A7 - Contintental size HipsterPDA cards

Wide range of forms for all occasions - ideas copied from Doug's HipsterPDA edition but in very different style.

Outside of USA there are problems with index cards but plethora of Ax formats (also found index format slightly too big for me).

Paper size: 
Usage advice: 

Cards themselves are in A7 (portrait) and A6 (landscape) format. You can print them up to 8 (or 4) on one A4 sheet using extensive Acrobat Reader printing options.

I've also made available pack of pages a7-up8.zip . In this file each form is positioned 8 (4) times on one A4 sheet (one form per file). Due to size (3MB) I've decided to spare DIY bandwidth and uploaded it here:

A7 up-8 version (on A4 paper)

I usually print one page of choice when needed, a7.pdf version is mostly for design. Whole set was created with Scribus.

Missing files ?

I got the zip file, but the PDF's do now download. I get an error saying that the file cannot be found.

Stuff in the zip file looks great.

Working fine now--for me at least.

And many thanks also for these! Just today, I was sitting here, looking at my 3x5 hipster and A7 and wishing there were some forms made specifically for it! PagePacker (Mac-only softwrare) makes A7-sized PocketMods, but the DIYPlanner forms get shrunk too much. Your forms look like a perfect fit! I'm going to play with PP, to see what I can turn out. More fun ahead for me! ;-)



how strange, ygor...

I tested the individual pdf files linked in this article and they downloaded JUST fine on my work XP system.

Not sure what's going on...but it could be just a glitch in the system?


Must be me :)

I tried again and it works now.
Oh well.
It all looks great.

The individual files don't

The individual files don't work for me either, but the linked files are downloading as I write this.


new image comparing a 2x5 hipster to A7

Seeing as I only recently "discovered" the A7-size for hipster use, I thought others might be interested in a size comparison between it and the well-known 3x5 hipster, so I posted an image here.

As you can see, they are about the same width, but the A7 is shorter, more compact, if you will.

And again, thanks for posting these templates!


Small update

Removed some minor glitches, really tiny (like 0.3pt ;)

A7 8-up not A4

Too bad that the PDF's are not A4-sized. Acrobat has to scale them to print, so the results could very per printer.

A6 Continental Size

Great work! But as an unexperienced pc user I wonder how to create the same stuff in A6 - continental size?

I think that....

maybe the safest thing to do is to use the A4 size, and reduce to print onto A6-sized paper. The proportions of the A-sizes are consistent along every other size--evens and odds. At least, they seem to be in my experience. So, if you print A4 at A6 size, it should fit fine. The lines may be a bit close, but my experiments were perfectly acceptable for me.
