What are the differences between the Daily and Weekly Simplified Planners?
Our Daily Signature Simplified Planner includes one day per page + shared weekend pages, hourly schedule from 6am to 9pm, four notes pages, gold wire-o binding, measures 7 x 9 inches. Our Weekly Signature Simplified Planner includes one week per two-page-spread, 27 notes pages in the back, lay-flat book binding, measures 6 x 8 inches. Both editions feature the following: thick, 80lb., pure white NEW paper; full month views; colorful stickers; redesigned insert booklet; a new full-color insert card with your planner pattern on one side and the story of the design on the other; and monthly Simplicity Tips.
Does the Weekly Simplified 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.
When will I receive my Simplified Planner Coaching?
With your Simplified Planner purchase, you'll also get access to our Simplified Planner Coaching Video Library with 12 videos from Emily (accessible with your EmilyLey.com account login)! Emily will share tips, tricks, and insight to help you get the most out of your Simplified Planner. Need help with access? Send us an email at email@example.com and we'll help you out. * Please note, Simplified Planner Coaching is specific ONLY to planners (including Signature Simplified Planners and Dapperdesk planners) purchased at EmilyLey.com.
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 a luxurious 80lb. pure white paper in all of our planners. It is thick, has a beautifully smooth texture, and is the perfect shade of white. We consider it the perfect planner paper. :)
Does the Simplified Planner have blank notes pages inside?
Yes! Our Weekly & Daily Simplified Planners and our Dapperdesk planners all now have notes pages! Hooray! Check each product description for more details as the amount they have varies by product.
What type of paper do you use in your planners?
We searched high and low for the best paper in the world for The Simplified Planner — the perfect thickness, the perfect color, and the most luxurious quality in the world. We're proud to use a brand new, 80lb. pure white paper in all of our 2022-2023 Simplified Planners.
The product I want is sold out. Do you restock?
We DO restock products with the exception of the Simplified Planners, Dapperdesk Planners, and pouches. Predicting inventory is one of the hardest parts of our jobs, but because we run a debt-free company (proudly!), we do not restock dated products after a sell out. Sign up for emails to receive important updates, sales, and freebies!
Do you have any discount codes available?
We do offer occasional discount codes, so be sure to join our email newsletter list and follow us @EmilyLey and @SimplifiedPlanner on Facebook and Instagram to receive updates on any current promotions. We cannot guarantee the authenticity of any discount codes or promotions mentioned by third-party websites and reserve the right to honor only codes that are generated by us. To be the first to know about sales (and receive exclusive discounts!) join our newsletter community at emilyley.co/signmeup.

Refer A Friend
How do I sign up for the Refer-A-Friend program?
Go to www.emilyley.com and follow these instructions:
- Click on Give $15, Get $15 on the left-hand side (or click here)
- Follow the prompts to enter email addresses for friends and family (or click "Other" to share on Facebook, Share via SMS, or to grab your custom link and share on Twitter or DM it to anyone you like!)
That should do it! If you have questions, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be glad to help you out!
Is there a minimum purchase amount?
Yes, you must have at least $50 in your cart in order to redeem your points.
Can I use a Refer-A-Friend reward and another promotional discount code?
Unfortunately. no. Rewards cannot be combined with other discount codes in a single order, as the system will only accept one code per order.
Do my points expire?
Nope! They do not! You can use them whenever you're ready to redeem.
Can I still get free shipping if I use my rewards 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.
Is there a limit on how many rewards I can earn?
Advocates may not earn more than 30 Rewards in 30 days or more than 1000 Rewards in total.
Advocates may earn only one (1) Reward per Friend, regardless of the number of purchases that his or her Friends make.
I referred someone but the system rejected the referral. Why is this?
As a safeguard against fraudulent referrals (and to ensure we are able to continue to offer the program to our community), the Refer-A-Friend program has built-in features to detect fradulent referrals. For isntance, an Advocate (referrer) cannot refer him or herself to earn a Reward. If you believe your referral rejection is an error, please reach out to us at email@example.com and we'll be happy to investigate futher!

Shipping & returns
When will my order ship?
Orders typically ship in 2-3 business days unless otherwise noted. HOWEVER, during Launch Days, Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend, and other sale time orders can take 3-4 weeks to ship because we are handling a high volume of orders. Once a package leaves our shop, we are unable to control how it is handled by the carrier. Should your order arrive damaged, please contact us immediately so that we can do our best to resolve the issue. Please verify your shipping address is correct at checkout (through our shop AND through PayPal if you choose to checkout with their services) before submitting your order. We are not responsible for orders shipped to incorrectly submitted addresses. Customers are responsible for paying any reshipping charges associated with a package if an incorrect shipping address is entered at checkout.
Can I make a change to my order?
Our shipping partners are very fast and orders are processed immediately once they are received. We are unable to make any changes to order details (name, address, products, combining orders, cancellations, etc.) once an order is submitted through our shop. Please verify your shipping address at checkout before submitting your order.
Do you ship internationally?
YES! We do ship internationally via UPS. 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: Duties and taxes for international orders can be paid at checkout with almost all available shipping options; however, customers who select USPS Int'l PO BOXES ONLY will be responsible for paying duties, taxes and other charges prior to delivery, as these cannot be paid during checkout. 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.
Can I return or exchange my order?
We currently do not accept returns. If your order arrived damaged, please send us an email at Hello@EmilyLey.com within 7 days of receiving your order. We will happily send you a replacement item! Any orders that are returned to our warehouse will not receive credit for original shipping charges. 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.
Do you accept phone case returns?
Because our phone cases are custom and made to order, we are not able to accept returns on these. If your phone case arrived damaged, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help you out!
I received an email that my label had been created, but the tracking isn't 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 estimated delivery date, please send us a note at Hello@EmilyLey.com and we will help you out!
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:

Sustainability & Ethics
Are your products recyclable?
Yes! All of the paper in our products is recyclable, along with any cardboard backers or paper covers. To recycle our planners, pop off the gold corners and remove any gold coils on the daily editions. Planner covers can be recycled, as can planner boxes (just remove the ribbon pull from the box and the ribbon from the weekly edition first!).
What efforts is Simplified making to support sustainability?
Great question! We are proud to partner with a manufacturer who is committed to responsible manufacturing, recycling, and reducing dependence on traditional power sources and water. They also have installed pollution controlled devices on all web- and sheet-fed presses, and on lamination and perfect binder equipment. They have programs and support staff in place to ensure compliance with legal expectations such as VOC control, wastewater management, and control of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.
Is the factory safe and do they support fair wages and quality labor standards?
Yes! It has always been of utmost importance to us to partner with a manufacturer who aligns with our vision in terms of safe working conditions, respectable and inclusive work environments, and fair wages / pay equity. They adhere unwaveringly to the International Labour Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at work for all employees, hourly and salary.
