From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ISO 217:1995 standard defines the RA and SRA paper formats.

These paper series are untrimmed raw paper. RA stands for “raw format A” and SRA stands for “supplementary raw format A”. The RA and SRA formats are slightly larger than the corresponding A series formats. These paper sheets will after printing and binding be cut to match the A format.

  • The ISO A0 format has an area of 1.00 m²
  • The ISO RA0 format has an area of 1.05 m²
  • The ISO SRA0 format has an area of 1.15 m²
RA Series Formats SRA Series Formats
RA0 860 × 1220 SRA0 900 × 1280
RA1 610 × 860 SRA1 640 × 900
RA2 430 × 610 SRA2 450 × 640
RA3 305 × 430 SRA3 320 × 450
RA4 215 × 305 SRA4 225 × 320


Paper in the RA and SRA series format has a 1:\sqrt{2} aspect ratio but the dimensions of the start format have been rounded to whole centimetres.
