My son made me a proud mama the other day when he specifically asked for grid paper so that he could practice his drawing. I have to admit I was impressed with his desire to be precise – if only he was that way about cleaning his room!
This set of printable graph papers come in inch increments at .25″, .5″, .75″, and 1″. There is also 1cm, 1.5cm and 2cm grid papers as well. There is also a 15 x 15 cell grid that is perfect to use to make your own word searches with your weekly vocabulary words.
Important Grid Paper Printing Instructions
If you require accurate grid measurements for your graph paper printouts, you must ensure that your printer is set to print at a full 100%. Some printers also default to your browser settings, so if you are having problems, check these as well.
This will likely mean that part of the page will be outside of the print area, and tell your printer to proceed anyway. Each printer is different, so I cannot give you exact instructions on how to achieve this with your particular setup. But in general, once you hit the ‘Click to Print’ button on the next page, you will have to go into your printer options to change the setting to 100%.
Most printers – and browsers – by default print pages at the setting ‘Shrink to Fit”, and this will not work.
