Foolscap Legal Paper


Foolscap Paper Size

The foolscap legal paper that we supply is 330 x 203mm, this is 13 x 8″ in imperial measurements.  This size of paper was fairly common up until the 1980’s, but then became less popular coinciding with the popularity of A4 paper.  A4 paper became the standard businesses paper and machines began having their paper cassettes set up to accept A4 as standard.

Foolscap Paper Weight

Foolscap legal paper is available in many weights from 60gsm up to 120gsm, however the most common weight by far is the 80gsm.  This is suitable for use in almost any photocopier or printer that has a paper cassette that is adjustable to accept paper that is 330mm (13″) in length.

What Is Foolscap Printer Paper Used for These Days?

A lot of the foolscap legal paper that we supply goes to the film industry.  They use it if they are making programs or movies set in the time before A4 paper was generally used.  Foolscap might look a very similar size to A4, however if they are spending millions of pounds on a movie or series, they may as well get the foolscap paper size correct.
