Lines on paper support structure for your ideas. White lines give support without distracting your eyes, and makes your writing and drawings stand out.
The background is tinted in a light grey tone which makes it less tiring for the eye than using a white paper. Dark supporting lines have the same contrast as the pen you write with and that creates a conflict in your brain. Take away the conflict and you’ve helped your brain by eliminating unnecessary distractions.
Yes! If you have a Whitelines Link notebook, you can automatically scan the paper with our Whitelines Link app (free).
It varies between products and countries. The standard for the European sized (A-format) products is 80gsm for all soft cover products (WL100-105) and 100gsm for the hard cover products (WL230-233). The standard for the U.S. sized products is 70gsm.
In general, our paper has very little bleed-through but since we have products with 70-100 gsm paper it varies between the products. You can use watercolour, calligraphy etc. on our paper and you can find examples on Whitelines Instagram account.
We have made Whitelines App as reduntant as possible to maximize user friendliness. Due to this it has some drawbacks that should be mentioned.
– If a corner code gets written on by a pen it won´t work. (The app search for light areas so the code must be clean, without any dark objects in it.)
– Light colors might disappear, especially within an area. (We are great at eliminating shadows though!)
– The paper can´t be upside down when scanning. (Turned upside down the code appears as another code and will be rejected. Whitelines Link may not be super intelligent but it´s very faithful…)
Check the following:
Whitelines was founded in 2006, but the Whitelines App was launched in 2012, so there are still products out on the market that are not compatible with the app. Keep an eye out for the Whitelines Link corner codes on the paper to make sure that the product is compatible with Whitelines free app.
The app works with all iPhones from model 4 and above, and most Android phones with Android version 5.x and above.
You can share your notes to most apps that support image and PDF files such as One note, Google Drive, Instagram etc. Simply click on the scanned file and click share as image or share as PDF.
The app is optimized for note taking and therefore has a feature of removing shadows. A larger coloured area can therefore be mistaken for being a shadow and automatically removed. Light colours that are too close to white will be removed together with the lines.
The resolution is connected to the quality of the camera on your phone. Higher camera quality result in a higher resolution of the scanned image.
Whitelines App will adjust color tone differences in the paper caused by bad light and shadows. It will also remove any background noise and present your note with a pure white background to enhance the result. Of course, all your fine details from both pens and pencils, will be entirely preserved.
The note will be adjusted sideways and in perspective to adjust images captured from an angle. This means all notes will be displayed as scanned perfectly flat and will always fill the screen.
The app supports PDF and png.

The information is only stored in your phone, and not in the app itself, so you cannot transfer information between two apps or download the app again with your old files.
The app can only be used to scan a Whitelines Link paper.
The Quick Boxes at the bottom of the Whitelines Link paper is a way to create a shortcut to one or more sharing options. If you tick a Quick Boxes with a pen, the app will find this and act upon it, either by automatically creating an e-mail with the note attached and/or send the note to the Evernote notebook and/or Dropbox folder you have selected under Settings.
At “continue” you are able to change your mind and tick or untick the boxes, no matter what has been marked or not on the paper.
Note! To be able to do this you need to have an Evernote and/or Dropbox account.
Whitelines App is created for smart phones. Tablets may work but some tablets do not have the requirements needed for the app to work.
Higher camera quality results in higher image quality. Just that simple!
Unfortunately, Evernote has some issues with their app at the moment (2017-11-15). Errors will be solved in Evernotes coming updates. If there is an error when you first set up the Evernote app, this can be solved by deleting the Evernote App, connecting Whitelines, and then reinstalling Evernote.
The notebook must first be created in the Evernote app/ account. Then you can go back into the Whitelines app and select one of your notebooks from Evernote. You might need to restart the app so you can find the notebook you just created.
