Hrm.  I have a little script I downloaded for printing envelopes.
It reads a text file that describes To and From addresses, and the
config lets me set other details.  It can even print the postnet barcodes.

All it does is dump PostScript.  So perhaps a PS expert around here might
be willing to throw something similar together, for generating
arbitarily-shaped graphs on arbitrary paper sizes ;)

[La]TeX might be the way to go, too.  Either way, I'd imagine something like:

  graphpaper --paper letter --gridsize 0.5inch | lpr

I love Unix.
