ISO paper sizes

international metric paper sizes

COMMENT: The ISO sizes are based on a ratio of height to width of 1 to 1.414. The largest size is A0 (841 × 1189mm), and all other sizes are derived from this, with in each case the longer side being half the size of that of the previous size. ISO A papers are used for printing, B papers are for posters, and the C papers for envelopes.
