Czech Poster Sizes


In poster collecting circles, both parts of Czechoslovakia, the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic are still known as Czechoslovakian posters. Each republic is about the size of the state of New York in the U.S, but the vast majority of the posters that are seen on the collectors market come from the Czech Republic where the majority of the films are shown. Both republics issue film posters the same size and the majority of them look almost identical except for a few minor differences. Here are the dominant sizes for both republics.

11x16 - called 'petite', or 'A3', the width and the height will sometimes vary an inch or so.

23x33 - this is the standard size, similar to Germany and called by collectors an 'A1'.

12x36 - called 'nudles' (pronounced like 'noodles') similar to the U.S. insert but also varying an inch or so both ways. Nudles were more common in the 1930s - 1950s, with the pre-war size quite often closer to 11x33 and the post war sizes varying from 12x36 to 12x38.


Here are the Czech posters that we have in the
so far.
