Letter size paper

Anyone know where can I get Letter size paper? I've looked on digitec.ch but they don't offer it.

Buy A3 and use scissors.

Re: Letter size paper

Migros and probably Coop too will have them.

Re: Letter size paper

The only place I found it in the past was on Amazon. Unfortunately the shipping costs were 5X the price of the paper itself.

That's been suggested. So I asked my employer to provide me with an A3 size guillotine. Mine handles only up to A4.

Re: Letter size paper

Lovely. Except I'm creating forms for our US subsidiary. I need to be able to confirm that I'm having exactly the same output on my printer that they're having. Setting Word to US Letter and then printing on A4 paper doesn't achieve this.

True. At 200CHF per hour, I'm happy to do that. I'm not entirely convinced that the US office sending me a 100 sheets of their paper will be more expensive. Especially given my fine motor skills.

If yours handles A4, than it is big enough to cut your own letter format out of A3

Or just grab a pack of 100 from Zumstein for 11,- :P

Re: Letter size paper

Just ordered some A3. At least I can cut the excess in half so it won't go to waste.

Well, it won't because the sizes are different to start with. US Letter paper has a width of 215.9mm with a length of 279.4mm. A4 has a width of 210mm and a length of 297mm. Nor do I think you'll find US letter paper here, it'll all be A4 size.

Actually a nice bunch of companies sell Letter format. Just don't expect it at migros, but a lot of office supply companies have it.

That's good to know. Can you post the name of one of those companies; quick and dirty google searches don't come up with anything.

Perfect. Zumstein looks to be a good solution. That other one however will include shipping from USA, China or Japan.
