Standard Notebook and Journal Sizes - The Master Set Compatibility

The Grid Tool Works With Almost Any Planner or Journal

Wondering which planners and notebooks The Grid Tool works with? I’ve listed all the ones I know about in the charts below.

Journal and Notebook Compatibility Charts

The Grid Tool is available in several sizes and increments. For example, the 5mm – Size A5 version’s dots are spaced apart at 5mm intervals and will match any square dot or lined grid paper with the same spacing. The 5mm – Size A5 also has 26 x 36 spaces (27 x 37 dots), and fits most standard size A5 5mm notebooks, planners, and journals.

The Grid Tool - Master Set

In general, if your notebook or planner:

  1. has plain/blank pages OR the square dot/line spacing increment (for example, 5mm) matches, AND
  2. the width of a single page is EQUAL to or LESS than The Grid Tool’s horizontal (width) measurements AND
  3. the height of a single page is EQUAL to or LESS than The Grid Tool’s vertical (height) measurements

…The Grid Tool is compatible with your journal, notebook, or planner.

Here are a couple more specific examples:

Since the Size A5 Leuchtturm1917 Medium, Dotted journal is 5.75″ x 8.25″ and each page has 28 dots printed horizontally (27 spaces) x 37 dots printed vertically (36 spaces), The Grid Tool ~ 5mm – Size A5 will allow you to measure the entire height of the dotted part of the page, and 26 (out of 27) spaces of the width, leaving you to decide if you’d like to leave a 5mm margin on either the left or right edge of the page.

However, The Grid Tool ~ 5mm – Size A5 is NOT compatible with the Piccadilly Dot Grid Essential Notebook, because, although the Piccadilly has more than enough dots vertically on each page (41), it only has 25 dots horizontally. The Grid Tool ~ 5mm – Size A5 needs at least 27 dots horizontally in order to fit.

I keep adding to these lists as I discover more. If you find any others, let me know!
