Important Information about Poster Sizes: Read Before Ordering

Metric poster sizes are given as a guide only, it is impossible to buy metric roll paper. Posters are printed to fill the page as determined by the roll size, which gives the short edge. A2-approximation prints are from a 17 inch roll (432mm), A1-approximation prints from a 24 inch roll (610mm), A0-approximation prints from a 36 inch roll (914mm) and oversize prints from a 44 inch roll (1118mm).

In practice, this means that you will be getting a slightly larger map than the metric equivalent. Maps are of varying height-width ratios, and will be sized and trimmed to fit the greatest dimension, with a 5mm border. Please don’t buy a frame until you have received the map and know what size it will be. If this is critical, check with me first!
