Japanese paper - genkouyoushi - 原稿用紙

Here's some PDF files that you can use to print your own genkouyoushi:
  • 8.5 x 11 inch paper, landscape orientation, 20 x 20 boxes, light gray (PDF file)
  • 8.5 x 11 inch paper, landscape orientation, 20 x 20 boxes, dark gray (PDF file) - good for using under a blank sheet of paper.
  • 8.5 x 11 inch paper, landscape orientation, 20 x 20 boxes, photo blue (PDF file) - these lines shouldn't reproduce on a photocopier
  • If there's a different combination of paper size, box size, etc, you would like, send me a note and I'll generate a PDF file for you. Here's the original Postscript source, with customization instructions for different paper and box sizes. I don't know how to contact the original author. Download this only if you know how to print Postscript.
