International Envelope Series



Belonging to the ISO 216 series, E8 paper size is a unique and often overlooked member of this internationally recognized standard. The dimensions of an E8 paper are 52mm x 74mm, making it a perfect fit for specific applications where compactness is key.

ISO 216, which includes the A, B, C and D series along with the lesser-known E series, has been adopted by countries worldwide due to its logical and practical system of paper sizes. The E series is particularly interesting as it's designed for envelopes that accommodate the A series papers.

E8 specifically fits an A7 document without folding. This makes it ideal for small-scale print materials such as tickets or labels. Its compact size also lends itself well to being used in personal organizers or pocket diaries.

Despite its smaller stature compared to other ISO sizes like A4 or B3, E8 holds its own in terms of utility and versatility. It's a testament to the thoughtfulness behind the ISO 216 standard - every size has a purpose and meets a specific need.

While not as commonly used as some of its counterparts in the ANSI or other ISO series', E8 stands out due to its unique dimensions and specific use cases. It's another example of how thoughtful design can lead to efficient solutions in everyday life.
