Forty Eight Sheet

The British 48 Sheet measures approximately 120x240 and has been used for major projects all the way back to the early years of the industry. The 48 Sheet has been used sparingly and only in the major cities as well. NOTICE: below we have a 48 sheet from the 1931 pressbook for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and below that we have a 48 sheet from the 1965 pressbook for Thunderball


Even though it's called a 48 sheet in the industry, the measurements are based on the double crown (20x30) as a one sheet, and it is 48 times the size of double crown. See our explanation on size terminology on the article on Poster Sizes.

This is equivilent to the American 24 sheet or billboard

In the UK, these are specially made so we have never seen one available.
