Many printed products have very specific size guidelines. For example, magazines are usually A4, standard flyers are A5 or DL, and posters are typically A3 (although they can be printed much larger).

Specialty items like comic books have their own standard sizes such as US Standard.

Here’s a list of some popular printed products and their most common sizes. In addition to these, our instant price calculator offers several other choices. You can also request custom sizing, if necessary.

Book sizes

In addition to the standard sizes described above, paperback and hardback books also have a range of less commonly used sizes. If you don’t know what size your book should be, we recommend choosing a standard A size.

If you have a certain book or booklet size you want to replicate (like a Penguin paperback) and you’re not sure about the dimensions, please read our guide on measuring.
