A4 SIZE

What is the A4 size for paper?

The A4 paper is the most used paper format in the world. It is the classic sheet of paper you see being used all around you with the only exception of North America as they use different standards. The A4 poster has a measurement of 210 x 297 mm and is typically used for an extensive range of documents, magazines, letterheads, and many more. As the smallest poster size, it makes for an ideal choice for heavy visuals with minimal text.

When should I use A4 paper for printing?

The A4 poster paper is usually the best medium to let people know of your planned events as it is easy to distribute. You can carry these conveniently along with you in high-traffic areas and hand them over to people with ease. You can also give your staff members, who work at information desk areas, A4 size posters, which would come in handy for people who would ask for them.

A good example of this would be our standard posters which are available in three different kinds of paper material such as standard, colour blocking, and waterproof. As they have features that allow them to last for a long time, our A4 sheets make for the best promotional material.

We also have sticky posters which are available in A4 paper size. These are easy to apply and comes with a back with a studded and sticky surface, making it easy for you to display your poster anywhere. In fact, you can easily remove them and re-attach them somewhere else instead should the need arise. A4 paper size is also a reliable material to use if you are planning to send invitation letters as you can put an ample amount of visuals and text on it.

Printing resolution for A4

Did you know that for you to output an image properly on an A4 sheet, the image needs to be at 2480 x 3508 pixels at 300 ppi setting? This will let you and other people clearly see and read your design and texts respectively without much difficulty. On the other hand, if you are using a setting of 150 ppi, then you should go for 1240 x 1754 pixels as its the minimum resolution to ensure your image and text does not get compromised.
