When I was in China I bought some writing books for practicing Chinese handwriting. This is good but have 2 disadvantages.

  1. Size of cell is too big for brush and too small for roller pen. Must be for some fat marker.
  2. Characters themselves are not the ones I am learning and interested in.

So my solution is — Web service — Chinese Characters sheets generator.

  • You choose your favorite font (some nice classics).
  • Select size - roller, marker, brush.
  • Type in characters to learn.
  • Press 'process' - you get PDF page with cells and first cell has your character with pinyin.

My question is: are there any such tools so I do not have to reinvent bicycle?
