How to print and use planner dividers

You don’t need much to make your own planner dividers:
- Cardstock or paper
- Stick on divider tabs
- Hole punch to match your planner or binder. I use this inexpensive hole punch – it works well for one sheet of card stock or 3-5 printer pages.
- Scissors or paper trimmer, if you’re scaling the pages down for a planner system like Happy Planner
- Your free printable (lower down in the post – look for the row of purple arrows)
I prefer to print planner pages on premium, bright white paper. Feathering and bleed through are the worst when you’re writing in your planner. However, I usually print divider pages on a heavyweight cardstock. Either will work, depending on how gently you treat your planner. The premium paper has a smoother finish and is nicer for coloring, but the cardstock holds up to use better.

- LIGHTWEIGHT CARDSTOCK: This is 90 lb. INDEX cardstock, which is measured differently than COVER cardstock. For a weight comparison, it’s heavier...

Since these are coloring page divider pages, you may also want to grab your favorite pens, markers, or pencils. I frequently write about my favorite coloring supplies, so I won’t go into great detail here. (Stop by this post about the best gel pens for coloring if you want to know more!)
I will mention a new favorite coloring tool – multicolored pencils. They are perfect for adding depth and interest to ocean scenes . You can see a glimpse of them in action in this picture of the mermaid crown printable craft shown below:
I used these multicolored pencils on the mermaid’s hair and shell. These pencils would also look great on these ocean themed monthly dividers.

Stick on tabs are a quick and easy way to add tabs to these printables. I may start making printable divider tabs in the future. Please leave a comment and let me know if that’s something you’d like to see!
- Mark pages with no interference; the narrow body of the page tab fits perfectly within margins of books, notebooks and documents
- Easily view underneath the clear index tabs body as you bookmark chapters, separate important documents, highlight notes and more
- Stick securely to any page or document; the durable and repositionable tab is strong enough to turn a page, but removes easily for quick and clean...
How to print letter sized PDF printables for disc bound planners
It’s easy to scale PDF planner printers to find your MAMBI Happy Planner, Erin Condren planner, or whatever planner you prefer to use.
There are two ways to do this: You can set up a custom page size for printing or scale to print. We’re not going into custom page sizes in this post because it’s a little more complicated. Scaling your printout is much easier.
For my Happy Planner Classic, I usually just print at 82%, trim the pages with my trusted page trimmer, then punch holes with a Happy Planner hole punch. The preview below shows pages from the matching free printable ocean themed calendar pages.
To scale your page for printing this, type 82 in the “scale” box on your print dialogue box popup, as shown below:
You can print other planner size pages from US letter sized PDFs, too. I created the chart below to show you many popular planner sizes and what percentage to scale when printing from US letter. I recommend running a test page or two before printing off the whole planner.
