Reverse graph paper notebook?
May 27, 2011 2:04 PM   Subscribe

I am looking for a particular reverse graph paper notebook company I read about some time ago. The idea of the graph paper was that it was reversed out - that is, white gridlines and slightly darker blocks. The theory was it made photocopying or scanning your work easier.

I think I saw it on an illustration blog, or maybe an industrial design blog. It's bugging the hell out of me, because I appear not to have a) delicious'ed it b) tumblr'd it c) twittered it d) emailed it to my buddy. Normally something I want I'd have saved in at least ONE of those ways.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? I search and can't seem to find it. I keep coming up with free pdf graph paper or Rhodia notebooks. I don't want either of those.

I believe the company was European (Dutch? German? Other? I can't remember!) but now I'm not sure. I'm in the US, and I know the company was not here because they had no or few retailers in the US.

Help me AskMe office supply nerds, you're my only hope.

This graph paper is green-tinted, and claims that the grid lines don't reproduce on copies.

bcwinters that's the one I remember!

.se, so, Sweden. And they're available on Amazon now. Love it.

Thank you so much!

litnerd, no, that's not the stuff - but good to know as a possibility.

Looking at the comments on bcwinters's link, it looks like you can print out your own inverted graph paper here and save a few bucks.
