Clearprint design and sketch vellum is a top quality American made drafting media with either a rectilinear, or isometric grid. The pads we sell are both printed on 1000HP vellum. This is Clearprint’s finest vellum for manual drafting, and made with 100% new cotton fiber. The 16 lb weight paper is a good medium thickness and slightly transparent so you can use it to trace (or make blueprints if you have a stash of ammonia sitting around!) Clearprint uses a solvent free transparentizing process to create an archival quality paper that won’t brown, or crumble with age.
We stock two types of graph paper pads. The regular graph pads, have a light blue ⅛” grid, with darker lines at the inch. If you don’t work with a drafting table and a parallel straight edge handy, having a grid to work from can help keep everything legible.

, you probably already knew that were fans of isometric graph paper. For those of you who are new to isometric paper - oh boy are you in for a treat. Isometric paper has grid lines arranged at 30 degree intervals. This arrangement is such that you can make a measured drawing with a 3-D like effect, without losing the ability to scale the model off the grid lines. The drawing isn’t technically in perspective, but its a whole lot more descriptive that seeing a part in plan, projection, or section.
The smooth surface of the Clearprint graph pads has just enough tooth to catch and hold nice dark lines, but erases easily and cleanly. A pad of graph paper is perfect for taking with you on site visits, or to a meeting with a client so you can hash out ideas on the go. Furthermore the pads are great for writing, and your friends and loved ones will be sure to enjoy a handwritten letter that shows off your savvy choice of drafting media, and your love for the manual arts.
Both pads are letter sized - 8 ½” by 11” and contain 50 easy to remove sheets of vellum.
