Printable Paper Templates

Have you ever needed graph paper on short notice? What about to draw something in perspective—you couldn’t use standard graph paper for that? How about a mockup of a Web browser, iPhone, or iPad for a user interface sketch? Sure, you can find most such pre-printed papers at your local Pearl’s Art Supply and even some at Staples or Office Depot, if you’ve one of those nearby, if it’s not after hours when you the paper, and if you’ve got the scratch to pick up these pricey papers. Wouldn’t it be nice if you had access to free graph paper, free mockups, free blank music sheets, free lined papers, and more? Well you do: makes available for free download more than 40 such print-it-yourself templates as PDFs. As I’m sure someone will point out, the paper and ink you’ll need isn’t free, of course; only the templates are free.

    Can you find any nice fonts for using in nameplates below a photographic print?
    I’m looking for sans serif, thin to regular, simple elegance, and not too squat. That would be so helpful!
