I know it's a daft question but can anyone tell me the difference between A3 and A3 + . I also see the option in my print preferences. The intended use for the Epson Premium Glossy SO41316 (255gms) is club competitions.
My thoughts are that the above is a heavier weight paper suitable for my purpose as I have used same brand A3 but "paper thin" excuse pun i.e. Epson Photo Quality Glossy Paper S041125.

A3+ is a little bit larger than A3 (11.7 inches wide for A3 and 13 inches wide for A3+)
Thank You. I wonder why they developed that wee bit extra in the first place. It seems confusing to me
I occasionally opt to frame my prints in a 500x700 frame and use a wide mount. A3+ can help in such situations. I believe that most paper manufacturers who produce A3 paper also produce a A3+ option.
The other interesting thing to note, especially with Epson papers, is that the A3+ size can often be cheaper to purchase than the same grade paper in A3 size, even though they're larger sheets; I presume it's a case of supply and demand, but I often buy A3+ size just because it less expensive.
So that you can print a full size A3 image without losing anything from the sides. You can also add crop marks for trimming etc.
Thanks to all. Paper ordered
