Paper Size Chart | Paper Sizes Chart
I was doing some reading, catching up on things, when I ran across a refresher of what paper sizes are and how they have changed. I hear from our 'care team' on the phones during the day here at PlotterPaper.com that we get asked for A0 sizes and A1 sizes. Paper is our industry, yet it may not be your main daily thing - so here are some definitions and examples that we have to share:

Here are some links to his work that gives larger examples of the illistrations above:
Many paper size standards conventions have existed at different times and in different countries. Today there is one widespread international ISO standard (including A4, B3, C4, etc.) and a localized standard used in North America (including letter, legal, ledger, etc.). The paper sizes affect writing paper, stationery, cards, and some printed documents.* The standards also have related sizes for envelopes and Plotter Paper Rolls.
Here is a link to information on Paper Roll Sizes if you would like to read more
Now a note to you. I say that with a smile because that is how I feel. Leaving a note to you. Remember how to get back here to PlotterPaper.com and I will share more items from the PlotterPaper.com care team. They are some really nice people that Really Know their stuff! Not joking on that, in the least. I am just the 'identified' one that builds these hopefully working pages:) They are the ones on the phone answering questions all day that deserve the respect. Try them out when you can. I know they have surprised me.
Remember they are on EST time.
