How big is a flyer

DIN A6 dimensions: In cm, mm & pixels - that's how big the flyer format is

If you hold flyers, postcards or paperbacks in your hand, they are often in DIN A6 format or a similarly large format. On the normal DIN A4 format, you can accommodate a total of four DIN A6 sheets when printing. In this guide you will find out the DIN A6 dimensions in cm, mm and how big the little brother of writing and printer paper is in pixels.

The DIN-A6 format is also Half sheet or Sixteenth arc and is mainly used for individual flyers. Notebooks and some paperbacks are also in DIN-A6 format, but mostly consist of folded DIN-A5 pages. The one after the DIN (D.German I.Institute for NOrmung) standardized A-paper sizes are used in many different countries today, but there are also other sizes that offer similar dimensions.

DIN A6 dimensions - This is how big the sheet is

The DIN-A6 format is 105 mm wide and 148 mm high, i.e. 10.5 cm wide and 14.8 cm high. The DIN-A6 format is derived from the reference format DIN-A0 (841 mm x 1189 mm). If you fold a DIN-A0 sheet six times in the middle, you will get the height and width dimensions of DIN A6. If you split an A4 sheet in the middle of its height and width, you will receive four A5 sheets.

We have summarized other formats that are similar to the A6 format and their dimensions compared to A6 and A0 in the following table:

DIN A6 size in pixels?

If you want to create a flyer, invitation or birthday card in DIN-A6 format in your image editing or layout program, you can of course create the right format right away. Without the pixel density, however, you cannot simply convert pixels into centimeters or millimeters, since a pixel is not a fixed unit of size. To get the right aspect ratio, you need the pixel density in PPI (Pixels per inch) in the correct proportion to the number of pixels for height and width.

The following table shows the common point densities and how many pixels you need for height and width to generate an A6 image. Please note: the higher the point density, the sharper the image in the end. 300 ppi however, are completely sufficient to produce a good print result and a sharp digital image.
