Use LaTeX or ConTeXt and you can set the papersize in the document.
- International standard paper sizes http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/iso-paper.html
"The United States, Canada, and in part Mexico, are today the
only industrialized nations in which the ISO standard paper
sizes are not yet widely used."
"If you purchase new office or printing equipment in North
America, it might be wise to pay attention whether the
equipment is suitable for use with A4 paper. When you make
inquiries, best indicate to vendors that ISO 216 compatibility
of equipment is of concern to you."
"Although it is rarely advertised, ISO A4 laser printer and
copying paper, as well as suitable files and folders, are
available today from many U.S. office supply companies."
