Paper Sizes

Paper Size Matters

Understanding the size of paper needed for your work will be the difference between a professional looking piece and pure awkwardness.

Our easy to use paper size guide is designed to take the confusion out of choosing the size for your printing.

A series paper is used in general printing, including stationery and publications. A0 is the basic, standard sheet and measures 841mm x 1189mm (about 1m2). Each number after that indicates that the sheet is half the size of the sheet before. So A1 will be half the size of A0, A2 is a quarter of A0 and so on.

Paper bigger than A0 keep the same proportions and a number is added to the front of the letter, for example 2A0 is twice as big as an A0 sheet. Below is a simple guide to the different paper and envelope sizes:
