Grand Monde

Grand Monde

Grand Monde, a paper size that stands out in the realm of print and design, is an integral part of the ISO 216 standard. This international standard, recognized worldwide except in North America where the ANSI series prevails, governs paper sizes based on an aspect ratio of √2.

The Grand Monde size is unique due to its dimensions. It's larger than your typical A4 or Letter size, providing ample space for designers and printers to work their magic. The additional real estate allows for more creative freedom and flexibility when it comes to layout design or large-scale printing projects.
