Erasable Dividers Frosted

They stick out on the right of the A5 pages but they are less wide than our front and back covers.

Erasable Notebooks & Planners
At the end of the video below, we show you to click pages in and out of the disc biding.
A few tips:
- To prevent damaging the pages, when removing a page: gently zip from top to bottom
- No need to pull hard
- To insert a page into your Asoki Planner: go disc by disc, lightly push
Our pens can be categorised as: (1) dry erase non-permanent fineliners, (2) wet erase non-permanent fineliners and (3) whiteboard markers.
Erasable pens from Pilot are not suitable: they are designed for traditional paper, not for whiteboard paper.
The pages are thicker and smoother than traditional paper because of a plastic layer that makes the page erasable. You can use whiteboard markers on them, but fineliners are more suitable because they are thinner, fast-drying and smudge-proof.
Which pens are smudge-proof?
You probably have wiped text from a whiteboard with your hand. The same thing can happen when you use whiteboard markers on your Asoki Planner. But not with the dry erase pens! They are smudge-proof thanks to fast drying ink. There is a balance between not accidentally erasing notes with your hand, but still being able to easily erase notes when you want to. For erasing, use the felt eraser on the back of the dry erase pen or the wipe with liquid of your choice. The dry erase pens exist in 4 colours.
Wet erase pens are a different type of non-permanent correctable fineliners. They have no felt eraser on the back. As the name suggests, they can only be erased with liquid. The ink is also sensitive to damp hands – it may smudge. Be aware of this when writing and ensure you don’t accidentally wipe with your hand over the page, then you are fine.
Here’s what other left-handed users have said:
“I’m left-handed. Have had no problems accidentally erasing anything. I do use the planner sideways because of the ring-binding, but this is very easy.”
“I rub out much less than I would with a pen. Practically nothing. Though, to be fair, sweaty hands do smudge the text a little bit – that’s why I say ‘much less’ and not ‘nothing’. The rings don’t bother me at all.”
“I’m left-handed and I don’t rub out anything. Just keep my book straight.”
“I’m on the left. Works great for me. No rubbing.”
“I’m left-handed but I didn’t experience any problems. The ink dries quickly!”
“I turn my pages a little bit. I’m left-handed and can write without rubbing out my own text thanks to this trick.”
“I am left handed and it works. If I write an entire page at once it smudges a little but you almost never do this in an agenda or notebook anyway.”
Similar, but not the same! Writing on the Asoki erasable pages feels smooth, and more similar to writing on a whiteboard than to writing on paper. However, unlike on a whiteboard, you can’t erase the ink of the dry erase pens by going over it with your hand.
Yes you can! Combine with other systems such as Atoma, Arc or Circa.
Have to change an appointment, or edit a plan? No problem! You can erase pages as often as you like. The quicker you erase after writing, the easier.
Depending on the type of pen you used, there are different ways of erasing your pages:
1. Dry erase pens
2. Wet erase pens
3. General tips at the bottom
- Dry erase pens
Black, blue, green, and red pens:
Erase small sections using the eraser on the back of the pens, or larger amounts with the spray and wipe.
If the ink has been on the page for a long time then we recommend using the textured wipe and magic sponge from the Erase Kit.
2. Wet erase pens
Orange, yellow and purple pens:
Can only be erased with a damp cloth. The ink dissolves in the liquid so there will be a coloured smudge for you to wipe away. Add more drops of liquid if needed. It is best to use these pens only for short-term notes which you erase at the end of the day. Be extra careful not to touch the ink with your hands, as unlike the dry erase pens, the wet erase pens are not smudge-proof.
3. General tips
Erase entire pages with the Asoki planner cloth and a few drops of water. Alternatively, you can use window or mirror cleaning spray, or a mixture of rubbing alcohol with water, as well as our Apple & Mint concentrated spray from the Erase Kit.
Erasing pages gets more difficult over time as the ink sets in. Try and make sure to erase pages regularly – if you want to keep your notes, scan them with your phone using apps such as Adobe Scan, Evernote or Dropbox.
After erasing, there may be spots of ink left on the pages, clean with a wet wipe. The blue and green pens may leave a light smudge on the Asoki pages.
Effortlessly scan pages with your phone with the free Adobe Scan app.
It is very easy: the app automatically finds the edges of the pages for you. You can save the file as pdf to any app on your phone such as Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox or Trello.
Step by step with photos
Adobe Scan automatically finds the edges of the pages. It can help to place the notebook on a dark background if you have a light cover.
Adjust the edges manually or click ‘Done’.
If you want to keep scanning pages, you can continue these steps. In the bottom right corner, you will see a number counting the number of pages you have scanned. This will create a pdf file with several pages.
When you are ready to save: adjust the file title and save the pdf.
After having saved it inside Adobe Scan, you can then share and save it in any app you have on your phone: Dropbox, Asana, Trello, Google Drive, Slack, email etc.
