INDEX Create a Digital Planner Template Kit
In this tutorial series, we will be creating a template kit with various paper design templates for a planner to be used in GoodNotesTM. The templates will be based on an 8.5 x 11 inches paper size and an 8 point or pixel grid design system. As with most templates, these templates will have simple layouts with placeholders for text and design elements. You will use these templates as a starting point for your planner paper designs, such as a to do list, note paper, journal pages, wedding plans, recipes and more.

The default GoodNotes letter size is 612 x 792 pixels at 72 dpi. As is customary when using an 8 point or pixel grid design system, we will be using a 72 dpi resolution for our templates. However, keep in mind that the iPad has a resolution of 264 dpi and it is customary to use a 300 dpi for printing. So, you might want to increase the dpi of your final paper designs. But, one reason for using the 8 point or pixel grid design system for our templates is that scaling your final designs for the specifications for each project should be easy.

Our first step will be to learn how this 8 pt grid design system works.
