Online graph paper

Writing about web page http://www.incompetech.com/graphpaper/

Click for graph paper PDF generatorThis is a clever and potentially useful idea – a web site where you can create PDF files of your preferred style of graph paper. Now if you happen to live near a stationers which stocks a wide range of graph paper then this might not be so appealing to you – buying graph paper is always going to be cheaper than printing pages on a laser printer.

But if you don’t have ready access to supplies, or you want something out of the ordinary, then this might be what you need; you can specify line thicknesses, colours, square size, paper size, and so on – and the range of styles goes far beyond just squares, including:-

  • Lined paper
  • Accounting and financial ledger paper
  • Graph paper
  • Asymmetric graph paper
  • Brick graph paper
  • Hexagonal graph paper
  • Axonometric diamonds
  • Tumbling block trapezoids
  • Dots
  • Cornell note-taking system paper
  • Calligraphy guideline paper

Worth bookmarking in case you ever need a page of 2mm graph paper with 1cm semi-bold and 2 cm bold, or a page of pale blue dots 2cm apart and 2mm in diameter. You never know.

Here:-
