A non-conventional method of obtaining few-layer graphene (FLG) is suggested, which comprisesrepeatedly rubbing bulkgraphite against semiconductingand insulating substrates. The obtained graphene/graphite structures consisting of rubbed-off layers behave like a semiconducting material with through-thickness anisotropy of carrier mobility reaching to 3000 cm2/V sec at the surface. The structure surfacedemonstrates more ordered and oriented character containing FLG. The suggested method allows easily obtaining graphene with pencil directly on paper, as well as graphene-based electronic components and circuits on paper and other substrates, which could enable flexible and cheap electronics. The observed phenomenon is universal, does not depend on the substrate materialand could find a widespread application.
