Belonging to the ISO 216 standard, the S10R paper size is a unique and often overlooked member of this globally recognized series. This specific format, while not as commonly used as its A-series counterparts, holds its own distinctive appeal and utility.

The dimensions of an S10R paper are precisely defined by the ISO 216 standard. It measures 444 x 630 mm, providing ample space for various applications. Its size makes it particularly suitable for large-scale designs or detailed presentations that require more room than traditional formats offer.

Interestingly, the aspect ratio of all ISO paper sizes, including S10R, is √2:1. This unique characteristic ensures that when a sheet is divided into two equal halves along its longer side, each half retains the original aspect ratio. This feature facilitates seamless scaling of documents without distortion or loss of content proportionality.

Despite being less prevalent than other sizes in everyday use such as A4 or A3, S10R has found its niche in specialized fields like architecture and engineering where larger drawings are required. It's also popular in commercial printing for creating impactful marketing materials that stand out from conventional formats.

While it may not be your first choice when reaching for a sheet of paper, the S10R size offers unique advantages that can make it an ideal choice depending on your specific needs. Its adherence to ISO standards ensures consistency and compatibility across different applications worldwide.

Interesting facts about S10R

1: S10R paper is a part of the ISO 216 standard

S10R paper is a specific size within the ISO 216 standard, which is an international system for paper sizes. This standard was first introduced in 1975 and has been widely adopted around the world.

2: S10R paper measures approximately 128 mm x 182 mm

The dimensions of S10R paper are approximately 128 mm x 182 mm (5.04 in x 7.17 in). It falls within the range of small-sized papers and is commonly used for various purposes such as note-taking or printing small documents.

3: S10R paper is not commonly found outside Japan

While ISO sizes like A4 and A5 are widely used globally, S10R paper is primarily used in Japan. It may be challenging to find this specific size outside of Japan, as it caters to their unique printing requirements.

4: The "S" series represents trimmed sizes

In the ISO standard, the "S" series represents trimmed sizes that are slightly smaller than their corresponding "A" series counterparts. For example, S10R is smaller than A9 but larger than A8.

5: The aspect ratio of S10R paper is approximately √2

The aspect ratio of S10R paper (width divided by height) is approximately √2 (1.414), which means that when you fold it in half along its longer side, you get two sheets with the same proportions as the original sheet.

6: The "S" series was introduced to accommodate different printing needs

The "S" series was introduced to provide a wider range of paper sizes that catered to specific printing needs. These sizes are often used for specialized purposes, such as envelopes, cards, or small booklets.

7: S10R paper is commonly used for printing manga

In Japan, S10R paper is frequently used for printing manga (Japanese comics). Its compact size allows for easy handling and reading while maintaining the necessary level of detail in the illustrations.

8: The ISO 216 standard has its roots in German DIN formats

The ISO 216 standard, including the "S" series, evolved from the German DIN formats introduced in the early 20th century. These formats aimed to establish a consistent system for paper sizes and simplify printing processes.

9: S10R paper can be converted from A-series sizes

If you have an A-series sheet of paper and want to convert it into S10R size, you can achieve this by trimming it down along its longer side. However, keep in mind that this may result in some loss of content or formatting.

10: The ISO standard helps reduce waste and optimize resource utilization

The adoption of standardized paper sizes like S10R within the ISO system helps reduce waste by minimizing offcuts during production. It also optimizes resource utilization as manufacturers can efficiently plan their production processes based on these standardized dimensions.
