As a customer, you dont normally have to worry about paper size unless it�s to choose a size of poster or on a smaller scale a size of booklet or flyer.Starting with the most commonly used size A4 (210mm x 297mm) you just double the shortest edge to take you to the next size which is A3 (420mm x 297mm) or half the longest edge to take you down to A5 (210mm x 148mm). So from A5 we go down to A6 (105mm x 148mm) and then A7 (105mm x 74mm). From A3 we go to A2 (420mm x 584mm) and then A1 (584mm x 820mm) and finally to A0 (820mm x 1168mm). There are of course other larger sizes but these are less common in everyday print and you probably wont need them, however there are commonly used smaller and different sizes such as DL (210mm x 99mm) and business card (55mm x 85mm).
