How to Print Out a 100-by-100 Grid
By Erin McManaway
Paper grids allow you to create graphs, maps and other organized charts on a printed page. Sometimes you need a grid that is a specific size, such as 100-by-100 squares. You can't customize normal graph paper to create a grid of the exact size you need. You can, however, create grids on your computer that you can print on your printer and use for your projects.
Go to the Grid Maker website (see References). You will see a form that allows you to configure your grid.
Type "100x100" in the top text box.
Type a numeric value in the Cell Size and Line Width text boxes.
Place a mark next to the "Jpeg" option.
Place a mark next to the "Show" option.
Click "Submit" to see your new graph. You can click the "Back" button to go back and change any of your settings if your graph doesn't come out the way you like.
Click the "File" option from your browser's toolbar, then select "Print" to print your 100-by-100 grid.
