One of the biggest challenges in creating cute digital planners is coming up with an idea for binder rings. They aren't required, of course. Blotter style planners are cool, and there are a lot of planners that have more of a bound book look. No rings necessary.
But just as with paper planners, a lot of folks are lured in by the rings, coils or discs that hold their memories together.
Some user made rings are in the sharing files in the Digital Planning Facebook group. These are for personal use.
If you like the look of rings in a binder, such as the ones used in the pictures at the top of the page, Tam Spires has made her rings available for purchase, including an unlimited commercial license, for $20. You can also use the 20% off coupon at the right of this page. I think this is a special price, which is subject to change. The rings are different from the ones shown above, but similar. The center strip is missing, but it is not really necessary as that gets covered up with the pages. The ones she has available are in several different colors including gold, silver, rose gold, pink, blue, purple, blue and red. You can purchase these at Spires Media.
In search of the perfect planner rings, I have purchased all of these, and I made a few rings of my own in Photoshop, but they weren't ME. One of the joys of design is incorporating your own personality into what you design, and rings definitely add personality to a digital planner. So one rainy afternoon, I played around in Keynote and and Photoshop and finally came up with some rings (like 150 sets of them!) using basic design tools and metallic, solid and glitter background papers. What I came up with reminds me more of the Happy Planner disc system than regular rings, although they don't really look like Happy Planner rings. They do add some color and sparkle to the planner pages, and these fit my personality. (Can you have too much glitter in your life? I think not.)
