Use this calculator to determine the linear footage (and yardage) of a roll of paper of a given basis weight (see the example below). When filling in these fields, use decimal fractions where necessary; and give all lengths in inches and weight in pounds. For your convenience, below we have included supplemental tables of approximate basis weights for C1S & C2S SBS and recycled board.

Example

Find the linear footage and yardage for a roll of basis 50# Offset paper that is 26″ wide and weighs 100 lbs.

Formula:

 (Roll Weight × [Area of Basic Size]) × 500

(Basis Weight × Roll Width) × 12

= Linear
Feet
  ÷ 3 = Linear
Yards

Equation:

 (100 × [25 × 38]) × 500

(50 × 26) × 12

= 3,045
Linear Feet
  ÷ 3 = 1,015
Linear Yards

Note that in the example above the results are rounded to the nearest foot and yard respectively.
