Handwriting Paper - 2012 Set

handwriting paperThe 2012 Set has 9 rule sizes from 1 inch through 1/4 inch in 1/8 inch increments including 1 centimeter and 1/4 inch Tall.

Rule sizes, when printed, may not be exactly as described.

  • The rule lines are in shades of gray. The bottom line is the darkest and the middle line is the lightest.
  • The set has all rule sizes in both fully ruled paper and blank top paper. Additionally, the 1/4 inch rule is available in a booklet format.

The paper with the "1/4 inch Tall" rule is not symmetrical. The lowercase part of the rule is 1/8 inch, as it should be for a 1/4 rule, but the other two areas of the rule are taller. The uppercase part is 3/16 inch tall and the lowest part of the rule is 1/4 inch tall.

Vertical Handwriting Paper - with no 3rd space - Full and Blank Top

This style was requested by a school teacher many years ago. She wanted handwriting rule, but without the 3rd space. I was happy to be able to help. A Blank-Top version of this style was more recently requested. I made the files and linked them under the fully lined links in the table below; they are labeled "Blank Top."
