What does A3, A2, A1, A0 and B1 look like?

Home — TheInternetPrinter > Preparing files > Paper sizes — A4, A5, C4, DL, etc > What does A4, A3, A2, A1, A0 and B1 look like — a quick fix!

 

Below are some images and some other information of paper sizes that are A4-sized and larger.
What you will notice is that the A-series sizes are based upon the A4 sheet, and each increase in size is double the size below it. So:

  • A3 is twice the size of A4.
  • A2 is twice the size of A3, and four times the size of A4.
  • A1 is twice the size of A2, and eight times the size of A4; and
  • A0 is twice the size of A1, and sixteen times the size of A4.
     
  • B1 is not an A-series size, but we have nonetheless shown what it looks like when compared to an A4 sheet.
