Rolling Paper SizesPosted by: Jay Jones
Rolling papers come in various sizes and are sometimes referred to in confusing size descriptions. Since some users aren't sure about the sizes of rolling papers and need clarifications we've written this brief article to help our customers. Rolling papers come in different sizes for different needs. The standard sizes are single wide, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, and King Size.
Single Wide Rolling Papers
Though the term "single wide" various from brand to brand, typically a single wide paper is 68-70mm in length and 34-36mm in height. If you do the conversion to inches it works out to about 2.75 inches x 1.40 inches. These are the "standard" sizes of the single wide papers and, as stated before, some brands differ from these sizes. In general, these are the most common rolling papers (though often not the most popular) and should be easily found in some form at any head shop or gas station.
1 1/4 (One and a Quarter) Rolling Papers
Some users like a larger paper and the 1 1/4 rolling papers offer a slightly larger paper to make the fill a bit larger. These are by far the most popular size of rolling papers sold today. The 1 1/4 size, or "one and a quarter" size papers generally range from 76-78mm in length and 45-48mm in height. If you do the conversion to inches this is 3.1 inches x 1.8 inches. Remember that each brand can be a slightly different size, but in general the above description will be close if not exact.
1 1/2 (One and a Half) Rolling Papers
Some users like a larger paper even still and the 1 1/2 rolling papers offer a rather large rolling paper for those that just can't get enough product stuffed into their smoke! These papers aren't extremely popular, but they do get a good bit of action for avid smokers. The 1 1/2 size, or "one and a half" size papers generally range from 76-78mm in length and 60-62mm in height. If you do the conversion to inches this is 3.1 inches x 2.4 inches - a pretty big paper for smokers.
King Size Rolling Papers
Okay, boys and girls, these are some of the biggest papers available with a consistent size across brands.
