# How to create A4-sized hex paper with numbered hexes? [closed]

I'd like to draw a setting map on hex paper with numbered hexes for the purposes of hexcrawling. A google search resulted in several sources for hex papers without the numbering.

To be more explicit, I'd like to have:

• Paper size A4. If I can use some more obscure paper size with only minor distortions when I print it as A4, then that is also okay.
• Filled with hexes, up to the margins.
• The hexes are numbered in a reasonable way, so that in my (electronic) notes I can write that a city is in hex 11.15 or 4b or whatever the notation happens to be.
• Empty hex paper.
• Superimposed larger hexes would be a nice option, and would not be a problem, but are not a necessity.

My relevant computer skills are restricted to Geogebra, which is not immediately useful (AFAIK). Free software is preferable to commercial one; I can learn how to use new software, if necessary.

How can I create a hex map as desired above?

• I am voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a shopping question ("where can I get...?"). You'll probably be better off asking this question in one of our recommended forums. On the other hand, if you narrow this question down to only "how can I create numbered hex paper?" it might become answerable within site guidelines. – LegendaryDude Jan 9 '17 at 15:17
• How many hexes per page? (Pro Tip: One hex is easy! ;-)) – Hey I Can Chan Jan 9 '17 at 15:20
• I interpreted the question to allow for an answer of "make your own", and answered it below on that basis. – Jeff Zeitlin Jan 9 '17 at 15:33
• @LegendaryDude That's fair; guidelines for how to create the necessary hex paper are acceptable answers to the question as is. Does a question count as a shopping question even when no shops exist? – Thanuir Jan 9 '17 at 16:30
• By the end, this reads as a software recommendation question. Despite asking “how”, answers will be either “I recommend downloading this PDF hex paper”, or “I recommend this software/online generator to do that”. There is not much room for “how” answers that aren't product recommendations. On the plus side, this is well-specified and, with a few more easy details, would seem to be on-topic for Software Recommendations SE. – SevenSidedDie Jan 9 '17 at 16:48
