Do you have to calculate paper size? Here you will find a calculator that will allow you to know the measurements of the main papers (Series A, Series B and Series C) in different units (meters, cm, mm, inches and more).
You don't have to look any further what is the size of an A4, A3, A5 or any other paper. We provide you with the dimensions of the papers that are defined in the ISO 216 standard and the DIN 476 standard in which the standard paper dimensions are specified.
A Series Paper
Below you will find a table with the main ones. measurements of all Series A papers among which you can find sizes such as DIN A4 among others:
|Size||Width x Height (mm)||Width x Height (inches)|
|4A0||1682 x 2378 mm||66.2 x 93.6 in.|
|2A0||1189 x 1682 mm||46.8 x 66.2 in.|
|A0||841 x 1189 mm||33.1 x 46.8 in.|
|A1||594 x 841 mm||23.4 x 33.1 in.|
|A2||420 x 594 mm||16.5 x 23.4 in.|
|A3||297 x 420 mm||11.7 x 16.5 in.|
|A4||210 x 297 mm||8.3 x 11.7 in.|
|A5||148 x 210 mm||5.8 x 8.3 in.|

|A9||37 x 52 mm||1.5 x 2.0 in.|
|A10||26 x 37 mm||1.0 x 1.5 in.|
As you can see, the largest paper in the A series is DIN A0. which has an area of one square meter. As we reduce its surface by half (approximately), we obtain the rest of the paper types such as DIN A1, A2, A3, A4 and so on.
Please note that the above explanation involves a rounding of the figures and that DIN A0 actually has an area of 0.999949 m (0.999949 ft).2
The DIN A4 is the traditional sheet of paper and has a size of 210 x 297 millimeters.. Below you have a table in which you can see the measurements in other units:
|Millimeters||210 x 297 mm|
|Centimeters||21 x 29.7 cm|
|Meters||0.210 x 0.297 m|
|Inches||8,268 x 11,693 in.|
Undoubtedly, this is the most widely used paper format is present in our daily lives on a constant basis. If you have a printer at home, it is sure to be powered by foils so here you can buy them at a good price.
DIN A3 is approximately twice the size of A4 (in some places it is called a double sheet) and has dimensions of 42 cm x 29,7 cm.
Except for occasional printing, A3 is not a common format in the domestic sector, although it is easily found in stationery stores with different grammages starting at 160gr/m².2 are already beginning to be considered as cardboard, which in addition to are usually available in a wide variety of colors.
Below you have a A3 size table in the most common units:
|Millimeters||297 x 420 mm|
|Centimeters||29.7 x 42 cm|
|Meters||0.297 x 0.42 m|
|Inches||11,693 x 16,535 in.|
If you want to buy papers of this size, you can do it here.
The DIN A5 paper is a format known as a pastern and has a size of 21 cm x 14.8 cm..
Its use is varied and we can find it in brochures, flyers, invitations, notepads, etc. If you want to buy this type of paper, here you can do it.
|Millimeters||148 x 210 mm|
|Centimeters||14.8 x 21 cm|
|Meters||0.148 x 0.21 m|
|Inches||5,827 x 8,268 in.|
A2 paper is too large for home use because it is too small.Its size is 59.4 cm x 42 cm.However, it is one of the first options to consider for small signage.
Precisely because they are used in signage, the options of thickness and finishes are beginning to be very varied, being able to find them with matte finish, satin finish, photographic finish, etc.
Below is a table summarizing the DIN A2 size in different units:
|Millimeters||420 x 594 mm|
|Centimeters||42 x 59.4 cm|
|Meters||0.42 x 0.594 m|
|Inches||16,535 x 23,388 in.|
And if you want, here you can find A2 papers at a very good price.
Measuring 84.1 cm x 59.4 cm, DIN A1 paper is used in signage and is also available in multiple weights and finishes, as is the case with A2.
Because of its large dimensions, it is necessary to use professional printing equipment that can handle such large paper. Here you can buy DIN A1 brackets.
As in the other cases, we also leave you with a table in which you can see the size of the A1 in different units in case it makes your work easier:
|Millimeters||594 x 841 mm|
|Centimeters||59.4 x 84.1 cm|
|Meters||0,594 x 0,841 m|
|Inches||23.388 x 33.11 in.|
We end our review of the most commonly used A Series papers with DIN A6, whose dimensions are 14.8 cm x 10.5 cm.
Due to its size, it is an ideal paper for flyers, advertisements, invitations, etc. Below you can see its measurements in more units:
|Millimeters||105 x 148 mm|
|Centimeters||10.5 x 14.8 cm|
|Meters||0.105 x 0.148 m|
|Inches||4,134 x 5,827 in.|
And here you can find DIN A6 papers at a good price.
B Series Paper
The B series of paper is also defined by ISO 216 and is less common at the domestic level than DIN A. The dimensions of Series B papers are halfway between Series A and Series B. and is often used for books, envelopes or documents such as passports. However, on an industrial level, DIN B is quite common in magazines and newspapers.
The largest format of the B series is DIN B0 with a surface area of √2 m². and has dimensions of 1.414 x 1 meter. Below you have a table with the dimensions of the rest of the supports available in the B series:
|DIN B||Width x Height (mm)||Width x Height (inches)|
|B0||1000 x 1414 mm||39.4 x 55.7 in.|

|B9||44 x 62 mm||1.7 x 2.4 in.|
|B10||31 x 44 mm||1.2 x 1.7 in.|
C Series Paper
The role of the C series is used exclusively for envelopes. Its classification is the same as in the A series, so that a C5 envelope fits an A5 size sheet and so on.
Below is a table showing all envelope sizes which are in accordance with ISO 216 of the C series:
|DIN C||Width x Height (mm)||Width x Height (inches)|
|C0||917 x 1297 mm||36.1 x 51.5 in.|
|C1||648 x 917 mm||25.5 x 36.1 in.|
|C2||458 x 648 mm||18.0 x 25.5 in.|
