How to print planner inserts
This planner has lovely digital watercolor clipart. To help your pages look and feel more professional, follow these two tips:
- Use a bright white, heavyweight “premium” printer paper, not whatever cheap copy paper is in the printer at work. I use HP 32# bright white paper for my printables for bright, professional looking results.
To see the 32 lb bright white paper paper in use and compare it to other papers, visit this post on the best paper for planner inserts. I tested the same floral planner printable pages on multiple different papers and cardstocks so you can see the difference and make an informed decision.
- Made in USA: HP Papers is sourced from renewable forest resources and has achieved production with 0% deforestation in North America.
- Optimized for HP technology: All HP Papers provide premium performance on HP equipment, as well as on all other printer and copier equipment. 100%...
- Heavyweight premium printing: HP Premium32 is a heavyweight (32 pounds), brighter (100 bright) and whiter (163 whiteness) paper with a super-smooth...
2. Print the planner pages at 100% size for the Happy Planner Classic and US letter sizes, unless you’re intentionally scaling them down. The artwork and functional planner boxes are positioned to fit inside standard print margins.
Many planner printables have artwork that runs all the way to the edges. It looks great on your computer, but you either have to scale the pages or set up marginless printing (if your printer can even print without a margin). These planner inserts are use-friendly and ready to print.
Programs sometimes default to scaling the Happy Planner pages up to fill the entire page. Always check before printing to make sure sure you’re printing at actual size or 100% size.
Your print dialogue box should look similar to the screenshot below (page shown is from the February planer printable set):
How to use US letter planner inserts
It’s easy to use letter sized planner pages in a three-ring binder or Happy Planner Big. Just print, hole punch, and enjoy your new printable planner pages. Please note that the boxes on the letter pages are not an exact match for the big Happy Planner box sizes.
Letter sized pages generally print easily on A4 paper, though you may want to select “scale to fit” if you are using A4 sheets.
How to print and trim Happy Planner Classic inserts
The Happy Planner insert pages are not just scaled down versions of the letter size. I am personally a Happy Planner Classic user. That’s why the Happy Planner boxes are the correct size for your HPC stickers. The printable planner stickers I share are also sized for Happy Planner Classic, so be sure to check out these free printable planner stickers.
First, print your pages. As described above, make sure to print at 100% size.
Trim your printed pages on top of the light grey dotted line. This line is exactly the right size for HPC inserts, so cut directly on the line.
A guillotine-style paper cutter is faster than a sliding paper trimmer and can allow you to cut several pages at once, if you’re careful. I don’t usually use mine because I don’t like pulling it out during the day when my three year old is home.
Next, hole punch your Happy Planner pages using your Happy Planner punch. This punch seems to go in and out of stock frequently. It was out of stock when I wanted it, then I had to wait several weeks for it to become available again. Sometimes it’s on Amazon, but sometimes it’s in stock with Michael’s at a lower price.
- Punch capacity - 3 sheets of paper or 1 sheet of cardstock
- Punch is designed to fit perfectly in The Happy Planners
- Personal customization- Now you can punch your own paper and add it to your planner
Finally, insert the pages in your planner and enjoy! I recommend using plenty of stickers. =)
Printable stickers are an easy way to make your planner fun and functional. You do not need to own a cutting machine or sticker maker to use printable stickers. Discover more about the benefits of printable stickers and how to cut stickers without a cutting machine.
How to print letter sized PDFs for other sizes
You can print letter sized pages to scale and trim them to fit other planner sizes. I’ve already done the math for you – use the planner sizing chart below as your guide:

Watch a flip through of the planner in the video below. The video shows the US letter sized pages, but the HPC pages are very similar.
The goals planner pages can help you set and achieve your weekly and daily goals. If setting and achieving goals is challenging for you, be sure to visit this post on how to set weekly goals that work.
Here’s a preview of the printable May sticker sheets. There are three sheets of HPC-sized sticker with a fun spring color palette. The washi tape printables are a 8″ long so you can cut them down to size and use them in multiple places without printing the same sheet multiple times.
