B series paper sizes


We can offer B0, B1 and B2 size poster frames to special order. These B sizes are popular in Continental Europe but in the
UK they are not generally stock sizes. There is some variance between European, American and Japanese B1 size. Unless
specified otherwise we produce B size frames to suit the following poster sizes:

B2 size 500 x 700mm (50x70 cm)


B1 size 700 x 1000mm (70x100 cm)
B0 size 1000 x 1400mm (100x1400 cm)

US Paper Sizes

As with other UK suppliers, Green Magic does not stock frames to suit the standard North American paper sizes*.
Popular US sizes are:
Letter size: 8 1/2in x 11in (216 x 279mm) - Similar to A4 (but wider and shorter)
Legal size: 8 1/2in x 14in (216 x 356mm) - No ISO equivalent (similar to legacy Foolscap)
Tabloid: 11in x 17in (279 x 432mm) - Similar to A3 (but narrower and taller)
Ledger is the landscape version of Tabloid.
