Paper Size

Overview#

Paper Size

The ISO standard paper sizes are not commonly used in the United States and Canada.

Instead paper formats like

  • "Letter" (8.5 x 11 inches)
  • "Legal" (8.5 x 14 inches)
  • "Executive" (7 x 10 inches)
  • "Ledger/Tabloid" (11 x 17 inches)
are widely used. The "Letter", "Legal", "Tabloid", and other formats (although not by these names) are defined in the American National Standard ANSI X3.151.
