Cut sheets calculator
Update 10/15/18: Sadly, Paper Mojo has closed its web doors. I have removed links in this post that are no longer valid. The link to the calculator is still working as of today.
I just discovered the most awesome resource!
I was checking out the newest papers at Paper Mojo when I noticed this little icon beneath one of the paper swatches:
So I click on it and I’m brought to the following page:
It’s a Cut Sheet Calculator!
I’m totally nerding out over this (and it’s probably been there forever). When trying to figure out how much paper to buy for a project, I usually do these calculations by hand but now I don’t have to. No more thinking – just plug in the numbers and whhheeeee!!!
One caveat: The calculator automatically takes into account a 0.5″ trim off all edges of the paper. This is because many handmade papers have deckled edges and if you want your final pieces to be clean-cut, you have to address the inconsistency.
Thanks Paper Mojo!
