    Printer paper size question

    We need some specilist paper for the ID badges at the conf. It should be the size of a credit card (each frame) and come in A4 sheets.
    Anyone know what size this is and a supplier (PC World, Staples etc)
    This is a priority, so some good advice is needed ASAP.

    Like this? Staples.co.uk - Duraprint Printable Badge Insert Sheets
    They also do software for designing the badges and various plastic holders...

    Hi Dos_Box,
    In the past I've used DECAdry PC Papers, bought from Staples. They're really good quality and once printed you simply peel the ID cards / business cards off the backing paper (non-sticky once off).
    The sizes I have off the contact sheet are:
    A4 paper -
    margin top and bottom 13.5mm
    margin left and right 15mm

    there are 2 columns of cards 85mm wide and 54 mm high, each column has 5 cards (total 10 per page) with a 10mm gap between the columns.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Regards
    Muppet

    Right, it turns out we need the card area to be the same as a credit card\ID badge of 95x65(64?)mm. My cold has got worse and I'm damned if I can find any before I go to bed exhausted. If someone can find somewhere that stocks this size in sheet format please let me know on here as a matter of urgency.
