printer.

Printing PDF Files

When you print your PDF file, it prints out smaller on paper than the Word or other file it was created from.

When you print from Adobe Acrobat Reader, you will see this dialogue:



You will see that 'Print Scaling' setting is by default set to 'Shrink to Printable Area? That's the one that's shrinking your PDF when you print it.

Change the setting to 'None':


Now, when you print the PDF it will print at the right size.

  15. I have tried to print the inserts myself with no luck, therefore I am going to outsource the printing, cutting and punching. Has anyone found a printer (Staples, online) who can print, cut and drill inserts? HELP!!!!!

  16. I am positively clueless about printing, tried, failed, done. Has anyone used a commercial printer (Staples, online) to print their inserts? Someone who can print, cut, drill? HELP!!!!!

    1. Can your printer do duplex printing? (both sides automatically)? If it can you need to print in booklet mode and the pages will be printed correctly.

      This link might help
