Tips and tricks on how to use covers and sticker

Figuring out how to actually use the covers, pages, calendars, and stickers you have purchased and downloaded for your GoodNotes planner or journal can sometimes be confusing. Below are a few tips and tricks for you to help you along. As well as a short video explaining in more detail how to go about this process. What good are all these fun, creative things if you can’t figure out how to use them?

Tip 1: Separate PDF files for covers, notes pages, calendars, and more are the easiest to use, that way you can add one page here and one page there, and pick and choose from all the pages you have purchased from different vendors.

Tip 2: I also find that if the stickers are saved as separate PNG files they are much easier to use than all on one sheet. This way you can grab just the sticker you want and you don’t have to select, crop, or remove the items you don’t want.

Tip 3: You need to save your covers, stickers, calendars, and pages to a cloud-based file folder so that you have access to them on all of your devices. This means places like iCloud, Google Docs or OneDrive.

Here in the near future, I will post a blog on separating your PDF files, png files, and cloud storage. But until then, please enjoy this short tutorial video on how to use all those beautiful products you have purchased.

5 Reasons to Switch to a Digital Planner or Journal

If you are reading this your probably wondering “Why should I switch to a digital journal or planner?” You probably love your paper journal and planner. You are probably a person who loves paper products such as journals, notecards, stickers, sticky notes and notebooks.


So why switch? Here are ten reasons to switch to a digital planner or journal, in no particular order.


  1. Ease of Access

What is the ease of access? It is the fact that no matter where you are if you are using an app like Goodnotes, or Adobe Acrobat and you have it saved to the cloud you can access it from anywhere, your phone, your computer, and your tablet.


  1. To Be Green

Digital planners help save our environment, but not using paper and pens which then end up in a landfill when we are all done with them.


  1. Express Yourself

Digital journals and planners allow you to express your creative side so easily and quickly. You can change your cover at any time, you can add stickers, draw (and erase if you decide you don’t like it).


  1. Unlimited Potential

You can carry with you unlimited journals, planners, calendars, and budget sheets at all times. You can organize your thoughts, calendar, or creative ideas any place at any time.


  1. Looking Back

You can look back at any old journal, notebook, budget, calendar at any time. What to know what you spent last year, it is at your fingertips. What to find a personal goal you had at this time last year, just look it up. Wondering what that creative idea was you never pursued, glance back.


Digital planners, notebooks, journals, budget sheets, goals, or bullet journals allow you to express yourself, organize in a way that makes sense to you, easily access old information, save the earth and plan ahead all at once.
