Guide to Page Sizes
This page shows what A4 and A5 is.
FW is an A4 page-size magazine as are fRoots, English Dance & Song, Living Traditions.
Many smaller regional folk magazines are A5.
Folk Monthly is 1/2 A4 across.
An A5 can't fit an A4 magazine - it must be made bigger or smaller:
we have made up some examples for you.
It may help to download them (please ignore outdated prices & webpage references)
In page 1, the green background, represents 4 x 1/4 A4.
You can simply reduce A5 to 1/4 A4 (1 of these 4 boxes)
- or you can redesign it, as 2 of 4 green boxes (across or up) - see page 2, Chippenham FF advert.
Or, as page 3, you can simply enlarge A5 to A4 - as last page below.
We can reduce A5 to 1/4, we can enlarge A5 to A4.
We cannot stretch A5 to 1/2 A4 - it would be distorted.
If you want 1/2 A4, you have to redesign the A5.
You could design as 1/2 A5 and we could then enlarge to 1/2 A4
