LAMP International Poster Index


A twelve sheet is a size of poster poster that is approximately 12 times the size of the one sheet. This statement alone would seem to be a very simple and easy to understand explanation.... HOWEVER... it's not quite that simple.

In the US, it was rarely used size primarily in the 1940s. For more on this size see the US article on Twelve Sheet.

In the UK, however a twelve sheet is a COMPLETELY different size AND can get quite confusing. The explanation would STILL be the same.. that it is approximately TWELVE times the size of the one sheet... BUT it then depends on what you determine the one sheet to be.

A Twelve Sheet in the UK is what we call a 6 sheet in the US.... for more information on this, see our article on British 6 Sheets
