Paper Size

Postby Roseflamingo » Tue Oct 17, 2017 10:26 am

What size paper would be needed to print a 22mm spine cover? Is there a chart available with paper sizes for different spine widths? ! was thinking A4 for 22mm but would like to be sure before I invest a bunch of money into more high quality papers.

Thanks, Rose

Hmmm, never really thought of this one as I only use standard cases. Why not do a trial print on ordinary A4 paper? If too short then foolscap may be a possibility which is 1/2 inch bigger @ 8 1⁄2 × 13 1⁄2 inches (216 × 343 mm) .
Sad Lexa Doig Fan and PROUD of it!

i use 3305 x 1762 with a 257 spine for 22mm (10 disc elite) cases.
A4 works just fine for that. :)

Thanks for the help. Still experimenting with normal A4 paper, want to get it right before using the good stuff. ;)
