Leaflets are one of the most used and most common methods of advertising around today. Used up and down the country by marketing agencies large and small the leaflet is a go-to promotional method.
Using our bespoke leaflet ordering system we have listed the most popular paper sizes. Paper sizes from A6 through A4 leaflets including 210x210mm and DL sizes are all available for selection.
What paper size do I want?
Working out what paper sizes you need is very easy. The most common paper size is A4, this is the standard size for desktop printers and can be easily found in reams at your local supermarket. A3 is twice the size of A4 and working down, A5 is half the size of A4.
Please find below a paper size chart for your reference;
A4 – 210mm x 297mm
A5 – 148mm x 210mm
A6 – 105mm x 148mm
A7 – 74mm x 105mm
DL – 99mm x 210mm
210x210 – 210mm x 210mm
We have a dedicated Folded Leaflet section available for the best selection and bespoke ordering service.
Single or Double Sided Print
Leaflets are a great advertising medium and when done correctly can be used to great effect. With the choice of single or double sided printing you can ensure your message gets delivered exactly how you want. Single sided printing is great for door drop leaflets or hand-outs, however, if you’re struggling to get your message across with just one side why not print onto the back? With little extra cost for double sided printing getting your message across has never been easier.
Paper weights are measured in grams per square metre or “gsm”. As the paper weight increases so does the thickness of the paper. 80gsm paper is very thin and can often be found being used for NCR pads. The most common paper weight we print for leaflets is 130gsm which is our default selection. We offer a large range of paper weights all the way to 350gsm with each weight gaining thickness. For a measure, 350gsm card is often used for business cards.
We offer four types of paper for our printed leaflets that come in various weights as described above. The available types are Gloss, Silk, Uncoated and Recycled.
Gloss paper has a very shiny appearance which comes from its very smooth texture. Gloss paper is sometimes used to help increase the sharpness of photographs and text and is often used in photography for its deep colours compared to other finishes.
Silk or Satin paper sits between gloss and uncoated paper. Silk or Stain paper was made to replicate the texture and feel of real Silk or Satin paper. Silk paper is by far our most popular paper type for leaflets as it has a great finish.
Uncoated paper is ideal for writing as the paper surface is textured. With a matt finish Uncoated Paper Leaflets offer a flat finish and are ideal to be used for leaflets with reply slips.
