I am curious to what size of paper your office typically prints on?
Generally A4 size.
A4... not sure what option I should select. I'm dumb enough to not know what A4 translates to (in terms of inches) and sunday mornings are lazy enough to make me not google this up
Even my printer gives more options of sizes. So I'm guessing this poll is (like MR's contests), for US residents only.
I had to go scrounging for a legal size sheet two weeks ago. Evidently we use that size exactly once a year. Beyond that, is pretty much traditional letter size.
I'm a European. A4 is a standard size here.
Paper for office use is not described in inches.
A4 sometimes A3.
But we print less and less these days.
Reports tend to be viewed on screens etc.
Actually, for spotting errors (grammatical, factual and spelling), I find that nothing beats a hard copy to hand. Screens can be very deceptive.
Depends on the screens!
Not really (or, rather, not in my case).
Actually, I have been embarrassed at the (obvious) errors I have missed on a screen, - even when combing through it a second and third time - but have successfully spotted once when the thing had been printed out.
In fact, for anything really important, I now insist on a hard copy; it is easy to insert (or dictate) the changes that need to be made to the version on screen from a hard copy, and I, personally, find it far easier to spot mistakes and errors with a hard copy to hand.
Thank god, finally! I've been waiting for this thread!
In most groups 8 1/2 x 11 (I'm American, you contert it to ISO). Although we can scale up to legal and some Redwood tree size but that needs hand fed. We can send requests to another group who can print on forest sized paper. We have sections of different schemas printed, both physical and logical sides hanging on the wall. It's like a bazillion changes behind. I guess we should clear cut another forest to get it up to date.
I have liked to use A5 as well, on occasion.
At home I sometimes print 5"x7" but only photos!
Well, it is handy for the 'notepad on knee' style of note taking; small enough to be portable, yet large enough to be able to write a fair bit of something useful in it.
In the states 8.5"x11", everywhere else A4.
Personally,i dislike using paper of any size and try to do everything digitally.
Thank you everyone for the responses.
Normally A4 and sometimes A3 at work. The biggest I've printed myself is A0, but we got a 2A0 printer a few weeks ago (but no paper, go figure).
A4 so 8.3 X 11.7 which isn't listed.
At work, our internal standards dictate specifications and drawings are to be done on ANSI B size templates (11x17) but are most commonly printed on ANSI A (8.5x11) so all of our fonts and line weights are designed to scale to this that size and be legible.
I ordered some ink for our Epson 9880 today. That prints 44" rolls as long as you like.
What is the ink like?
8 cartridges. £60-£70 each.
Not one for the home office.
Well, I have a small laser printer (a Brother) in my home office.
While it doesn't need to be changed all that often, it can be rather costly when it does require changing.
Generally 8.5x11 for pretty much everything. Many printers can accomodate 8.5x14 (legal) these days. 11x17 can be found in some of our copy machines and print center, as well as wide format printing.
Mostly A4, sometimes (for big diagrams etc.) A3. Occasionally I print two A5 pages side-by-side on an A4 sheet, to save paper.
