Sixteen Sheet

The British Sixteen Sheet measures approximately 80x120 and is a fairly new size that started around 1960. This seems to be a replacement size for the British 3 sheets, 6 sheets and smaller banners. I haven't been able to find any before that time.

Even though it's called a 16 sheet in the industry, the measurements are based on the double crown (20x30) as a one sheet, and it is 16 times the size of double crown. See our explanation on size terminology on the article on Poster Sizes.

NOTICE: the sample on the left. This was taken from the Thunderball pressbook and shows the size and name. This size was used in all the early Bond films.


Here's a look at the British Sixteen Sheets in our database
