How exactly are you supposed to improve graph paper? A grid of lines on a sheet of pressed cellulose. It doesn’t get much simpler, but Whitelines has come up with a very clever twist. Instead of printing heavy blue or grey lines on a white sheet, they print a grid of very faint darker squares on the usual white background. The result is white grid lines. Graph paper’s great stuff, but your own lines can get lost among the factory competition, a problem Whitelines solves. For extra cool factor, the paper looks totally white when scanned.

The Whitelines site is rather artsy, but their selection is excellent. Whitelines paper is available in grids and college rule, bound by glue, wire, or hard and soft covers. Basically, whatever your preferred writing pad is, they make it. The cheapest version is the glued stuff, which some online retailers (whose reputations are dubious) have pads for just over $1 apiece. Amazon stocks Whitelines paper as well, for about $3 per glued pad.

    Very cool, but they only offer it in ISO paper sizes… A4 and the like. Booo….

  2. Hmmm says:

    Looks like someone here discovered “Cool Tools”….

    I plead the fifth. 😉

    Matt, when the rest of the world uses those sizes it makes sense.
    God the USA is so backwards sometimes.

    Did someone just discover Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools site? This item and the Glove guards are both posted there in the last 3 days. If you are getting your leads from KK, it would be nice to put a “via” link at the bottom to give credit where credit is due.

    If toolmonger is going to copy articles without a credit, I’d rather just read the other site, especially when the reviewer on http://www.kk.org/cooltools/archives/003924.php has actually used the item, not just visited the website.

    Give credit where it’s due

    You all know that the Toolmonger site has had a link to Cool Tools on the front page (and every page for that matter) under “Blogs” for years now, right?

  8. Lex Dodson says:

    Fair point, gentlemen. I’ve never gotten a topic from another blog before these two, so I didn’t think to add a link to the original post. For the record, Whitelines and Glove Guards are via http://www.kk.org/cooltools/.

    Only ISO?

    Shaun is correct. The rest of the world use the ISO standard and the metric system. I believe it’s only USA, North Korea, Liberia and one or two other countries not using the metric system. ISO I don’t know about but I guess most countries use it.

    Come on. Adapt, bite the bullet and join the rest of the world.

  10. Zathrus says:

    Only the US, Liberia, and Myanmar (Burma) use anything but the Metric system for most measurements. The UK has some measurements in Imperial, but they’re disappearing pretty quickly since the younger generations are used to metric for everything.
