UIS Statistics Free Online Graph Paper Downloadable and very printable, I find these PDFs extremely useful. Graph Paper Quick Picks Now set to: 8 1/2 x 11 Paper. Ruled in Inches. Now set to: A4 Paper, Ruled in Millimeters. Custom Graph Papers Need more specific stuff? Tip number one! Though I do return the correct header for a PDF, sometimes Explorer gets confused when downloading... Tip number two!
