Free printable dot grid paper is great when you’re practising bullet journaling, or for adding pages to your ring bound planner.

How to use your free printable dot grid paper

Download your chosen PDF file from the Planner Lovers Resource Library and print at 100% onto either A4/Letter or A5 size paper. Trim the paper if required. If you print the ‘2-up on A4 or Letter’ version, simply cut the paper in half for two A5 or half letter inserts. The A5 version is best used for printing directly onto A5 size paper. Using a page from your ring-bound planner as a template, mark where the holes need to be punched. Use a one-hole punch to make the holes.

    Hi Tracey,
    I’ve spent all day looking for dot/grid/and lined paper that would be dark enough that I could see them! And finally I found them on your site! (gorgeous site by the way!) The only catch is I live in Canada, and in Canada and USA we (unfortunately) use “Letter” sized paper (8 1/2″ x 11″), and “1/2 letter (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″)”. I LOVE your website, and would love to present it at my bullet journal club next week, and was hoping that you might be able to create the dot/grid/lined paper, and put on your website for us (and other USA / Canadians!) Thanks so much (my fingers are crossed!)

      Hi Melissa, I’m really happy to hear that the dot grid paper works well for you (other than the paper size!) I totally understand that sometimes it’s tricky to print the A4 documents onto letter size paper. I’m always keen to design printables that are as useful as possible so I really welcome your feedback. I’m more than happy to create a letter/half letter version of the dot grid paper – I will let have it available as soon as I can, and let you know. I would love to know more about your bullet journal club – sounds fun!

      Hi Melissa,
      If you head to the Planner Lovers Resource Library you can now download the grid paper as Letter size documents. Each one contains 2 half letter pages so you can just trim the letter document in half.

      I hope the sizes are ok, and the printables are helpful!
