As a reminder, we give you a cheat sheets. First one presents formats of paper's sheets, second one presents types of papers for printing.
Format of the sheet – it is a standard dimensions of the sheet of the paper, commonly used in printing houses and technical drawings.
|Primary format||Support formats|
|SEQUENCE A||SEQUENCE B||SEQUENCE C|
|Symbol of the format||Dimensions of the sheet [mm]||Symbol of the format||Dimensions of the sheet [mm]||Symbol of the format||Dimensions of the sheet [mm]|
|format DL||99×210||—||—||koperta DL||110×220|
In A format, relation of shorter side to longer side causes that after folding of the sheet on half, with shorter sides to each other, it is obtained two sheets of same side's proportion as the starting sheet. Surface of A0 format is 1 m². Following formats from this series are made through division of sheets in half of theirs longer side. Hence A1 format is half of A0, A2 is half of A1 etc. Always with round up to full millimeters.
Dimensions of B formats are geometric mean from two intermediate dimensions. Dimensions of B1 sides are geometric mean from sides of A1 and A0.
Series of C formats is mainly intended for an envelopes. Dimensions of C formats are geometric mean of appropriate A and B dimensions, ie. C2 format is geometric mean from A2 and B2. Their numbering indicates which kind of paper of A format can be putted without folding in particular envelope, ie. to C4 envelope fits A4 paper without folding.
MOST POPULAR AND MOST USED PAPERS FOR PRINTING:
Offset paper - it is uncoated paper and its surface is similar to the paper commonly used in the printers. It is also used to economical printing of leaflets, price lists, forms, tickets, notebooks, etc. due to the attractive price.
Enamel paper - it is coated paper which structure is smooth with matt or gloss finish. Enamel gloss paper underline colors of the print, while printing on matt paper causes subjective reception of colors as less saturated, however its surface feels more noble to the touch. This ground is being used primary for printing of leaflets both one side and two sides.
Self-adhesive paper- kind of paper, which consists of ground made of silicon paper, layer of glue and layer of paper or plastic foil. After detaching of bottom protective layer, paper is ready to stick. Self-adhesive paper is being produced both in sheets and rolls, can has different colors and finished of the surfaces (ie. glass or matt). Self-adhesive paper in sheets can be ie. cut, for an easier separation from an outside layer.
Decorative papers - luxury wood-free paper , usually uncoated, often with additional texture on top, watermarking, pressuring or specially colored in mass of the paper.
