Re: Lined Pages



The service you are looking for is called pen ruling. It is a commercial
service for mainly the legal profession - court houses etc. With the decline
in this use of ruled pages these printing houses have time available. They
can rule your paper using a variety of ink colors. The ruling machine is a
very fascinating piece of equipment to watch operate. The lines can be
partials, doubles, or different colors on the same pass.

I am not aware of anyone who is actually operating a ruling machine in the
art trade but there very well may be someone. It is a neat trade.

I would suggest a few calls to the large printing houses inquiring about pen
ruling. I am looking for a resurgence in the interest in this service
similar to the interest in letterpress as a printing process.
