American Letter Size Paper

There are many companies in the UK that receive information and marketing material from their parent companies in the US.  This paper is often different to the UK standard, which is A4 size.  A popular US size paper is American letter Size or American quarto, which is 11 x 8.5″ or 279 x 216mm.

The American quarto paper is often bought to fit into American size binder.  These usually have 3 rings as opposed to 2 or 4 rings that the UK use.  Octopus can supply American letter size paper pre-punched with 3 holes if required.

Another common American paper is American foolscap or American legal.  This is a similar size to the UK foolscap size which was commonly used in our legal industry, but now has been largely replaced with standard cheap A4 paper.  The size of American Foolscap is 14 x 8.5″ or 356 x 216mm.  This paper is available in several weights, however the most common thickness is 80gsm.

    Hi,
    I’m looking for US letter size three hole punched card for replacements in an old photo album. The centres between the holes are 10.5cms. Is this something you might have, or could you steer me to where I might find them. Ideally I would like self adhesive cellophane on them to protect the photos but just the right sized card would be okay.
    Many thanks
