    Are you talking about inches? I just measured my printer paper and my photo paper - both are 8-1/2" x 11".


    Some of the bull posted in TNet is just plain ridiculous. How can anybody post such tripe and still have the courage to continue to logon? Zephyr, I am just astonished to read your statement. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and presume you used a broken ruler. Sheesh.
    Well, a little mea culpa on my part. Remembering back, the pages were actually 8.25" x 10.75" (though the packaging clearly stated 8.5x11), measured with the rulers being sold in the same office supply stores. And if you had read my statement carefully, you would have noticed that I did not say "all" paper manufacturers.
    I know what I saw, but I don't blame you for being skeptical....

    Go to Home Depot, Lowes, or any home improvement center, and measure a 2X4

    1.5x3.5. drives me nuts. but older stuff was even worse. no exact size.
