Frequently Asked Questions

What are Muryō’s dimensions?

Folded, the Muryō insert is 8 inches by 5 inches (20.32 cm by 12.7 cm). Unfolded it’s 8 inches by 10 inches (20.32 cm by 25.4 cm).

What notebooks can I use with Muryō?

The beauty of Muryō is that you don’t need a specific notebook or planner. I encourage you to use your favorite notebook. My favorite notebook is the Leuchtturm1917 Dotted A5*, but Muryō will work with any standard Moleskine or Leuchtturm A5 sized notebook. It will even work with larger notebooks, sketchbooks, and planners.

I still need to work out whether or not I should create a petite Muryō for smaller notebooks. If you’re interested in a different sized Muryō insert please contact me and let me know.

How long does Muryō last?

Each Muryō insert is designed to last for 31 days (or less for shorter months). It’s really important that you iterate on your legend and create new goals each month. Your daily habits have space for up to 31 marks too.

At the end of the month archive Muryō by taping, stapling, or gluing it into your notebook, read more on that here.

Why does Muryō pop-up on your desk?

There’s nothing better than having your Legend, Monthly Goals, and Habits front and center in your workspace. Muryō is easily dropped into your notebook so it’s portable and is available wherever you’re working. Pop up Muryō on your desk to stay focused on your goals throughout the month.

Does Muryō come from sustainable resources?

Yes! The Muryō insert is printed on 14pt uncoated cardstock that is both recyclable and attained from sustainable resources. I care deeply about the environment and global climate change so I will always be on the lookout for opportunities to substitute the insert and packaging material with recycled or sustainable material.

What does the word Muryō mean?

Muryō / 無料 is Japanese for “Free of Charge” or “Free”. Muryō is actually an aptly named pun because I will be making Muryō available to download, print and use free of charge, while “freeing” yourself to write, reference, and track everything.

Can I cancel my order at anytime?

Yes, if you’re subscribed to Muryō you can cancel anytime. Just head over to and log into My Subscriptions under My Account. From there you can cancel your subscription at anytime, no fuss, no pressure, no mess. Though I’ll be sorry to see you go.

If you’ve placed a pack or bulk order you can try to cancel your order on the My Orders page. However, please be aware that we can’t cancel orders that have been shipped. If your order is already in the mail we’ll have to chat in order for you to return your order and get a refund.

Can I get a refund?

Yes, I can definitely refund your order if there was something wrong with it, or if it didn’t show up for some reason (pretty rare circumstances).

If there’s nothing wrong with your order, but you’d still like a refund I’m open to chatting about it. However, I ask that you recognize that Muryō isn’t an Amazon sized business with unlimited funds. I created Muryō to help people, and we are a small family-owned business operating on the revenue we receive from orders.

Is there a free version of Muryō?

I hope to release Muryō under a Creative Commons license so you, your friends, and your students can benefit from Muryō even if money is tight. I need to cross the t’s and dot the i’s to make sure that the design and license are all set up correctly. If you’d like to be notified when the free downloadable version of Muryō is available please drop me a line here.
