A6 size paper is 105mm by 148 mm which is half the size of A5 paper (148x210 mm) or a quarter of A4 paper (210x297 mm). This is obviously very convenient from a design point of view and printing too.
I will be covering how to print A6 inserts in another post, it is even easier to do that printing Filofax personal size.
So who makes A6 size organisers? Not an exhaustive list, but these are the ones I'm aware of:
|Van der Spek Senior and Mulberry Agenda.|
Thank you to Yvonne for the photo.
All of these organisers use a common ring spacing employing 6 rings spaced at:
19 <> 19 <> 38 <> 19 <> 19 mm
And if you are creating your own inserts, the good news is the Rapseco 6 hole punch has intermediate setting that matches this configuration between 'Pocket' and 'Personal'' The KW-Trio A5 punch and variants also have this '38 mm centre spacing' setting too.
If you are creating your own inserts you can of course design them in A6 size. Personally I tend to design in A4 size and then scale them down at printing time. All the printed fonts all be reduced in size so it is easier to work at A4 size because that is most probably the size you are used to working in.
The inserts that Ray and I make available are designed in A4 size and they will scale down to A6 easily. So there are no shortage of dairy inserts available for the A6 size. I will show you tomorrow how to easily print A6 size inserts on your own printer.
Have you ever considered using an A6 size organiser instead of Personal size?
