Our full DIY, step by step tutorial How to Make Planner Page Markers is something you should definitely check out before you leave today. It will answer any questions you have about what kind of paper to use, how to print and cut using a cutting machine and how to laminate your page markers so they will actually last. We have a short summary below for some of the more common questions we receive.
How do I download these FREE printable planner page markers?
These planner page markers come in two different file types. PDFs and transparent PNG files. The transparent PNG files are so you can load them into your Cricut or Silhouette software and convert them into SVG or STUDIO cutting machine files for cutting.
SO, make sure that you have a way to view PDFs if you aren’t cutting these out on a cutting machine! Most modern internet browsers are capable of viewing PDFs but if you are on an older computer and can’t get them to open it may be that you don’t have a PDF viewer. You can download a free PDF viewer at the Adobe website.
This printable is offered free of charge to our email subscribers. Simply leave us your name and email address at the very bottom of this page and you’ll receive a password (in your email) and a link to the printables library where these page markers can be downloaded. Email subscription is FREE!
What do I print these planner page markers on?
I use glossy white card stock that is at least 80 lb weight like THIS inexpensive option (available in various quantities) to print my page markers on. Glossy cardstock prints true to color and doesn’t absorb/wash out ink like matte papers. I don’t recommend using any kind of matte papers because they absorb a huge amount of ink and make even the most colorful print outs look faded and pixelated.
Should I laminate my planner page markers?
I highly recommend that you do. Chances are you will be moving these page markers around as you move to a new week or month in your planner. They’ll get moved around a lot and it will wear down the punch holes even if you use heavy cardstock. Laminating also protects against staining, finger prints and moisture damage.
I laminate all my planner page markers using a super inexpensive Amazon Basics Laminator and 8.5 x 11 5mil laminating pouch. Most desktop, at home laminators will melt 3 or 5 mil laminating pouches. I prefer the thicker 5mil pouches because it makes all my planner inserts or planner page markers last a lot longer under repeated use.
How do I cut out planner page markers?
The first option (and probably the easiest) is to use a Cricut Cutting Machine or a Silhouette Cutting Machine to cut out our planner page markers. We provide you with a transparent PNG file which can be used with a Cricut or Silhouette Cutting Machines software. If you want to use you cutting machine you’ll need to “import” our transparent PNG file into your cutting machine software and turn it into a “print then cut” file.
Cutting machines are not absolutely necessary. You can cut these out the old fashioned way using some inexpensive and fun tools like a flexible square punch board, straight line cutter, or good ole fashioned scissors.
Overall, our DIY page marker process is similar to our earlier tutorial on How to Make Your Own DIY Planner Covers. If you’re interested in making your own planner covers you won’t want to miss this article that includes FREE printable planner covers to play around with!

How do I resize these planner page markers?
We’re definitely Happy Planner addicts around here and these page markers are sized to fit the Happy Planner Classic size. You can resize these if you have a smaller or larger planner. You’ll need to adjust higher or lower using the print settings function on your computer. There should be a setting to adjust (by percentage) higher or lower within the print set up window. You may need to experiment a little bit but it is possible to shrink or enlarge these files easily during the printing process.
