The size of your poster depends on where it will be displayed. There are some standard poster sizes in the US which must be kept in mind while designing posters. Typically, the posters in the US are sized as small, medium, and large. There, however, is a smaller size – the letter size. Let’s see what these standard poster sizes are, in the US

215.9 x 279.4 mm
