American Letter Size Paper

There are many companies in the UK that receive information and marketing material from their parent companies in the US.  This paper is often different to the UK standard, which is A4 size.  A popular US size paper is American letter Size or American quarto, which is 11 x 8.5″ or 279 x 216mm.

The American letter paper is often bought to fit into American size binder.  These usually have 3 rings as opposed to 2 or 4 rings that the UK use.  Octopus can supply American letter size paper pre-punched with 3 holes if required.

American Legal Size Paper

Another common American size paper is American legal or American foolscap.  This is a similar size to the UK foolscap size which was commonly used in our legal industry, but now has been largely replaced with standard cheap A4 paper.  The size of American legal paper is 14 x 8.5″ or 356 x 216mm.  This paper is available in several weights, however the most common thickness is 80gsm.

Great Service and Product

I’m traveling throughout the UK but I’m from North America and needed some US legal paper. Couldn’t find it anywhere in stores so had to purchase it online. Octopus looked to be the best option so I ordered it from them. Super fast friendly and efficient service and got my paper in two days. Super happy with the experience. I highly recommend them.

Thank you Robert, We hope you are enjoying the UK and thanks for highly recommending us, Kind regards Octopus team.

First stop for office supplies- Legal paper

I came across Octopus when I was literally at my wits end trying to source legal size printer paper which I needed urgently to print document to send abroad. My husband was able to locate supplier on amazon and had in fact placed an order which would come from USA!!
I called my local solicitors who advised they had not used this paper for over 10 years.
I continued to check online due to the urgency and found Octopus. I placed the order and item arrived as expected within 2 days - perfect.
My documents have been printed and couriered and amazon shipment still not arrived!
Thank you Octopus - so appreciate your service. You will now be my first stop for office supplies.

Thank you for your review! Just proving that amazon isnt the answer to everything 🙂

I fully agree with review Aug 25, 2020 by Nick on Octopus Office Products saying:
At last! A stationer that doesn't assume you only ever want A4 or A5 paper.
Certainly we found nobody in all of Scandinavia selling US 8.5 x 11 reams.
Mike was helpful by immediately adding Denmark and Canada to the menu.
Our order arrived in Denmark from Octopus in short order.
In future we would prefer the heavier 20 lbs stock if available.

Thank you for your review John. Really happy that I was able to assist you with your order.We can supply the paper in heavier weights, so we can discuss it next time.Thanks again,Mike

    I’m looking for US letter size three hole punched card for replacements in an old photo album. The centres between the holes are 10.5cms. Is this something you might have, or could you steer me to where I might find them. Ideally I would like self adhesive cellophane on them to protect the photos but just the right sized card would be okay.
    Many thanks
