Frequently Asked Questions

What are the A1 dimensions?

The A1 paper size measures at 594mm x 841mm, and is ideal for posters which you could use for your shop window or to advertise event information. When designing your artwork, you’ll need to remember to add a 3mm bleed to both sides, making your A1 size in mm slightly bigger.

Need to know the sizing in cm or inches?

  • A1 in cm: 59.4 x 84.1
  • A1 in inches: 23.4 x 33.1
  • A1 in pixels: 9933 x 7016
  • A1 is also the second-largest A size standardised by the ISO and offers plenty of space for you to get your key brand messaging or important information across to potential customers.

    What resolution do I need for A1 printing?

    Because the A1 size is particularly big, you will need to ensure the resolution is correct so that your printing is the best quality. The last thing you want is to be advertising for your business and the print quality of your A1 poster or sign to be blurry!

    When creating your artwork, you’ll need to set your blank canvas up at 594 x 841mm at 300dpi (dots per inch). Don’t forget, you’ll also need to add your bleed, which we recommend to be 3mm on each side. This will make sure there isn’t a white border around your finished printed product.

    If your inhouse design team is creating your artwork, they will know how to set up the dpi and add the bleed in programmes like Photoshop and InDesign. If you’re creating your A1 printing online or offline yourself and are unsure, we have a couple of handy templates to help you get started:

    What can I design at an A1 size?

    There are a wealth of marketing materials and exciting products you can create in the A1 size! Whether you’re looking to advertise an upcoming event and need people to see information from far and wide, or you’re utilising this large paper option to share technical and architectural drawings, the A1 paper size gives you the ability (and space) to let your imagination run wild.

    If you’re looking to add some exciting artwork to the interior of your shop, A1 printing is great for all manner of designs and creations that will make your wall stand out. You could even buy some A1 size frames and create a feature wall that your customers will love.

    Wanting something more robust for advertising? Did you know our correx, aluminium, magnetic and cardboard signs, can all be designed in A1 dimensions too? These are ideal if you’re advertising for an outdoor concert or event, or even to direct people to your new establishment, and even in your carpark!

    Whatever your A1 printing needs, at instantprint we’ve got you covered.
