Most Commonly Used Poster Sizes

What are the Most Commonly Used Poster Sizes?



Most poster sizes commonly used are from the A series paper sizes, defined by the ISO 216 standard.

The poster sizes are A4, A3, A2, A1 and A0. Since we are referring to poster sizes, we begin from A4 size, but in the A series, there are smaller sizes available. A5 and A6 (which is the normal size for postcards).

A4 is the size of our normal office printing paper, measuring 21cm width x 29.7cm height.

You will find that each subsequent size is twice the size of the previous size.

For example, A3 is twice the size of A4, A2 is twice the size of A3, and so on.

Commonly used poster sizes like A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4.

Commonly used poster sizes like A0, A1, A2, A3 and A4.


Most Commonly Used Poster Sizes

A4 = 21cm x 29.7cm

A3 = 29.7cm x 42cm

A2 = 42cm x 59.4cm

A1 = 59.4cm x 84cm

A0 = 84cm x 118.8cm

There is also the B series paper sizes,

It’s not as commonly used as the A series, but you find the poster sizes being used for IKEA poster frames and more.

B4 = 25cm x 35.3cm

B3 = 35.3cm x 50cm

B2 = 50cm x 70.7cm

B1 = 70.7cm x 100cm

B0 = 100cm x 141cm



These are the most common sizes of posters that designers and design clients will usually stick to, but frankly, there is no restriction or limitation to the size or shape of the poster which you can create.

We have had experience printing many different custom sizes and shapes. For posters with a custom shape, diecut to an irregular shape, we can do them too.




Posters can also be made to lifesize standees, which can be propped up with an aluminium easel attached to its back. This is also commonly used, and we have made a few for customers. Most memorable are the ones made for wedding reception, where the wedding couple are printed out as a poster made into a lifesize standee.

Reuse Existing Pull Up Banner Stand

Can I reuse existing Pull Up Banner Stand?

“Our company already has several pull up banner stands that we purchased previously. The graphic is outdated and we have new designs that we want to use. Can I reuse existing pull up banner stand?

Yes, you can reuse existing Pull Up Banner Stand. Not to worry, here at, we have done it for our clients all the time.

Here’s how you can reuse existing Pull Up Banner Stand: The Pull Up Banner Stand consists of a printed banner and a cartridge system. If it is time to refresh your banner design, you can return the Pull Up Banner Stand to us. We can trim the old banner out, print a fresh new banner. And we can install it into the same cartridge system. It is more cost-efficient to keep reusing your banner stands this way. Replacing just the print costs significantly less than getting a new stand.

Please ensure that your existing stand is in good condition, is not badly dented, or damaged in any way. We understand that our customers use display products intensively and extensively. We have seen banner stands which traverse across different continents in less than a month, passing through multiple hands and being used at numerous events. There is a lot of handling, from exhibition, to cargo, etc. (One plus point is that the cartridge, being made of solid aluminium, covers the printed banner, protecting the banner from any knocks or dents. This is why the printed banners usually last many years looking as good as new.)

So before returning a Pull Up Banner Stand to us for print replacement, please check to see if the stand is still in good functioning condition.

Reuse Existing Pull Up Banner Stand and Give them a new Lease of Life.

Doing our small part for the environment

We are glad to help you save cost as well as save the environment by reusing your existing banner stands.

(If you have Pull Up Banner Stands which were purchased from other companies and not originally from, we can also offer the banner print replacement for your stand too. Many different models have passed through our workshop, and we’ve had a chance to get acquainted with them before.)

We have had customers ask us before if it is possible for them to DIY (do-it-yourself) the reprint installation. Yes you can, but it will be much safer to let us do it for you so you don’t run the risk of loosening the roller system in the cartridge such that it becomes totally unwound.

Call us if you need more information, we are pleased to be at your service.

How To Fix a Stainless Steel Clip Banner Stand?

The stainless steel clip banner stand has a heavy base weighing 12kg and this comes in handy in outdoor areas that can get a bit windy. Most lightweight stands or display items might topple over or fly in the face of the wind, but the stainless steel clip banner stand will remain standing, displaying your poster or banner.

It comes with 2 adjustable clips to hold your poster or banner and is very flexible in handling posters or banners of various sizes. To hold large banners, you can use 2 or 3 of these stands to hold up the sides. A great looking and versatile display stand.

The video below shows how to assemble the stainless steel clip banner stand:

In most cases, you do not need to assemble or disassemble the stand. When you purchase the stainless steel clip banner stand from us, we will deliver it to you assembled, unless you require it to be stored in your warehouse and need it more compact. In most cases, our customers want the clip banner stand delivered to retail outlets and ready to use, so we will deliver it assembled.

Assembling is not difficult. You just need to screw the pole into the base of the stand, and fix the 2 clips on. The sections of the pole are locked when you rotate clockwise, and unlocked when you rotate counter-clockwise. It really is very simple to use.

Stainless Steel Clip Banner Stand


One of the benefits of using this stand is how easy it is to change your posters and banners that you wish to display. The top and bottom clips easily release the display poster or banner, and you can put up a new one. You can change them daily if you wish to. It only takes a few seconds to get it done.
