Here are the top ten websites that you can visit to download free graph paper in PDF format, in any grid size or color as you’d like—for free.

Graph paper, also known as coordinate paper, squared paper, or grid paper, is a universal type of writing paper. You find them in school, at work, or even in your everyday use (the standard notebooks here in Switzerland are graph papers instead of lined paper).

Graph papers are made up of finely printed small squares, in equal sizes, and are commonly used to draw graphs, charts, and performing functions and quadratic equations (remember math class?).

And nowadays, you can even make use of them online! As affordable as the physical versions can be, you can download graph paper in PDF format for free for online use. Below are the ten best pages for you to get them.
