When will you have more Simplified Planners?
Our 2018-19 Simplified Planners are SOLD OUT. We'll be launching our 2019 Simplified Planners on Wednesday, September 5 at 10am EDT. Be sure you're on our email list to be notified the minute they're live! Sign up at emilyley.co/signmeup
When will I receive my Simplified Planner Coaching?
All Simplified Planner purchasers will receive FREE monthly organization / planning coaching via email. Once a month (beginning about a month after you purchase your planner), for the life of your Simplified Planner (twelve months), Emily will show up in your inbox with a video, freebies, and exclusive content to help you get the most out of your Simplified Planner. Not receiving yours? Send us an email at email@example.com and we'll help you out.
* Please note, Simplified Planner Coaching is specific ONLY to planners purchased at EmilyLey.com and does not apply to Dapperdesk purchases.
Can I have my planner monogrammed?
We unfortunately ended our monogramming feature but are so excited to say we found you something even better! Our friend Hannah over at Monogram It, Darling creates the most beautiful monogram stickers in lots of choices and is ready for your order! Check out her Etsy shop for all of the gorgeous options!
Do pens bleed through the pages of the Simplified Planner?
Nope! We searched long and hard for the perfect paper for our Simplified Planners. We now use Mohawk paper (the same brand of paper Emily used as a wedding invitation designer many years ago)! It is thick, has a beautifully smooth texture, and is the perfect shade of white. We consider it the perfect planner paper. :) Check out our Ultimate Pen Test video to see how our planner paper holds up to the most popular pens on the market.
Do the Color Coding Stickers fit perfectly between the lines of the Simplified Planner?
The Color Coding dots extend beyond the lines just a bit on the Simplified Planners.
Does the Simplified Planner have blank notes pages inside?
Our Weekly Simplified Planners and Dapperdesk planners have notes pages at the very end of the planner. Our Daily Simplified Planners do not (at this time).
If I've purchased a Playbook in the past, do I have to reorder to get the printed workbook?
Yes! But we hear that if you take your e-book digital file to Staples, they'll print it for you at a reasonable price.
Are the Dapperdesk Planners dated?
Yep, they sure are! Dapperdesk is only available for the Calendar Year.
What type of refill works with your Happy Stripe and Gold Dot pens?
We have found that the Pilot Precise V5 RT Liquid Ink refills work great!
Do you have a Teacher Planner or Wedding Planner?
Good news! Our Simplified Teacher Planner (which will be a lesson / classroom planner -- not a day planner) will launch May 1, 2019 (dated Aug 2019 - Jul 2020).
Our Simplified Wedding Planner is tentatively scheduled for release Fall 2019.
Do Color Coding Stickers come inside the Sticker Book?
No. Our Color Coding Stickers are sold separately.
Does the Dapperdesk Planner lay flat when opened?
It sure does! This was very important to us when designing this planner. We have a special "lay flat" binding that allows the pages to lay perfectly flat when open.
Is there a cart minimum for my Pineapple Points to work?
Yes! To use your Pineapple Points your cart must meet the minimum $50 requirement.
Can I still get free shipping if I use Pineapple Points and it brings my total under $100?
Unfortunately, no. When we are running our free shipping promo, the final order subtotal has to be $100 or greater. If any discounts bring the subtotal below $100, we are not able to offer free shipping, as the system does not recognize that the order requirements have been met.

My package has been lost or stolen. What should I do?
If your package was marked as delivered but you have not yet received it, please take the following steps:
- Check with neighbors to see if the package was left there.
- Reach out to your local post office or UPS / FedEx facility.
Please note, once a package leaves our warehouse, we are no longer responsible for it. At that point, it is the responsibility of the carrier. All lost / stolen package claims must be handled with them directly at the links below:
Can I return or exchange my order?
All orders are non-refundable unless your items arrive damaged or we accidentally sent you the wrong item. Please contact us at Hello@EmilyLey.com within 7 days of receiving your order if an item arrived damaged or you received the wrong item, and we are happy to offer a replacement item. Please note that we are not able to refund, replace or offer shop credit for any Emily Ley or Simplified products purchased through Target, Staples, or Office Depot, as we do not carry stock of these licensed products. Customers are responsible for directing any and all questions to the applicable retailer.
I received an email saying my label was created, but my tracking has not updated?
Good news! Well, sort of. Tracking systems are notoriously unreliable. In our experience, when this happens, your order IS in fact on its way... but tracking is, for some reason, not updating. This usually happens when a carrier forgets to scan a package. If your order does not arrive by the expected delivery date, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you out.
Do you ship internationally?
YES! We do ship internationally.
International orders require extended shipping time, 6-8 weeks or longer, in some cases. Shipping times vary greatly based on your international shipping address. Please note Import duties, taxes and other charges are not included in the item price or shipping costs. These fees are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing.
How much is shipping?
Great question! During checkout, before the payment screen you will be given a shipping estimate. We do not charge handling on our orders. Our shipping rates are passed directly from our shipping partners (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL). You pay exactly what we pay them to ship your order. Please remember, shipping times are in ADDITION to handling times.
Why don't you include packing slips in your boxes?
In an effort to reduce paper waste, our shipping partner does not include paper packing slips in your order. Please refer to your order confirmation email to verify the contents of your order.

What's Emily's favorite backpack?
Emily absolutely adores her TUMI backpack!
How did Emily make the art boards that hang in her kitchen?
Emily bought the cork boards from Amazon (24 x 36 - similar to these [can’t find the actual ones purchased on Amazon anymore] https://www.amazon.com/Board-Dudes-Canvas-Bulletin-CYL43/dp/B00YNZFXEQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1508522887&sr=8-3&keywords=24+x+36+cork+board)
She used spray glue to adhere regular linen to the boards. Then sent them to Framebridge to be framed with their Mandalay frames (with no glass).
