Planner-preneur – LTL Print House

We are so excited to share our next “Planner-preneur” with you!  In this ongoing series, we share an inside look at people from our community that have poured all their creativity and inspiration into a “planner-related” entrepreneurial venture. This month, we are keeping it all in the family again spotlighting a new family-owned shop in our community. LTL Print House, which just launched this month on Etsy, is the creation of Lisa, Tina and Lam, three women from the same family, who decided to join forces and launch a sticker shop featuring one-of-a-kind illustrations for planning and paper crafting.  

LTL Print House

We talked with all three of these “planner-preneurs” about starting their new sticker business, their own planner journeys and how launch is going so far.  Take a listen to our chat to hear more about their goals for LTL Print House: 

THE TEAM 

To put it simply, Lisa is married to Tina’s uncle and Lam is married to Lisa’s son. Lisa works on all sticker processing, cutting and operations while Tina focuses on social media and marketing. Lam is the talented designer behind the illustrations and creative designs. Together, they make an incredible team dedicated to bringing classic and functional stickers to the community. As long-time planners, the women of LTL are very versed in what planners enjoy, want and need. Each of them has their own talent and creativity to bring to the brand and are excited for what the future holds.

THE COLLECTION 

For the first launch, LTL Print House featured about 2o original designs (created by Lam) in their shop including hand-illustrated florals, hand-lettered scripts, and muted functional boxes. They are offering custom lettered name stickers as well and plan to offer other customs in the future. The brand aesthetic is minimal and neutral with a feminine flair and palette. The stickers in the shop are a combination of white matte paper and transparent in both traditional and big sizes. The designs have a real elegant and sophisticated look.

The Haul List is here! Our ongoing series that features products we are loving, find helpful or just total must-haves. Whether it’s newly released or a well-loved community favorite – be sure to check out these goodies. 

 

The Fall season and sweater weather is totally in full swing. And, nothing says fall like a crisp denim jacket or carry all tote, right?  So what better way to accessorize than by adding some flair! Pins that is. Enamel pins have long been a go-to accessory to show your own unique sense of style and personality. Newer versions have even been designed with magnetic closures instead of the traditional pin to make them easy to add to your planner covers as well.  No harm done. Whether you switch them out or pile them up,  they are a fun way to add a pop of color to any outfit, planner or accessory.

Planner’s Guide – Choosing A Weekly Planner for 2022

Planner’s Guide – Choosing A Weekly Planner for 2022

Have you been working on your 2022 planner stack?  There have definitely been plenty of releases and cover reveals to keep you wanting all the planners.  But, when it comes to choosing the best planner for you it’s what’s on the inside that matters most. Yes, we all love the gorgeous covers and shiny new foil but the layout can really be a deal breaker when it comes to function and making your planner work for you. 

 

In this upcoming series of the Planner’s Guide, we are going to take a closer look at some of the many layout options that are currently available. This time, we are focusing on weekly layout options (vertical section, vertical columns, hourly, horizontal, custom) to help you decide which planner will work best for you in the year ahead. 

Before we dive in, let’s first consider a few important questions:

  • – Let’s start with the basics – Do I like to plan in a vertical or horizontal spread? 
  • – How many planners will I be using – Will this planner be used strictly as an overview of my week or will it be a catch all for everything?
  • – What area of my life or role does this planner serve? 
  • – Do I have a lot of appointments or like to time block – maybe a planner with hourly layouts?
  • – Is it hard for me to write in open space – should there be lines or no lines? 
  • – Are my weekends busy – or is it ok if weekends share a space? 

 

All of this and more — like size, paper quality, binding, portability — are important when choosing a planner.  Plus compound that with the distraction of shiny object syndrome or FOMO during launch season and you can later be left feeling buyer’s remorse. 

WEEKLY PLANNER LAYOUTS

There is definitely no shortage of options when it comes to weekly layouts considering most people really appreciate having that week-at-a-glance. In fact, just about every brand offers their own version of weekly planner.  Here are a few examples and recommendations to explore: 

VERTICAL SECTIONS
