Here are some sample PDF page files and how they were created. Note that printer settings like “scale to fit” or “fit to page” may mess up a printed result (spacings and widths will be made either wider or narrower).

#### Music Paper

For music paper (a.k.a., staff paper or music staff paper) you can try the lines PDF generator. For “letter” sized paper I used:

- Line spacings
**12,12,12,12,53** - Margins
**72,48,60,48**

For this paper I used all point based measurements. See letter staff paper.

For “A4” sized paper:

- Line spacings
**12,12,12,12,48** - Margins
**64,48,56,48** - Paper size
**A4**

See A4 staff paper.

#### Dot Paper

For “dot” paper you can try the pattern PDF generator.

- Pattern
**dot** - Pattern offsets
**5mm,6.4mm** - Pattern size
**0.5mm**

The offsets “5mm,6.4mm” create dots that have a 52° angle (can you say Spencerian?). I changed the color to a darker green (red: 16, green: 48, blue: 16 in the color picker) also. See Spencerian dots.

If you want a specific angle for the dots to help you align your calligraphy take the tangent of the angle you want (ask Google to do it). For instance, the tangent of 55°s is 1.423. So, if you want the diagonals of the dots to be at 55°s you set the Pattern offsets to N and 1.423 x N (like 5mm, 7.115mm). 55° is a good angle for Copperplate.

#### Seyes Paper

For a paper similar to Seyes paper you can use the graph PDF generator.

- Horizontal line spacings
**2mm** - Horizontal line colors
**skyblue,skyblue,skyblue,royalblue** - Horizontal line widths
**0.2pt** - Vertical line spacings
**8mm** - Vertical line colors
**skyblue** - Vertical line widths
**0.2pt** - Margins
**2.5cm,2cm,2cm,2cm**

See sort of Seyes.

#### Graph Paper

For graph paper you can use graph PDF generator.

- Horizontal line spacings
**0.125in** - Horizontal line colors
**103010,80ff80,40c040,80ff80,206020,80ff80,40c040,80ff80** - Horizontal line widths
**1,.12,.25,.12,.5,.12,.25,.12** - Vertical line spacings
**0.125in** - Vertical line colors
**103010,80ff80,40c040,80ff80,206020,80ff80,40c040,80ff80** - Vertical line widths
**1,.12,.25,.12,.5,.12,.25,.12** - Margins
**0.6in,0.6in,0.6in,0.6in**

This produces graph paper with heavy dark green lines every inch, and lighter and narrower lines on the half, quarter, and eighth inch divisions. See green lines every eighth inch.

- Horizontal line spacings
**1mm** - Horizontal line colors
**darkred,salmon,salmon,salmon,salmon** - Horizontal line widths
**.5,.2,.2,.2,.2** - Vertical line spacings
**1mm** - Vertical line colors
**darkred,salmon,salmon,salmon,salmon** - Vertical line widths
**.5,.2,.2,.2,.2** - Margins
**2cm,2cm,2cm,2cm**

This produces graph paper with a dark red line every half centimeter, and lighter and narrower lines every millimeter. See red lines by millimeter.
