Most people are familiar with the size of A4 paper. However larger and smaller standard sizes are less well known. This quick guide will introduce or remind you of the most frequently used sizes. Customised sizes are of course possible and we’ll be very happy to discuss your requirements with you and advise on possible options.
A sizes are the most frequently used of all paper size standards internationally. The system is metric, based on the largest size – A0 – having an area of 1 square metre. An A0 page folded in half gives us an A1 page; A1 folded becomes A2 etc. all the way to A8 that is just half the size of A7.
Due to the range of printing presses we operate, we can provide large format printing to a maximum width of 1620mm (64 inches) and a maximum length of 15 metres (590.5 inches).
