Book folding lines

Once again, book folding fans have a commenter, Diane, to thank! In the post here I talk about a way to enable people to make their own templates by printing a solid black word over a sheet of lines.  It’s all explained there, but a post with no pictures is boring, so….

Diane was very kind in her comments, but did mention she wished the lines printed a bit darker.  To be honest I tend to have photo quality printing as a default, so it might be that I overestimated how easy the lines are to see.  Looking at the above photo I can see they are fairly dark.  BUT, printing as Fast Printing on Plain Paper, I can see they are pretty light and there is clearly a difference between the OLD lined sheet and this new one I am adding for you.

I can’t see that the thicker lines will make the page count any different but it will likely make the page counting a lot easier!

Have a go.  It really does work, and you can them make your own words easily.  I was offline for a while (bad internet) right at the same time my mail server went down.  The geek boys who maintain it have duplicates of all the essential bits running concurrently…except the motherboard.  There can be only one.  What failed?  Yep. The motherboard.  So people waited and waited and waited.  It took ages for them to source the parts, build the board, install it and get the mail flowing again.  I could MAKE the templates but not mail them or upload them.  DOH!  So print a sheet or five – then next time you can try your own if I am seemingly AWOL.  Just a thought….
