One of the most common ways to plan outside of a store-bought and bound planner is the bullet journal. By now you all are probably aware of bullet journaling and what it is. However, if you aren’t aware, you can read more about what bullet journaling is in our article on why you should be bullet journaling!
But what if I told you there was an alternative that incorporated the great qualities of a pre-made planner AND the creativity and customizability of a bullet journal into one?
Well, there is, and they are in the form of bullet journal printables.
What is a Bullet Journal Printable?
Printable planning pages are becoming more and more common and popular in the planning space. Essentially, a bullet journal printable is a bullet journal layout or spread that has been created in a way that you can print them off and paste them into a notebook or punch some holes in them and add them to a ring binder.
Where Can I Find Bullet Journal Printables?
Many bullet journalers create versions of their own layouts, which can be purchased or downloaded for free. Sometimes this requires a newsletter subscription.
If you are looking to avoid searching around on the web for certain bullet journalers, another great place to seek out bullet journal printables is Etsy. The Etsy platform is flooded with amazing printables and printable shops. Some of these shops may even print them out for you and mail them. Be sure to read the listing descriptions!
How Do I Print Off My Printables?
The first step in the printing of your printable is to gain access to it. A large majority of printables are purchasable. However, some can be found for free.
Once you’ve purchased and downloaded the printable to your computer you have a few options. First, you can print your download at home.
This might be the easiest option for some. Be sure you are aware of the dimensions the printable is meant to be printed in to be sure you have a high-quality print. You can also go somewhere else to print off your download. Some external options include FedEx Office, Staples, or a local print shop.
What Should I Put My Printables In?
There are several ways you can use your printables. Of the most common are to paste them into a notebook or put them into a ring binder. Here we will discuss these two options, though there are more ways to use printables such as pinning them to a corkboard, keeping them in a folder, and placing them on your desktop.
Paste Printables Into A Notebook
The first option is to glue your printable right into a notebook. This is the best option if you are looking for something similar to a normal bullet journal but simply do not have the time to create it for yourself. You can buy your favourite bullet journal notebook and glue, trim up your printable to fit, and glue it right in on the page.
Add Printables To A Binder
If you would rather not mess with glue and a hole punch is more up your alley, then perhaps you’d prefer to grab yourself a spiral-bound binder to put your printables in. Of course, you will need a hole punch the size of your binder to assist you. If you aren’t sure what spiral binder to get, check out some of these ones on Amazon.
