About Us

Over the years, we’ve helped millions of people get organised and achieve more. We’ve learnt a few things along the way too. Like what makes a great product, why customer service matters, and how customers' needs are continually changing. Thinking ahead is our speciality, after all.

What we do

At Penstripe we know that modern life is busier than ever before. We also know that through effective planning and organisation, you can achieve more of what you need to do and therefore more of what you want to do.

Building on our decades of experience in producing planners, diaries and books, we understand what it takes to create high quality products that fuse beauty and functionality. We enable you to make the most of your time, your budget and the impression you make.
