Paper and book sizes

Below are some standard book sizes. We print in sections so if budget is tight it makes sense to choose a size that will fit economically on our B1 press.

B1 paper is generally bought as 720x1020mm, but our press will print up to 750x1050mm and for larger jobs requiring a lot of paper (3 tonnes is generally enough to buy from mill) this means that maximum sizes can be nudged upwards. If in doubt please contact our customer services team to discuss your project.
