My kingdom for a dot ruled notebook

Sample grid paper

For some time now I've been keeping my eyes open for a source of relatively cheap A4 dot ruled pads in Melbourne for general design and wireframing.

Behance offer a nice hardcover ring bound dot pad, but at $15 plus postage it's a little expensive for daily use. I also quite like the Rhodia dot pads (around $10), available locally, but in my (admittedly anecdotal experience) a bit hard to find in a pinch.

While searching I also came across a variety of nice printable paper options, including Ben Martineau's nice Grids For Sketching set and the big archive at Printable Paper. I couldn't find quite the setup I was looking for, so I made my own, and figured I might as well share it.

There are a PDF, 5mm dot ruled grid in A3. To print to A3 or smaller make sure that scaling is set to 100% in your print dialog (even for A3 or the page will scale to make room for for the paper feed).

After using this for a while, I found it was been easier to keep an A3 PDF of the grid which can be used to print to A3, A4, A5 etc. with 100% page scaling. I've updated the link above to the new sheet.
