Choosing the Right Size for your Print

Published by Northside Graphics • 5th August 2019

If you are interested in ordering some print work from Northside Graphics, we want to help you make sure you get the perfect print, every time. 

Sizing is important when it comes to printed marketing materials, so we’ve decided to share some information on the most popular sizes in print. This information should help you familiarise yourself with the different options and choose the best size for your print job. 

Popular Sizes

‘A’ sizes are widely used across the UK and will usually range from A0 - A7. The sizes are quite simple to remember if you understand how they are made; for example, if you fold in half (along the width) of an A4, you will get a piece of paper which measures as A5, if you fold A5 you get A6 and so on. Most businesses, including ourselves, use the sizing range below.

Irregular Sizes

You may be thinking “What do I do if the size I’m after isn’t on the table?”.

Don’t worry... print comes in a wide range of irregular sizes in many formats. We also offer square sizing and a variety of sizes when it comes to large dimensions. The table above is simply just the most popular sizes that we are asked for. If your size isn’t listed, you can get in touch for a bespoke quote for the size you would like.
