Best Daily, Weekly, Monthly Planner Mockups
1. Notebook planner mockup
I really enjoyed working with this set of twelve layered PSD files when creating notebooks and planners for my clients.
You have 100% control over each mockup and the ability to customize it however you want.
What I really like is the amazing structuring, which gives quick access to each element you’d like to edit.
Also, you add your design via the smart object layer, SPEEDING up the process even further.
What’s also epic is the 4000 x 2850px resolution and the three ready-to-use layer styles (embossed, foil stamp, letterpress).
2. Daily A4 planner template
This is an A4 (210 x 297mm) daily planner, containing one page for you to use with Adobe InDesign.
It has EASILY editable graphs and tables with predefined page bleed, which makes it fully print-ready.
Note: It’s an Adobe InDesign template.
3. Daily lesson planner (US letter)
Because the US letter size lesson planners are QUITE popular according to my research, I’m adding the Adobe InDesign version here for you to style, customize and print.
No need to create it from scratch, rather save yourself plenty of time, while keeping professionalism to the highest degree.
Note: It’s an Adobe InDesign template.
4. Beautiful planner PSD mockup set
This is probably my favorite hardcover planner PSD mockup set with four realistic views.
Before I continue, the 5000 x 3333px dimension is also one of the reasons why I used it so much.
You can create the exact planner you want, thanks to the endless customization options. Modify the planner’s front, back, spine and inside.
What’s cool is you can play with the ready-to-use elements, like foil effects and predefined colors and materials.
You can also do your thing (which is what I opted for)!
5. Photorealistic planner PSD template
This notebook mockup covers everything with its WHOPPING collection of eleven PSDs.
I didn’t even use all of them, but the six I did, I’m really stoked about. (I will be using the rest for my future projects.)
Moreover, the 6000 x 4500px dimension (300dpi) ensures even the smallest detail appears cristal clear.
I modified the color of the notebook and elastic band and added a custom background and special cover design.
Everything went smoothly!
6. Planner & agenda 7×9″ mockup
Another beautiful set of planner mockups that I just couldn’t SKIP during my review.
I came back to these a few times, so thought it’s more than necessary to include to a list of the best ones.
While the resolution (2500 x 1800px) isn’t the greatest compared to some other PSD templates I used, each template still has many cool details worth checking out.
It’s all in the name of creating a life-like final version that’ll impress your client and their (or your) audience.
7. Minimal notebook mockup
Elegance at its finest, that’s what’s up with these minimal notebooks.
Five ready-to-go scenes are more than enough to see the LIFE-LIKE version and surprise everyone you work with.
The easily editable PSD files are a real treat for beginners and professionals.
You really need to perform only the refining touches, which take a few clicks to make happen.
I also turned the foil effect off because it didn’t go too well with the design I used.
8. Spiral planner mockup
This notebook planner mockup set is the ideal solution if you’re searching for the spiral edition.
So much good stuff in one bundle of seven PSDs!
First, you can keep or remove the protection corner, which is such GOOD detail.
Second, feel free to change the color of the cover and the paper, even the background.
Third, the four additional wooden backgrounds add a real special feel to the overall presentation. (I used them and they rock!)
Fourth, actually, I’ll keep the other stuff as a surprise 🙂 .
9. Planner mockup set
Nothing gets you moving forward quicker than a set of seven planner mockups with great quality and a realistic feel.
That’s precisely what this bundle brings to the table. And I’m so stoked I stumbled across it.
And I’m even more excited to share it with you.
You can color and design change EVERYTHING. Even binding, metallic parts and pen are editable, which makes all these templates the best.
Also, there are many previews, which will hook you immediately.
Highly recommended by me.
Note: You may also be interested in my collection of the best pen mockups.
10. Calligraphy planner/notebook/journal mockup
But if you need something that’s really NEXT LEVEL for the presentation of your planner design and content ideas, this is the one.
Four types of paper sizes in four views make a total of sixteen PSD templates.
Also, as you see from the preview, it includes all the items, which you can use to make a more engaging planner showcase.
Present your design(s) in a way that will WOW everyone because it’s so easy to do!
Best Free Planner Mockups

I spent a lot of time searching for a planner mockup that includes a hand. And then I found it – in the free segment!
