The Essential Guide to Print Product Sizes



What Do You Need to Print?

Print products come in a variety of different sizes. It is important to setup your design in your page layout program from the start using the actual dimensions of the print product. This will avoid any headaches later on during the printing process.

Many products come in standard dimensions that provide a good reference point for printers, designers, and clients.
