Dot grid is the dotted pattern on paper, where the dots are on the intersections of the lines on graph or quad paper. I love this pattern, on graph paper, the lines are too prominent for me, and on ruled paper, I miss the vertical. My one little word 2016 documentation was done in a dot grid notebook. And for handlettering I also work in a dot grid notebook.
You can buy dot grid within notebooks over here, but not as loose printing paper in size A4 (which is approx. equivalent to the letter format). Hence, I quickly decided to let print some for me.
And with this printed paper I create my own faux-doris, notebooks in the size of Midori Travel Journals, e.g. to note ideas for my blog. A little while ago I did bullet journal in this notebook size before I changed to my planner. By the way, my planner also has some dot grid paper inside and this was one of the buying reasons. Somehow, I used dot grid everywhere.
This is not the 1st faux-dori I am making. Until now, I had cut the paper first and then bound the notebook. This results in an uneven und ugly cutting edge. This time I made it correct: folding the paper, tacking the paper together and cutting it afterwards. For the cutting, I fix my cutting ruler with a piece of wood and screw clamps. The final notebook has the size of approx 4 1/4 x 8 1/4 inch and I had used 8 sheets of the dot grid paper.
Due to the packing unit of the dot grid paper I own now more than I might use in the near future. And as maybe you also would like to have some loose dot grid paper, I decided to offer them in my little DaWanda-shop (this is the European equivalent Etsy): you can buy 20 sheets of A4 dot grid paper. That is enough to make 2 of such faux-doris, which I showed here. Or notebooks in A5-format.
