Hello

as one who's not really happy about the graph paper I'm buying in the store (no distinction between the 10 line and the 5 one), I made my own.
For me it's helpful to add some checklists. In the upper right there are the outside pictures checkboxes (street pics, then around the house).
There are two versions, 13x10 and 9x7.
Once I'm buying a 17x11 clipboard, I'll add the larger format.
In case anyone finds this useful:

I made something similar a few years back from an online program that lets you design your own.

Very nice. The lines can be seen very clearly. Do you print it in color?

High tech -

I was having a problem with the available legal sized clipboards disintegrating when they got wet, so I removed the clip from one, cut out a clipboard on my band saw, gave it a couple of coats of varnish and attached the clip to it. Works great - I haven't had to replace it, and it looks more professional than the fiberboard type. Now I'll have to graduate to Tevas rather than flip flops.

Good point about the clipboard. Maybe I can do the same (looking for a bigger board, so that I can have a larger sketch)

I used marine plywood - it's got two "A" sides, made with marine glue, and looks better than your A/C stuff from Home Despot.

That one prints up nice in black and white. The lines come out lighter than mine, which I scanned from a pre printed page years ago, and attach here.
But I think I'll switch to yours. :beer:
