inkWELL Press 2017/2018 Academic Year Planners: Your Quick Guide

We’re gearing up for the big Academic Year planner launch in less than two weeks! This is such a busy time for us… from moving to a bigger office, the mid-year planner launch and the kids getting ready to be out for summer…. We’ve got our hands full!

I’m giving you the rundown of the inkWELL Press liveWELL Planner for the 2017/2018 Academic Year. While very similar to the IWP 2017 Regular Year planner, we did make upgrades and create new designs since 2016. Available at 10 am on Wednesday, May 10th – get ready for the big day!


The Rundown:


  • Our Academic Year planner is a weekly planner running from July 2017- June 2018.
  • We’ve got two layouts: the liveWELL Flex: Online only at our store – a weekly horizontal layout. And the liveWELL Classic: Exclusively in Office Depot and OfficeMax – a weekly vertical layout. Visit our collections page to see the different cover designs new to the 2017 year!
  • Many sections throughout the planners are dedicated to goal setting, daily habit tracking, focusing on priorities & more. Our planners are designed to help you feel empowered to focus on your personal priorities and goals all year long.
  • Thick paper (140 GSM Paper [equal to 100#]) that doesn’t let pen bleed through – including fountain pens – and lets you write smoothly.
  • With each planner purchase, you will be emailed our set-up video series. I don’t leave you as soon as you buy… I will walk you through getting started and finding a planning style that actually works for YOU. inkWELL Press academic planner flex layout is great for goal setting, being more productive and planning out your days, weeks and months.

    Are the classic academic planners available now at Office Depot? I see it on their site but wanted to double-check.

    April 26, 2017 at 3:33 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Patty, we’ve heard that some stores have them in stock early. I suggest calling your nearest Office Depot and checking if they are available to purchase!

    I have had two planners with inkwell. They are my favorite!! I just sadly decided to go with moleskins planner because I need a tiny planner that fits in my purse. I have a big coach purse but your amazing planners are too big! Any chance you could make a super smaller one that’s 3.5×5.5 or even 5X7?

    April 26, 2017 at 3:49 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Lesley, thanks for your comment & feedback. I really appreciate hearing your thoughts. Have you looked into our A5 Quarterlies? The size for these are much smaller (5.75 x 8.25 inches) and they’re currently on sale. We also have just the A5 inserts that are the same size, but are sold out for the 2017 year. Hope that helps and I’m so happy to hear our planners are your favorite!

  • Sharon

    Will the academic planner A5 inserts also be available on the 10th?

    April 26, 2017 at 7:49 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Sharon, we actually only have the regular year A5 Inserts (Jan.-Dec.) and we will be getting those in for 2018 later this year!

    I went to an Office Depot in Torrance, Ca and what they showed online for the Academic planner at a quantity of 3 was actually the weekly Jan – Dec planner…not the Academic planner. 🙁

    April 27, 2017 at 3:24 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Patty, I’m very sorry for the inconvenience! The Academic Planners will be available May 10th but we suggest calling your Office Depot to double check and make sure they have what you need in stock.

    Hi Claire! Thanks for your lovely comment! We had a great time shopping for the new studio and moving in… luckily it didn’t rain much that day. We’re so glad you like the podcast too. I put my best/favorite tips and strategies in each episode! 😄

    I can’t find the liveWELL flex academic planner on the website. Is it sold out?

    September 20, 2017 at 11:25 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Morgaine…. yes, the Academic Year Planners for 17-18 are sold out. We have the 2018 year planners available online at inkwellpress.com, including the new liveWELL Daily – which is undated and can be used before 2018 starts. Hope that helps!

    will the academic planner be available for 2018/19? If so when will they be available? Is there a hole punch available to add pages?

    January 18, 2018 at 11:20 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi KJ! Yes, the Academic Year liveWELL Planners will be available this spring! Look for more details when you sign up for our newsletter, on the blog and on social media. Right now, there isn’t a hole punch to add pages… but we will keep that thought in mind! Thanks for your feedback!

    Will the 2018/2019 academic planner follow the 2018 color scheme?

    January 29, 2018 at 4:49 pm

  • inkWELL Press

    Hi Nicole! Yes, the 18/19 liveWELL Planners will have the same color schemes as the 2018 year. We’re getting pretty excited about the launch this spring!
