Linear/Square Dims

Use this calculator to determine the linear and square area measure of a roll of paper of a given basis weight.

Results are provided as an estimate only and do not represent actual results.

  • Your roll weight may include tare.
  • Core size will impact weight and area calculations.
  • Paper finish will also impact linear/area calculations (caliper variation)

Basis weight equals the ream (500 sheet) weight of the base size (specific to paper stock category)

Different paper categories have different base size aka standard size.

The number of sheets per ream is almost always 500 sheets.
