    2323Now you have nearly everything you need in order to make your icon crisp. However, inkscape has prepared one another "trap" for you - if the grid is displayed it automaticaly aligns everything on it - which means your lines will be just in between two pixels (note that sometimes this might be intentional in order to easily create various effects), which in the result image will look blurry because the line would be divided into two pixels. But how to workaround that? There are multiple ways to do it:

    25  * Set the Origin X/Y to 0.5 px and draw the lines '''on''' the grid lines, or 
    26  * Disable the snapping - View > Snap and draw the lines '''inbitween''' the grid lines, or 
    27  * Leave the Origin X/Y to 0.0 px, draw the lines '''on''' the grid lines and when you are finished, '''move''' the resultant icon by '''half a pixel both in x and y direction''' 
     25 * Set the grid Origin X/Y to 0.5 px and draw the lines '''on''' the grid lines, or 
     26 * Disable the snapping - View > Snap - and draw the lines '''inbitween''' the grid lines, or 
     27 * Leave the grid Origin X/Y to 0.0 px, draw the lines '''on''' the grid lines and when you are finished, '''move''' the resultant icon by '''half a pixel both in x and y direction'''

    2929Now you know everything you need to be able to create crisp icons :-)
