Note Sizes Standard

When you design or create a note, keep in mind that the right format should be followed to ensure that no important details are wasted. This includes following the right size to ensure that storage of note documents is also a straightforward process. As for the standard or average sizes, these are the ones currently in use:


The first applicable size that a note document can follow is the statement size which measures 5.5×8.5 inches. In comparison to a full-size US letter document, a statement size paper is exactly half of that in its height while maintaining the same width. For this reason, a statement size paper is also known as a half-sheet.

Letter Wide

The next standard size that can be used to create a note document is a letter-wide size. It will measure 11×8.5 inches, which is exactly the same orientation as the standard letter size in the US, only that it is in landscape orientation, not the usual portrait one. This is the most common size that is in use for a wide series of documents, including a note.


The third standard size that can be used when making a note document is the A4 paper size. Its dimensions measure 8.27 inches in width and 11.69 inches in height.
