What is the A2 size for paper?

The A2 paper format is the third-largest and a very popular A paper format available, measured at 420 x 594 mm.

Paper format: A2
Dimensions in Millimeters: 420 x 594 mm
Dimensions in Centimeters: 42 x 59.4 cm
Dimensions in Inches: 16.5 x 23.4 in

When should I use A2 paper for printing?

The A2 sheet is a highly recommended format when you want to let people know of a special event your brand will be hosting such as sports or concerts. This kind of paper format also makes for an ideal choice when you are planning to get calendars printed with your company logo to serve as promotional material.

For example, our double-sided posters are available in A2 sizes and can be printed on both sides. These posters are also heavier, which means that they are made of high-quality materials. Speaking of materials, you can choose from gloss and high-gloss with the latter being coated with UV or ultra-violet protection. This will keep your poster looking great despite exposure to direct sunlight, making it an ideal material for outdoor promotions.

Aside from this, we have blue-black posters which are also available in A2 paper format that can only be printed on only one side. This ensures that the backside does not show the image on the front, unlike other poster materials.

In addition, its medium-size format makes it a great choice to place on your windows. Furthermore, its non-transparent features add an extra dimension to the quality of your poster, making your design more bold and attractive. With these, you can count on our A2 poster size materials to get the attention of your target market.

Printing resolution for A2

When printing an image of A2 size, it’s important for it to have the right resolution. By using a resolution of 420 x 594 mm at 300 ppi (pixels per inch) you will always have the best resolution for your A2 sized designs. Don’t forget to add bleed! To avoid receiving your printed products with a white border it’s essential to include a bleed of 3 mm on all sides. InDesign has a bleed tool which makes it easy to include, but in Photoshop you will have to add it manually. Not sure if you included bleed the right way?

I ordered 3 pvc banners from… Keith Chisholm 11.04.2021

I ordered 3 pvc banners from Helloprint. The proof was sent back within 2 hours. I made a couple of adjustments and after approving the final proof I received the banners 3 days later. Fantastic service and delighted with the final result.....and good value. Would not hesitate to recommend them for any printing work.
