Graph paper is a great tool for illustrating, and so I’ve created a large collection of assorted types of free printable graph paper for kids, teachers, parents and artists. Click on any of the graph paper sheets below to open up the pdf version of the document, and save it to your computer. Most of these pages will fit unscaled onto an 8.5 x 11 letter sheet of paper. The squares are a quarter inch in width and height. The resolution of these pages has no loss of quality, since the pdfs are based off of vector illustrations made in Adobe Illustrator. (Theoretically you could print each of these out on a billboard without any pixelation.)
Each graph paper sheet comes in 4 colors: Black, green, red, and blue. The first row of graphing sheets is straight forward graph paper, which extends to the bleed of the letter sized sheet. The graphs of the second row measure 8 inches by 10 inches. This type of paper is known as quad paper, since the thicker lines divide the sheet into larger squares. The third row provides four colors of x y coordinate paper, like the kind you use in school for homework. The forth row is another format of quad paper, made up of 6 x 6 1.5″ squares. Additional grids are available on the following page.
