Paper Sizes & Envelopes Sizes – Easy Guide

Paper Sizes – Easy reference guide

Check out this handy guide to paper sizes.

We have a handy guide for exact paper size measurements to help you to get your sizes just right.

Getting the size right can help to keep costs down – we’ll always advise if theres a more economical size you can use that doesn’t effect your finished piece of art.

Taking into account additional areas like spines, flaps on folders and cartons can make a huge difference to print prices if you can get 2 up on a sheet.

If you have a question on the best sizes then give us a call – we have over 25 years experience in print and will be able to explain your options and any cost implications before you finalise designs.
