Frequently Asked Questions

How do I Print Double Sided?

Printing double-sided writing paper is easy with most printers that support this feature. Simply choose to make twice the number of copies for the number of pages you want, check the box to print double-sided and your printer will take care of everything else!

How Do I Import the Paper Into ProCreate?

To import the papers into ProCreate, you will first need to downloand and unzip the file. Then, simply insert the png file you want just as you would any image. See the Procreate official documentation to learn more.

Why Are Some Lines Blue and Some Lines Red?

It can sometimes be hard to see where the lines are the paper, so to make this easier the top and center lines are blue and the bottom line is red.

If the colors bother you – simply print it in grayscale! In grayscale, the top and bottom line are slightly different shades to make it easier to see which line is the top and bottom.

These papers have a couple of different names:

  • Primary Paper
  • Pensmanship Paper
  • Hand Lettering Paper
  • Cursive Writing Practice Paper
  • Kindergarten Paper
