I'm making the guest book for a friends wedding.  This is a project that I have done multiple times for different friends weddings, but I always end up with the same question.  "How to make the book have lines for the guest to sign?" 

In the past I've tried multiple approaches.  I've made a book with stab binding and used lined paper on the inside.  But then you end up with a not very durable book.  I've done coptic binding and glued lined paper on each page since I couldn't come up with a way to use lined paper with paper that is folded in half.  I've also done a coptic binding and then stamped an oval on each page, with one page per guest and they just sign in there.  But that just needed a lot of explanation, and people were confused.  I've thought of drawing in the lines, but whether using a ruler or triangle, drawing straight lines are disastrous for me.

Any ideas?  Has anyone else dealt with this problem?  Thanks!

Can't you print the lines on the paper you're going to use?
