I've been looking for YEARS for lined/ruled paper to make a hardback journal with. I need horizontal paper or a roll that is lined. Has ANYBODY seen anything like that? I'm at my wits end here.  Embarrassed Thanks in advance

I've had no luck, either...I finally just made a set of lines equally spaced with Microsoft Word in the size I needed, then ran the paper through the printer. The good thing about doing it that way is you can fold the pages to have a sewn-signature binding, and have a border around the lines on each of the half-pages you create.

I'm afraid that I'm no help here, but I've been trying to figure this out, too. I considered using the printer, but that would be so much printing! Plus, I had issues getting the lines on either side to match up properly. Hmm. There has to be a way! There are people who use lined paper in their journals -- perhaps asking them would be the best plan of action?

I just had an idea - For a small-sized journal, how about a rubber stamp full of lines, to fit within the margins? I've seen very small-scale versions of this in some craft stores, so there must be a bigger one out there somewhere...Or you could make one with a block of linoleum!

A few I just dug up:

Great question - I've been wondering myself as a friend wanted me to make him a lined book - but no joy from me, either - I'm planning on trying out printing pages from MS Word like calluna did.

Good luck in your quest and pleeeeeeeease come back and let us know if you discovered anything!

those stamps are a cute idea, but i can't imagine how long it would take to get a whole journal lined. there really has to be a more time efficient way.

i've been looking as well, i'll let you know if i find anything.

Sorry if this is a silly question but - If the lines are going to be in black or grey wouldnt a double sided photocopier be easier?

And if you wanted coloured lines (and were only doing a small book) you could go to one of those cheap copy-shops and have them copy it for you

I have to resurrect this topic because I finally found a solution: corrugated cardboard. Find a kind with fairly large gaps. Slap some paint on it, and lightly press onto your blank paper. I saw this on Sarah Whitmore's Soul Journaling site. It's a little rough-looking, and not as thin as the lines we're used to, but personally I really like it.
