13″ x 19″. The Super B of Paper…

The old adage that bigger is better does not always apply in printing. Over the past 15 years, 13” x 19” cut sheets, also known as super B, have held their own. The biggest question is why?

Why has 13 x 19 continued to flourish in an environment that continually touts wide format? Personally, I think the answer is three pronged- price, quality, and ease. In the past 10-15 years, the price of printers and their cost of operation has dropped significantly thus making them affordable for many individuals and small businesses. Though price has become more affordable, quality has not suffered. Today’s printers boast capabilities ranging from the production of detailed architectural and engineering drawings to brilliant, full-color fine art reproductions- all at a fraction of yesterday’s prices. Lastly, 13 x 19 is much easier to manage than bulkier 24 x 36. Many electricians, plumbers, field engineers, and landscape architects prefer the smaller size sheets when on job sites where large tables are unavailable to lay out bulky sets of plans, and the need for extensive data and drawings is unnecessary.
