Print Sizes – A Guide

When planning your printed marketing, you need to consider what print sizes work best. Here is a handy guide to some of the most popular print sizes:

A sizes

  • A0 – 841mm x 1189mm
  • A1 – 594mm x 841mm
  • A2 – 420mm x 594mm
  • A3 – 297mm x 420mm
  • A4 – 210mm x 297mm
  • A5 – 148mm x 210mm
  • A6 – 105mm x 148mm
  • A7 – 74mm x 105mm
  • 1/3 A4 or DL – 99mm x 210mm

Most people are probably already aware of ‘A size’ paper. These are the most widely used, and easily distinguishable paper sizes. These paper sizes are simple to understand, as they increase and decrease in successive order, with A0 being the biggest paper size and A10 the smallest.


SRA sized paper is slightly more oversized than A size paper. This is due to these sizes being mainly used for commercial printing, as it allows room for bleed, grip and trimming.


Envelopes use the C sizing to accomodate A sized sheets – so a C5 envelope will hold an A5 sheet without folding for example. By design they are slightly bigger. This marginal difference in size allows the similar A size sheet to fit inside the envelope.

  • C1 – 648 x 917 mm
  • C2 – 458 x 648 mm
  • C3 – 324 x 458 mm
  • C4 – 229 x 324 mm
  • C5 – 162 x 229 mm
  • C6 – 114 x 162 mm
  • C7 – 81 x 114 mm
  • C8 – 57 x 81 mm
  • C9 – 40 x 57 mm
  • C10 – 28 x 40 mm
