Desk Diaries

Are you ready to move on from 2022 and look forward to 2023? What better way than purchasing your 2023 diary and to begin to fill it with appointments, work trips, and vacations. In today’s age, we are more and more reliant on computers for organizational purposes, but the desk diary still stands as one of the easiest and most convenient ways to keep track of your personal schedule.

Additionally, writing your schedule into a desk diary is a great way to keep your sensitive information protected from spyware or cyber-attacks. Keep meetings with prospective new partners or meetings about those talks private and unsusceptible to cyber-attacks.

When looking for a new desk diary there are a few things to consider before making your purchase. What type of diary do you need? What material should it be made of? What type of information will you need to track in your 2021 diary? All great questions to ask yourself before making your purchase. Let us deep a deeper dive into these questions below.

1. What Kind of Desk Diary Do I Need?

There are three main types of desk diaries. First, you have the original desk diary. Additionally, you have an academic diary and an executive diary. Then we also have a refill to add into your existing desk diary. Here is a quick description of each type for you to consider.

  • Desk Diary: Desk diaries usually are A4 or A5 size. Inside you will find either one or two pages per day broken down by the hour. Ideal for people who work in a busy office or even to keep around the house to write down family commitments like football practices, dentist appointments, and student-teacher conferences. Also, the desk diary could be used in hospitality to write down dinner reservations or bookings at a bed and breakfast. Desk diary prices range from cheaper models under €8 to more deluxe models pricing around €170.

  • Academic Diary: Academic diaries also come in A4 or A5 sizes and are ideal for teachers and students alike. The main difference between an academic diary and a desk diary is their formats. An academic diary will often focus on weekly view for writing down assignment deadlines and meetings with teachers or professors and students. Also, an academic diary may often span July to July, rather than January to December that a desk diary does. These diaries do have daily view formats as well. Prices for academic diaries seem to be a bit cheaper from under €5 to around €20.

  • Executive Diary: Executive diaries are often leather-bound and will have gold metallic accents and golden edge paper. Quite often a pen holder and a built-in zipper compartment to store sensitive documents. The executive diary favours a week to view appointment format with designated 30-minute timeslots. There is also a separate evening section for business dinners, or charity events and other public engagement activities an executive might be required to attend. The executive diary is designed to be replenished with diary refills from year to year. Prices range from €30 to €45.

  • Diary Refills: If your desk diary or executive diary is designed to be refilled each year, then you will need to purchase a 2021 diary refill. Refills are available in weekly or daily view. Read the descriptions carefully before purchase to ensure you choose the same size and format as your previous year’s diary.

2. What Options of Format and Size Are Available for a New 2023 Diary?

Before purchasing your new 2021 diary, you will want to consider what kind of format you want your diary to be in, and what size. Here is a breakdown of all format and size options available.

  • Two Pages Per Day: Two pages per day diaries are thicker and have two pages to cover one day. Usually broken down into 15-minute intervals, there may be other sections for taking additional notes or a separate evening calendar. Spans from January to December, or for the academic diary, July to July.

  • One Day Per Page: One page devoted to each day usually with 30-minute intervals. This is the most common format for diaries.

  • Week to View: A common format for executive and academic diaries with a bigger scope. Still breaks down to 30-minute or one-hour intervals and may also include a 12-month view section.

  • A4: 210 x 297 mm

  • A5: 148 X 210 mm

  • Executive Sizes: Executive diaries tend to be a little larger than their desk and academic diary counterparts. Part of this is due to additional features and the other part is due to most executive diaries are designed to be refillable year to year.

3. What Are the Best Brands to Consider for a New Desk Diary?

When it comes to desk, academic and executive diaries, three brands are the most trusted and sought after. Those brands would be Collins, 5 Star, and Letts.

  • Collins: Collins has been making diaries and notebooks since 1819. Established in Scotland, Collins diaries are now sold globally and have a 200-year old reputation of providing quality products with a rich authenticity.

  • 5 Star: 5 Star has been around for years and they are not limited to desk diaries. 5 Star also is a heavy hitter in the general school supplies market.

  • Letts: Letts of London is another established reputable brand that has been around since 1796. Not only does Letts have a reputation of a quality product, but they also have been the diary of choice by some of history’s most influential figures. Like Queen Victoria for example!
