Free Graph Paper

Every so often someone comes into the library while I’m working desperately looking for a piece of graph paper for a class. When they do I now have a solution, even though we don’t keep any in stock. The following websites let you print graph paper yourself on plain paper. Just the amount and size you need.

When You Can’t Find What You Need

I hunted these up not just for those occasional desperate souls, but also because when I started designing my own cross-stitching designs all I could find in the story was 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch which would render a pattern more than twice as big as the final form of the piece I was designing. It was cumbersome and a pain to work with, but after striking out on finding a ready supply of smaller stuff close to hand I went on line and following suggestions ran across the following two websites.

Print Out Your Own Graph Paper

Under the heading of Simpler below is the pre-set 1/4 inch standard graph paper for my favorite website and a second website that just does the basic. Take your choice. Under the heading of more complex you are given options to adjust the graph paper to whatever unusual requirements you might have. Also on this website you’ll find the ability to print out college ruled paper, kids handwriting practice paper, etc.

More complex (Ignore the big red download button in the ad if it pops up, you want to click on the drawing of the paper you want)
