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.

    This universal 9 and three fourth and 7 and a half inch black composition notebook is what we use for recording and note taking purposes. It is college ruled so the horizontal spacing is good for these objectives.

    Great notebook

    Good price for a quality composition book that's comparable to books I've purchased at mass retailers in the past. The paper is great quality, and overall I'm happy with it.

    Perfect composition book!

    The Universal UNV20940 9 3/4" x 7 1/2" Black College Ruled Composition Notebook is excellent. I know its not what they are meant for but my son loves drawing in it. I am happy with it because it keeps my sons drawings together, less paper that I have to pick up. The quality is very good and the price is reasonable.

    Perfect for my daughter for her drawings. Very good quality. Great value!

    It's always a good idea to have plenty of paper on hand for notes and such. Compostion notebook with 100 sheets. This is plenty of room for multiple notes. Nice clean look.

    These are durable and high quality notebooks with an inviting cover. The lines are dark enough to see but not overpowering and great for book keeping, records, journalism, studies or just anything in writing!

    great universal college ruled composition notebook with sturdy make

    these are pretty much the standard composition book that we're all familiar with from grade school. the covers are sturdy and the paper is solid (it's standard paper, but it's not exactly *lower* quality than any other paper). it's nice and compact and works well if you take a lot of notes

    good for note taking and list making

    The construction on these is fine, and the college ruling is perfect for fitting a lot of writing in without being too cramped. I think I prefer wirebound steno books for everyday note taking because they are better for ripping sheets of paper out.
