Blank standard and metric graph paper in various sizes; also in this form referred to as cartesian graph paper because it is rectilinear. Standard sizes are 1/4", 1/5", 1/8" and 1/10" grids . Metric sizes 10mm, 5mm, 2.5mm and 2mm grids.
Engineering format standard and metric graph paper where certain invervals on the graph paper are emphasized to create groupings of graph units. Standard sizes 1/4", 1/5", 1/8" and 1/10" grids . Metric sizes 10mm, 5mm, 2.5mm and 2mm grids. Scale may diverge slightly due to differences in printers.
Cartesian format standard and metric graph paper in various sizes, great for plotting equations, geometry problems or other similar math problems. These are full four-quandant graphs. Flashing back to 7th grade geometry class? This is the graph paper page for you. Standard sizes 1/4 inch, 1/5 inch, 1/8 inch and 1/10 inch grids .

Printable Graph Paper
This page contains free printable graph paper in both metric and customary dimensions in a several sizes. Convetional cartesian graph paper is formatted with square units of various sizes. The metric graph paper is arranged on 10mm (1 cm), 5mm, 2.5mm and 2mm dimensions. Versions of the graph paper based on customary units are measured in 1/4 inch, 1/5 inch, 1/8 inch and 1/10 inch versions (so 4, 5, 8 and 10 graph paper cells per inch, respectively). The engineering graph paper is formatted with darker lines a recurring intervals. In addition to engineering use, you may find this type of graph paper more usual for recording measurements or producing graphs where the units are grouped logically into sets.
Things to Do With Graph Paper
There are many educational activities for which you can use graph paper. The most obvious application of graph paper is for graphing, but many people also prefer graph paper for handwriting practice as the vertical cells can help encourage proper letter spacing. In a pinch, graph paper can serve as a substitute for a ruler for making measurements. Graph paper is also useful for drawing, and many architectural projects can be conceptualized or even completed with the aid of simple graph paper. Graph paper is also a great way to experiment with furniture layout in rooms, plant layout in landscape design. Many software developers also start with mockups of app designs or user interfaces by sketching them on graph paper... I know I do! You will find graph paper is also a great way to lay out patterns for craft projects like emboridery, cross stitching or other similar pattern making activities. And don't forget, long before there was MineCraft, there were tons of amazing pen and paper games all of which can be played (and often must be played) on graph paper. Dots and boxes is one such game, but there are many many others that you'll find including traditional favorites like Battleship or Connect Four.
If you are an artist, or an aspiring artist, graph paper can be a useful tool for developing your skills. Zentangling is one such art form for which graph paper is especially well suited because of its development of structured patterns. Regardles of how you learn to express yourself, you'll find that graph paper provides a useful means honing your artistic craft.
