International Standard Paper Size Guide


What would we all do without standard paper sizes? Well, for a start, we wouldn't have to spend time having to search the web seeking out the measurement of the paper size we are after! Here at Attitude Design we are always having to look up standard paper sizes (such as A2 or A3) as we develop artwork for printing - this took time and effort and so we developed a simple, but effective solution!

This handy guide, allows you to download these paper sizes as a PDF, print them out and pop them in your desk draw so that you have a quick reference to all the standard sizes. At last, a free paper size resource guide that isn't web based! No more hunting around!
