Questions & Answers

Q: Were there any features that had to be let go during the planner design process?

Initially, the planner was meant to have large weekly to-do lists, but it made the book too thick. However, there is now a mini to-do list section on each date page, providing a compromise.

Q: When will shipping begin for the planner?

In the UK, shipping takes 48 hours once the order is processed. Orders before 1:30 p.m. can be processed on the same day, and orders after 1:30 p.m. will start processing the following day.

Q: What are the plans for expanding the Ink Outside the Box brand in the future?

The dream is to create a full collection of stationery products that match the color scheme and aesthetic of the planner, but this will depend on the success of the current product.

Q: How much does the planner cost?

The planner is priced at £14, and it is considered affordable, considering its high quality and the value it provides for daily use throughout the year.

Q: Can the planner be used for non-UK/US academic seasons, such as in Australia?

While the planner focuses on the August 2019 to August 2020 academic year, it can also be used as a life planner or for academic years in other countries that fall within those months.

Q: What other products is Ink Outside the Box planning to release?

Apart from the planner, Ink Outside the Box is considering releasing a pad of to-do lists and has many other ideas for products in mind, including ones pitched in a comprehensive plan.

Q: How did the idea for Ink Outside the Box come about?

The idea for a perfect academic planner came from the creator's personal use and desire to make the ideal planner for themselves, ultimately benefiting others as well.
