Ledger Paper

Ledger paper is a type of durable, heavy paper traditionally used in accounting and record-keeping. Its standard size is 11 inches by 17 inches, making it larger than typical office paper.

Ledger paper is commonly used for financial statements, reports, and other documents that require a wider format for tabular data or dual-page spreads.


Tabloid Paper


  1. Accounting Books: Ledger paper is often used for manual accounting ledgers, where its large size facilitates detailed entries, ample space for multiple columns, and clear separation of debits and credits.
  2. Engineering Plans: The dimensions of ledger paper make it suitable for printing engineering drawings, schematics, or architectural plans that require clarity and detail.
  3. Marketing Materials: Companies may use ledger-sized paper for small-scale marketing posters, event schedules, or informational brochures where additional space is needed to present visual and textual information effectively.


  • Printer Compatibility: Ensure that printers and copiers are capable of handling ledger paper, as its larger size may not be supported by standard office equipment.
  • Binding and Folding: Consider the binding and folding requirements when using ledger paper for publications or booklets. Its larger size may require specialized binding techniques or equipment.
  • Cost and Availability: Ledger paper can be more expensive and less readily available than standard letter-size or legal-size papers. Plan accordingly for budget constraints and sourcing issues.
  • Storage: Due to its size, ledger paper may require more storage space and special handling to prevent damage such as tearing or creasing.
  • Environmental Impact: Consider the environmental impact of using larger-sized paper. Choose recycled ledger paper or sustainably sourced options to reduce the ecological footprint.
