The first number (starting from the left) is the width of the roll (how far from one end to the other) the size of your banner, copy, equipment or project would determine what sizes there you could or should use. U can see it is usually 18, 24,30,36 ect. This was just a random copy/paste list from sales this week.
The second number from the left (in the left colum) identifies the length of the roll, which would determine how much paper you had to get the job done. The single digit that is next from left to right is the amount of rolls in one unit (one box or carton).
