Customer questions about this product

What types of ruled paper are there?
The most commonly used ruled papers include wide, college, narrow, quadrille, Gregg, and Pitman ruled. Wide, or legal, ruled paper features a larger 11/32" space between horizontal lines on a sheet. Typically, wide ruled paper is preferred by users with larger handwriting, as well as in schools with younger children. Both college, or medium, and narrow ruled paper have a smaller space between lines. College rule paper has a 9/32" space, which allows for more lines on a page, and is often preferred by users with smaller handwriting. Similarly, narrow rule paper has a 1/4" space between lines.

Quadrille ruled paper is used for graphing and drawing. It features both horizontal and vertical lines evenly space across the page, creating a sheet of same-sized squares. Gregg ruled paper has historically been used for shorthand writing. It has 11/32" space between lines, and features a single margin line down the middle of the sheet. Pitman ruled paper is also used for shorthand writing, but it has 1/2" space between lines in addition to the single margin line down the middle of the sheet.

    great book composition ruled College inch paper perfect sheets Black

    These notebooks are well constructed and have a nice clean look if you tear out the paper slowly and patiently. If you do it to fast you'll have nothing but torn paper.

    Standard composition book at a fair price.

    These are so well made that the pages are thick and don't tear out and the thin lined ruling makes this great for stories or poems or a journal that you can keep a long time!
