Our weekly calendar is our most popular calendar and comes in two formats:
X47 weekly calendars are spread over two insert booklets. The first half of the year is contained in the first insert booklet and the second half of the year in the second.
So that you always have an overview of the entire year, a yearly overview for the current year has been placed at the front of the booklet and an overview for the next year at the back of the booklet.
Most customers prefer to have two half-year calendar booklets in their personal organizer at all times. This way, they always have the information from the entire year with them. However, if preferred, you can also keep just one half-year calendar booklet in your organizer. In May 2017 the new calendars for the following year 2018 are available. Therefore at the end of June 2017 you can, if desired, remove the old booklet containing the last six months and insert a new booklet at the end containing the first six months of 2018.
This way, you can already plan from June 2017 to June2018.
We also have customers who prefer not to plan so far in advance. For these customers it is enough just to have one half-year calendar booklet in their personal organizer. With this method, you can plan from January to the end of June . The last two weeks of June are repeated in the second half-year calendar booklet.
Every booklet has two outer covers. This makes it possible for you to decide which color you prefer according to which color leather you have chosen. For example, if you have a brown leather organizer, perhaps you prefer a white insert cover instead of black. If so, you can simply remove the black cover.
Covers in a wide range of colors are also available for your booklet. We let you choose which color you prefer so that it fits best with your style. You can order your color cover in our shop or at a store location.
Color covers are made especially for you and are cut and attached by hand. Therefore, if you have your own special paper that you want to use - we can use that for your cover too!
The monthly calendar is often combined with a weekly or daily calendar.
With this combination, the monthly calendar gives you an overview, helps you with your long-term planning and can also be used as a documentation of your experiences, activities and achievements. The weekly or daily calendar can be used as a detailed planner for your activities, providing an overview of your short-term plans and tasks.
Some appointments can be entered twice, once in your monthly calendar and once in your daily or weekly calendar, for example. This helps to keep you in the best order.
The weekly calendar provides you with an overview of the most important tasks and appointments of the week. However, as sometimes this space is too small to add lengthy notes and information in an organized way, some customers prefer to have a notebook or data register in addition to their weekly calendar.
The following supplement booklets are available:
Notes can be numbered or supplied with a date at the top of the page. This allows you to make references to your notes in your weekly calendar itself.
The data register (numbered 1-12) is similar to an address register – however instead of letters, along the right side are the numbers 1-12. A data register is an ideal place to gather and organize your ideas or projects according to theme.
The production of our X47 insert booklets is much more intensive than the production of inserts for standard ring notebooks. We produce our own booklets, which go through several stages of production. For ring notebook inserts production is quite simple: paper is printed, holes are made and the paper is cut.
In contrast, X47 insert booklets are first printed, then folded, stitched, cut and indexed.
For printing, a large sheet of paper is printed with 16 insert pages. This sheet is then folded and put together with three other folded sheets in a special machine to be stitched together with a black and white cover.
When folding, the highest precision is taken to make sure every page is properly folded. If the machine is not properly adjusted, the boarders of the pages will not be correctly set and the pages will not fit in the booklet perfectly. An error like that would be immediately recognizable. Precise folding is very important and can only be done by a very few number of printing shops.
When the insert booklets are finished, we insert the stainless steel, spring-loaded insert rods by hand in Germany.
Our weekly calendar provides you with each week spread over two pages; beginning with Monday and ending with Sunday. We have made our weekly calendar to be a functional source of proper time management. On the top half of the page, you can write in your appointments and meetings and on the bottom half of the page, you can make notes for all of your tasks and activities.
The idea behind this format is quite simple: Appointments are not the only things that define your day. Your day's tasks and activities that do not have a specific time appointment also have to get done. Our motto is, "Make note not only of your appointments and meetings but also of your important activities for the day." This helps keep your time perfectly managed.
At the end of a booklet there are two weeks that are repeated in the next insert booklet. You will find areas at the end of the booklet that are marked with a gray bar. This is to remind you that a new booklet is beginning. If you see a gray bar, you can immediately start using a new booklet.
The first weekly calendar booklet always begins in early December. This is because new customers tend to look for a personal organizer at the end of the year around November and want to start using it right away. Therefore it makes sense to start the calendar in December.
We produce our weekly calendar in six languages.
Therefore a special handling was required to incorporate all of the different languages. On one page you will find the first four languages
The first four languages
Two additional languages: Dutch and Spanish
And on the next page you will find that the last two languages have been changed. This makes it possible to include all six languages in our weekly calendars.
Although it may be a compromise, we hope that it is one that works for everyone. On the one hand every customer can find his/her language and on the other hand we can keep the calendar international and available in these different countries.
It is our belief that customers will be able to quickly and easily find exactly what they are looking for in our weekly calendar and that after a few days of using it, will not even need to read headings to find which day of the week is where.
The bottom half of the weekly calendar is provided so that you have a place for making notes, and writing in tasks and activities for the week.
For organizing these notes, tasks and activities, there are three columns to the left of the lined area. Here you can rate and prioritize your entries according to importance. We leave the exact details up to you as to how you want to rate your entries. Below is an example of how you could use the three columns to rate your tasks and activities.
Rating of tasks and activities by
Another meaningful rating is a rating based on emotions; for example, whether the task or activity is a pleasant one or not. A good, old time management and general life principle states: "Complete one of your less pleasant tasks each day, preferably at the beginning of the day." That ensures you do not get behind and sets your mind free from thinking about the unpleasant tasks.
We limit holiday listings in the weekly calendar to the most important ones. The name of the holiday can be found in the upper heading and below the day's date, you will see where the holiday is celebrated - the name of the country is abbreviated. This makes it clear when and where the holiday is celebrated.
By using the upper heading to list holidays, we have found a way to list the complete name of the holiday and thereby leaving the lower area free and uncluttered.
The week number for each calendar week is provided at the top right-hand side of the left page.
Calendar Week Number
The first hour listed in the weekly calendar is 9:00 a.m. If you have an appointment before this time, you can simply enter it in the two lines provided above this space.

