A sample weekly page picture of the EZ2See® weekly Planner/Calendar.


The 2022 EZ2See® weekly Planner/Calendar is Now Available



The 2022 edition of the popular EZ2See® Products, large-print, large-space weekly planner/calendar is now in stock and available.

Many of you already get one each year. It is so popular because the highly accessible design was specifically chosen to address the needs of those with low vision or other types of challenges.


Why the design meets the needs of many with low vision is no surprise. It was designed by a creative, low vision senior dealing with RP and a long-time FFB supporter. Back in 2015, after people saw the calendar he made for himself, they urged him to start a business to make them available to help others. He has been doing that ever since.


“As someone dealing with declining eyesight, I bought weekly calendars claiming to be large-print. Yet I still had to write over the numbers with a bold marker to make them easier to see. Also, their writing space wasn’t large enough for me to write big. That frustration gave birth to this calendar.”


Here is its list of features, many not found anywhere else:

Printed on 8 1/2” x 11” pages on heavy-weight paper
Daily “cell” size is almost equal to two, 3 by 5 cards
Black page edges – no more writing off the edge of the paper
Black high-contrast fonts that are over 10 times larger than newsprint; no tiny print
Black spiral bound so it folds in half and lays flat
Runs from December 2021 through to January 2023
Four wide bold-lined pages at the end to use any way you want
About as thick as a wooden pencil
Includes twelve monthly pages with holidays and extra spaces for you to use
Covers are laminated for durability and moisture resistance


The price is, $23.99 plus shipping.
There are three ways to order and two ways to see what the calendar looks like. Visit the EZ2See website or Amazon.com.
