2020 Free Printable Planner Pages
It’s that time of year again when I start thinking about making my own planner for the next year. I’m so happy that I’ve finally found a system that’s working for me and that I’ve been able to stick with (the Arc notebook system). Because it’s worked well for me, I’ve been happy to share some of my free planner pages here in the hopes that you might find them helpful too. My free printable planner pages have been quite popular the last few years, so I know some of you have indeed been putting them to good use!
Update 8/2/20: The 2021 pages are now available!

In past years I’ve usually made the pages available in four different colors. This year I’m taking a slightly different approach. Now that I’ve been offering these free printable planner pages for a few years, I’ve received many requests for different types of layouts, but rarely does anyone mention color. People ask . . . do you have full size? Do you have a Sunday start week? Do you have a monthly option? Do you have a shopping list? But nobody ever says, doggone it, I really wish you had something in yellow!! 🙂
So this year I’m reducing the color options, but adding a few more size and layout options (junior size, full size, and compact size). I’ve got a turquoise and red option (because I love those two colors together!), and a teal and navy option that’s business and guy-friendly.
I’ve also set up a new page with some of the general info about the supplies I use and how I make my own planner using a disc bound notebook. This new planner resource page also includes free printable pages that folks have asked me for over the years that are helpful in addition to the weekly and monthly calendar pages. I’ve created them in a simple gray-scale format to save on printer ink, and they include the following:
- Notes Page
- Shopping List Page
- To-Do List Page
- Meal Plan Page
- Class Assignment Page
- Copycat Arc Notebook Undated Weekly Calendar Page
You can find all those free printable pages here: DIY Planner Resource Page
If you’d like to check out my planners that are completely dated, you can visit my Etsy shop here: West Window Studio Etsy Shop.
Make Your Own Planner for 2020
Here now are the free printable planner pages for 2020. These are designed to be used with the Arc disc bound notebook system, however they could also be used in a 3-ring binder, or perhaps be adapted to some of the other disc bound systems.
Because the Arc junior size notebook is what I use, most of the pages offered here are for that size, and I will list them first. These are pdf’s designed to be printed on 8.5×11 paper, cut down the middle, and punched on the outside edges. (The punched outside edges will become the new inside edges). The small empty squares are so that you can write in the calendar dates for any particular week.
Be sure to select “actual size” or “100%” in your pdf program when printing, so that extra white space is not added around the edges.
My preference is also to print my planner pages on the thicker 32 lb paper.
Junior Vertical Planner Page Options:
Vertical Layout – Monday Start – Turquoise
Vertical Layout – Monday Start – Teal
Vertical Layout – Sunday Start – Turquoise
Vertical Layout – Sunday Start – Teal
Junior Horizontal Planner Page Options:
Horizontal Layout – Monday Start – Turquoise
Horizontal Layout – Monday Start – Teal
Horizontal Layout – Sunday Start – Turquoise
Horizontal Layout – Sunday Start – Teal
Junior Monthly Planner Page Options
Blank Month over 2 pages – Monday Start – Turquoise
Blank Month over 2 pages – Monday Start – Teal
Blank Mnth over 2 pages – Sunday Start – Turquoise
Blank Month over 2 pages – Sunday Start – Teal
12 Months of the Year – Turquoise
12 Months of the Year – Teal
(Note: These 12 month options can be printed back-to-back and used as a group, or print single and used individually. They can also be punched on either the inside or the outside edge so that you can insert them wherever you want in your planner.)
Junior Beginning Pages
Beginning pages (cover, year-at-a-glance, list of holidays) – Turquoise
Beginning pages (cover, year-at-a-glance, list of holidays) – Teal
(Note: These pages can be printed back-to-back.)
Full (Letter) Size Planner Options:
I’ve received several requests for some full size options so this year I’m adding a few of those as well. The full size (also called letter size) Arc notebooks use the complete 8.5×11 size sheet of paper without cutting it in half. (I don’t own a full size Arc notebook so in the photo above, I’ve shown how these pages can also be used in 3-ring binders.
Vertical on 1 page – Monday Start – Turquoise
Vertical on 1 page – Monday Start – Teal
Vertical on 1 page – Sunday Start – Turquoise
Vertical on 1 page – Sunday Start – Teal
Vertical on 2 pages – Monday Start – Turquoise
Vertical on 2 pages – Monday Start – Teal
Vertical on 2 pages – Sunday Start – Turquoise
Vertical on 2 pages – Sunday Start – Teal
Horizontal on 2 pages – Monday Start – Turquoise
Horizontal on 2 pages – Monday Start – Teal
Compact Size Planner Options:
Finally, there is the little Arc compact size notebook that uses just 5 discs. Once these pages are printed on 8.5×11 paper, they need to be cut into fours (down the middle both length-wise and width-wise).
