Of manufactured lined/dot/graph papers, I use dot grids more than anything else, mostly Rhodia Dot pads and Fabriano EcoQua notebooks. But I like my own dot-grid paper even more. Not a huge fan of lined paper, I'm a bigger fan of the lined sheets from my own templates, which I print on 32 lb HP Premium Choice.
In tinkering with different variables in Photoshop I stumbled on beige as a dot/line color. The beige dots or lines are plainly there before I write on them, but they're less obtrusive than blue and gray, the colors I see the most often on the market. And then beige seems to disappear once written upon, which I also like. And so I made several beige-based templates—dot grid, college rule, wide rule, college and wide rule notebook paper with beige left-margin lines, and landscape and portrait orientations for the lined templates. Highly recommended.
