About the Company
Our story began in sunny Southern California, with a simple idea to create high quality, stylish planning products for the masses. 16 years later, we are now a second generation, “family” owned company, still operating in Southern California, but our offices had to get a little bigger to include the 70 employees that make up our new Blue Sky family. We have always believed that we could create a planner of exceptional quality, and that has been the foundation of our success year after year. The quality of our products has created a loyal following of over 13 million users annually, and elevated us to the #1 planner brand in the U.S. We pride ourselves on utilizing our customer feedback to develop planners our customers want to use. Because at the end of the day, we want to create beautiful, innovative products that empower our customers to manage their time, so they have the time to do more of what they love.
