Advent 2018 through Epiphany 2019 (Dec. 2, 2018-March 5, 2019) daily planner PDF will be available on Friday, November 30th. Be sure to subscribe and you will get an email the moment they are ready.
This year, we are offering the option of smaller planners, the first of which is Advent through Epiphany. On January 7th we will have Lent through Pentecost available as a PDF, and as a small bound version. The remaining part of the year C will follow after that. This will give everyone the choice between a large year-long daily planner and several smaller seasonal daily planners. More to come as development on the seasonal daily planners continues.
We had a hard, complicated, joyful year with our personal lives and with the company which forced us to chose between producing a planner that did not meet our expectations and taking the time to design a planner that we would love (knowing we would miss our production deadline) and releasing it as a digital copy. It was a hard choice but we will be releasing the PDF Thursday.
It is our plan to continue to offer (physical and digital), liturgical year and academic year planners every year, several months before each planner starts, along with many other new resources we have in development.
The Sacred Ordinary Days Advent 2018 through Epiphany 2019 daily planner is a 3-season edition that runs from Advent on December 2nd, 2018 to March 5, 2019 just before Lent begins, in line with the Christian seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany.

The finished page size is 7.5" X 8.5".
