That link gets you to a website that essentially allows you to create .pdf files of graph paper as you see fit. It has squares. It has hexes. It has octagons with squares between the "corners". It has rectangles made like bricks. Moreover, on every single one of these you can choose line color, line width, size of the square/hex/octagon/whatever, whether there are dots in the center of the square/hex/octagon/whatever, how large they are, so on and so forth. Moreover, one just enters in the numbers, and eventually they get the results. You want one inch square? You can have one inch square. You want precisely 1 1/16 inch by 1 1/16 inch? Done. You want to use the metric system? You totally can. Oh, and you can put it on any size of paper you want, up to the point of making a gigantic grid, getting it printed and laminated at a copy shop, and having a permanent gaming grid.
Basically, that is a wonderful website. I almost wish I played more games that needed grids simply because I have that thing bookmarked.
