The best laid plans… British Summer Time is officially here!


Ah, summer in Britain. We love donning our sunglasses, flip flops, umbrella and wellies all at once. It’s what makes our wonderful island so… um… unique. Also, it’s very character building, yes. 

Planners at the ready everyone - now is the time for some thoroughly British summer-time pursuits: BBQs in the garden – cremated sausage anyone? Watching Wimbledon, enjoying some Pimms and brandishing a wind-break to mark out a ‘base’ on the beach.  

This summer, to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday year and our rather wonderful Life Planners, made by hand, by us, in Devon, we decided to create some brand new, ‘best of British’ cover designs. They are available now in our image library so you can choose one for both your front and back cover or mix and match! 

Our clever design team has selected some quintessential British items and recreated them with a contemporary twist, staying true to the Unique Planners by Pirongs look. 

A Union Jack has been refashioned in floral splendour using patterns drawn from some of our favourite covers. Add this to the front or back of your planner for a nod to Blighty chic. 

The ‘Always Time for Tea’ design rejoices in the nation’s favourite drink – a nice cup of tea. Perfect whatever the occasion. Featuring cute teapots and surrounded by mini fluttering Union Jacks, this pretty design is sweet and subtle. Pass the biscuits… 

Finally, our umbrella cover comes with a strong red, white and blue aesthetic. With Union Jack umbrellas ‘raining’ down the page, this design is both eye-catching and fun. It is a smart addition to any self-respecting stationery geek’s collection. So, planning chums, get creating - ooh and look out on our Facebook page for a chance to win one soon.
