Cons: numbers too large, backgrounds too dark, holiday notations too large, paper too glossy
It's obvious that the designers of this planner have never used one. Here's how it should have been designed: the numbers should be placed in the corners and small enough to allow notations in the boxes; the background color of every page should be white and the numbers should be in color; the holiday notations should be in much smaller print; and the paper should be plain, not glossy, stock. As it stands now, it's completely useless.
Pros: High Quality Materials, squares perfect size if they were white
Cons: not happy with colored pages
I was not expecting each page to be a different color and that makes it difficult to read and fill in. I would prefer the pages to be white so that my notes within the squares are easy to read. I will not be using this calendar for the upcoming two years.
I really like this planner as I am older with not so great vision. However, this year you made the numbers so big there isn't much room to write in the grid. Also, the various colorings of the grids make seeing one's writing harder. Please go back to smaller date numbers and all white background.
Technicalle, yes the numbers are larger than most pocket calendars & I do realize "pocket" denotes a compact size. However, as someone who has limited dexterity, the area given for notes for each day is not that much larger than standartd pocket calendars.
