Sorry for the dumb question, a4 at least is a type of paper, I thought the answer was going to be some sort of esoteric thing which I'd not find on google...

It's not type of paper, but a size of paper in DIN format, like you have Legal and Letter format.

A0 size is 1sq meter in surface
A1 is half size A0
A2 is half size A1 or 1/4 of a sq meter.
A3 is half size A2
A4 is half size A3
etc...










A minimal technical knowledge is required for this hobby; please ensure you know the differences between up and down.

The clever bit is that all the page sides are in the same ratio. If you cut an A4 in half it is the same ratio of side as before. So you can enlarge or reduce anything without changing its shape.
