20 Poplar Hobonichi Weeks Covers to Compare Side-by-Side

Covers / Friday, May 3rd, 2019

I’ve said this before, but the Hobonichi Weeks planner size is my favorite of all the notebooks, pocket journals, and planners out there, so I am going to start my comparison posts with covers for it.

This is a round up of popular Hobonichi Techo Weeks & Mega Weeks covers; the ones talked about in all the Facebook groups. We’re going to start the list with the most expensive and then work toward the most affordable, …mostly because it seemed like a good way to organize this list as it grew into a monster.

On that note, the cost order is also determined by the maximum possible cost, so covers that have a lot of addons get ranked before ones that don’t, even if their base price is lower. Just something to keep in mind. I also hunted down all of the shipping costs to USA to see what the real total prices would be.

Whew! Okay, weird disclaimer complete. I hope this helps you compare different brands and styles, and balance them with your budgets.

Official Habonichi Techo Weeks Cover, Liberty Fabrics

Habonichi Weeks Official Covers

Price: Typically $140+

Dimensions (closed): 4.7×8.2″ / 120×208 mm
