Graph pads in metric, imperial and quadrille rulings
A4 Graph Pads
The most common size of graph pads that we supply are the A4 size 50 sheet pads. These are bought by companies that hand draw things such as bathroom layouts, flooring and fitted bedroom plans.
Chartwell are the brand that we stock and they are printed in a variety of different rulings. The main ruling is 1, 5 & 10mm, however we also have 2, 10 & 20mm or 1/10″, 1/2″ & 1″ imperial rulings. The standard student graph pads are made with 70gsm quality paper and are punched 4 holes for easy filing. The pages are printed to just one side and have plain margins to write headers or scales. Printed in a transparent blue ink, the graph will not show up on most photocopiers or scanners.
We also stock a designers pad which is made from 85gsm cream paper with the rulings in grey print. These graph pads are not punched and have 50 sheets per pad. The standard scaling on the designers graph pad is 1, 5 and 10mm.
A3 Graph Pads
A3 pads are only available in the metric format 1, 5 and 10mm as standard. They are made from the same quality paper as the A4 pads, however they only have 30 sheets instead of 50. Sheets are blank on the reverse and printed in transparent blue ink, like the A4 version. They are punched 4 holes on the short edge, so they will fit in an A3 4 ring oblong ring binder.
The A2 graph pad is available by special order only. They are available in metric sizes only 1,5 and 10mm. Call our sales office for more information.
