The stuff I use is Reynold's Parchment paper, you know, the paper that bakers use to keep their cookies from sticking to the sheet. You can get it at any supermarket. It costs about $1.95 for a roll 15" x 24'.

It'll even take the temporary glue stick so you can paste it to your blanks and cut out the parts you want...

Hope this helps!

"See-Temp" is nice to use. It is a frosty translucent plastic you can mark with a pencil, then score with a knife blade and snap out a nice pattern. More durable than paper for templates you need to use more than once.

I've seen the company's ads in R/C Report.

I'm still gonna thank Woodpile for the Parchment paper tip! I'm sure I'll have plenty of uses for that too.

Default Paper

I use gridded vellum, sold in architectural supply places. It's "tracing paper", but it's fiber-reinforced so it won't distort, and can be bought with various size grid markings on it, which will help greatly when you need to keep very long lines straight.

It's made so that the grids won't reproduce in the photocopying process, which leaves you with a clean final drawing.
