Grid paper is a squared writing paper which includes fine lines to give a same format look. This paper is same as graph paper or co-ordinates paper. If you have any confusion about that paper is the different thing and graph paper is different i.e. both are separate than it is not. Both papers are same. But if don’t know both. Then don’t worry, I will tell you about this paper and how many different formats of this paper and off course it will all about printable papers.

These papers are used for mathematics purpose,plotting 2 dimensional graphs, experimental or analysis of data, to show mathematical functions. You can also need this paper for any of above mentioned purpose. there might be chances that they are not available when you want to use them as they are not available everywhere. You need to go outside and then purchase this paper. On the contrary, These papers are easy to access you can easily download it from the internet whenever you need this paper.

## Printable Grid Paper

let’s first discuss history regarding this paper. Grid paper was first published by Dr. Buxton of England in 1794, After that H.S Hall and S.R. Knight in 1906 stated “squared lines” in an edition of “Mathematics of Algebra”. They also stated that this grid lines should be of good quality and follow the rule of one inches to tenths of inches squared box. So, this is a brief introduction.Printable paper comes in all formats as per you want you can easily access through required printable paper.Its a soft copy of papers . You can use them on your systems, PC, laptops, mobiles etc.

There is variety of these papers. I will discuss here. I’m listing all the formats below:

- 1 inch
- Centimeter
- Graphing paper PDF
- Free printable
- Online
- Isometric
- Co-ordinate
- Hex ,Grid Paper

Now, I will explain all these formats in this article. If you are not aware about these formats, today you are going to aware all about paper till the end of this article. So, let’s begin to discuss all these formats in detail.

**One Inch Grid Paper**

One inch paper is mostly used in office work or professional work. This kind of Paper is widely used as compare to other formats. another size is 8 ½ x 11. If you want to use this paper.you can download it from here. Standard graph paper can be of 1/10 inches, ¼ inches, 3/8 inches or ½ inches. All these are standard format paper. Here, I will provide you the sample of one-inch paper so that you can easily use the it without getting confused with other formats.

**Centimeter Grid Paper**

One centimeter papers are very easily available. For a beginner, he/she should start plotting on this paper.where all the squared boxes are of one centimeter each. The size of this paper is 8 ½ x 11. You can easily understand the division and can plot lines. This is most commonly used paper for mathematical purposes.

### Graphing Paper PDF

As, I discussed above that there are various kind of formats of this paper, which are required by you to store data and to do analysis, then here for that there is option of Graphing paper PDF. You can easily take any kind of format from PDF folder. There are various kinds of formats available in PDF. You can easily download or save any format as per your need.

We all know basic advantage of PDF is we can’t edit data from PDF format. So, once you opted the desired format of paper and done with storage of data you can easily save your data and then no one edit your data from PDF file. So, you can choose PDF format. if you want to safe your data so, that others can’t edit it. Just save your data and use it for analysis purpose whenever you want to analyze the data.

Once you saved the data in PDF folder it is a little bit difficult to edit it. So, save data once you are sure that you don’t want to edit it. Because for editing data in PDF paper you need to convert PDF file to other format. It will consume lots of time also. So, try to save data when you are sure that you don’t need any changes in your PDF graph.

**Free grid Paper Printable**

There are many printable formats available in free of cost. You no need to purchase any paper. You can download it for free and can use them.In this printable paper you can choose in which highlights border lines, or squared boxes etc. There are two axes in this paper: x-axis and y-axis. These are horizontal and vertical lines. You can use this printable paper which highlights these axes. This will get to know more information about line and curves which you need to draw in this paper. And the biggest advantage is that it is available in free of cost. You no need to go outside and pay money to purchase this paper. And also you can make changes in this printable format which you can’t do on normal paper or hard copy.

**Online grid paper**

Online papers are very easy to edit. You just need put your data information and you will get required paper for data plotting.

**Isometric Grid Paper**

These paper is also known as 3D paper. It comes in triangular form. It contains equilateral triangle which contains small triangles with lines of 60^{0 }. ^{ }This graph includes 6 small triangles in a format and gives a form of hexagon. Because of this it gives 3 dimensional look. This type of paper is used to plot embroidery items. You can also use these graph to draw angles. If you want to draw 3D graphs than you should choose isometric paper as it will become tough for you to plot the desired item on that 2-D paper.

**Co-ordinate Grid paper**

Co-ordinate type of paper includes two axis i.e. x-axis and y-axis. The horizontal line shows x-axis and the vertical line is denoted as y-axis. These papers are used to plot 2 dimensional data. You can interpret your data on the basis of horizontal and vertical lines and then you can find the conclusion or result out of this interpretation you have performed on this paper.

These co-ordinate papers are mostly used when you have two data and you want to find co-relation between them. That is you want to check how one data is affecting other value.you can use this paper for the reason .

**Hex-Grid Paper**

In the above discussion, I’m using the term square while discussing about this papers. But now in case of Hex type of Paper there is no square shape in this paper. It includes hexagons. This type of paper is used for mapping game boards, design tiles or to draw map for selecting paths. This kind of papers are mostly used by engineers, architectures etc. Here, I’m giving the sample of this paper which will help you to imagine about or you get to know about it .

These are some formats that I discussed in this article hope you get to know interesting knowledge about these papers. Please write your feedback about this article below in comment section. J