Horizontal – Monday Start – Turquoise
Horizontal – Monday Start – Teal
Hopefully among all those options you’ll find something you can use! Making your own planner can be a money saver, and I’ve found it’s a pretty simple project to get it all put together when I use my favorite tools: my paper trimmer and my little portable Arc punch (this Levenger punch on Amazon should be compatible too).
Once again, you can check out my new DIY Planner Resource Page if you have questions or want to check out the additional pages that are available. And in case you had a favorite style from a previous year, the resource page also includes some of those prior styles that now have the year removed so they can be used as a perpetual option.
May you all enjoy an organized 2020 filled with homemade goodness!

Thank you so much for creating these free planner pages! I love my Arc and stopped using for awhile but back at it and your pages are perfect for me. Love the colors, styles and options! I really appreciate you sharing!
Thank you so much for creating these printables. I have not used my planner much but getting back to a routine and your files are perfect!
Thank you from Canada!
Love these designs! Thanks for sharing. Have you done any daily pages?
I’m hoping to do a daily page for 2021 🙂
I may be missing something, but I can’t figure out how to print the junior size back to back. This is exactly what I was looking for to help my soon to be middle school daughter get in the habit of writing things down and planning ahead.
Here is how I print my planner pages back-to-back on my computer printer. First, I print off a few of the planner pages just like you would print any other document. Then, I take those printed pages and put them back into the paper tray so I can print on the back of them. For my HP Printer, I have to put the pages back in the paper tray with the printed side facing up. Then I print the pages again, and now they are printed on both sides!
It may take a few attempts with your printing to know which way you have to put the printed pages back in your paper tray so that things are oriented correctly on both sides. But once you figure that out, you’ll be all set.
Thank You, This really helps
Thank you. The pages are beautiful and I look forward to downloading and printing. I am having difficulty as I click on the link and it opens the same page. It never seems to get to the free pages. I will try again.
Hello, thank you for providing this wonderful resource! I’m looking to create my own planner and I came across your site. I’ve noticed though that you hardly have printables for full-size planners, which I’m more interested in as a teacher. Is it possible you can provide the other pages available for the Junior planner in full-size please, and in purple and pink?
Good day, Where is the full size whole month planner pages?
I did not make one this year (as I was just trying a few full size options for the first time). However I will add that to the list for next year!
Greetings from Brazil!
I work with bookbinding and want to know if I can use your templates to make planners and sell.
I loved the templates, if I can’t sell no problems, I’ll make one for myself.
Hi Roseli – these planner pages are for personal use only and not for resale.
Thank you so much! It is greatly appreciated!
New here. Why does your Monday start printable appear to start on Thursday? Every one that I click on does that. Am I not doing this right? Will it print correctly?
Once you print the pages, they are cut down the middle and punched on the outside edges(so that middle cut becomes the new outside edges). So even though it looks like the pages starts with Thursday, once they are cut and punched they go in your planner correctly. I set them up this way so that there’s a larger margin on the outside of the page which is easier for most printers. Once you print them and cut them, it’s easier to see how it all comes together. I hope that helps!
Thank you so much for doing this. This will be my third year downloading your great printables.
I’m so glad you’ve found these pages helpful over the years Lynda!
Thank you for having these available!!
Is it possible to be able to make this into spiral-bound pages for this kind of planner?
I think so Jill. You would probably have to print off the pages, cut them in half (if you are using the junior size), and get them all arranged as you would like them, and then bring them to someplace like Office Max or Staples and ask them to spiral bind them for you. I believe when you do that you can choose cardboard covers for the front & back too. So it might cost a little bit extra to do that, but I think it would be a way for you to have a finished spiral bound planner using these pages.
Hello, I enjoyed your post and love the pages. Doggone it….I sure wish it came in purple!! 🙂
Haha! Hopefully I didn’t plant the seed of everyone wanting different colors now! 🙂
Thanks so much for posting this. Will make one soon. I like the option of the different sizes.
I hope one of the sizes works for your needs Kathleen!
Greetings from Canada 🇨🇦.