The layout of the weekly calendar "Classic" is the same, regardless of the size of calendar or organizer.
The smaller-sized calendars in classic however do have fewer lines in comparison to the larger sizes. This means that our smallest size calendars have 9 lines, medium size calendars have 12 lines and our largest size calendars have 14 lines.
In addition, the large weekly calendar also has a time listing from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The two smaller calendars have a time listing from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The layout of our weekly calendar "Horizontal" is the same for all calendar sizes.
For each day, seven lines are provided for tasks and activities. Additionally, a block of space for notes or drawings is also provided.
The seven lines that are available each day could be used for the 7x7 method. The 7x7 method is a new time management method that helps you to concentrate on essentials, pay attention to your own long-term goals and build meaningful, productive habits. The method adds to the pragmatic elements of time management by implementing a strategic daily activity and three daily training tasks. The strategic activity helps you to follow through with important long-term changes. The daily training tasks help make sure that you can change your way of doing things.
Also in the Horizontal weekly calendar you will find that at the end of a booklet there are two weeks that are repeated in the next insert booklet. Here you will find an area to the right of the page that is marked with a gray bar. This is to remind you that a new booklet is beginning. If you see a gray bar, you can immediately start using a new booklet.
Like in the Classic weekly calendar, the first Horizontal weekly calendar booklet begins in early December. This is because new customers tend to look for a personal organizer at the end of the year around November and want to start using it right away. Therefore it makes sense to start the calendar in December.
Our Horizontal weekly calendar is also produced in six languages.
Therefore a special handling was required to incorporate all of the different languages. On one page you will find the first four languages.

And on the next page you will find the last two languages.

Every day of the week has seven lines available. These lines can be used in multiple ways according to your needs. In the 7x7 System, these lines would be used to rate, list and mark off tasks and activities, but you can of course use them in the way you see best.
As in our Classic weekly calendar, we limit holiday listings in the Horizontal weekly calendar to the most important ones. The name of the holiday can be found in the upper heading and below the day's date, you will see where the holiday is celebrated - the name of the country is abbreviated. This makes it clear when and where the holiday is celebrated.
The week number for each calendar week is provided at the top right-hand side of the left page.

A symbol of a moon is provided when there is a full moon or new moon. The symbol is located above the date.
