Why is branding important?

Branding is used in all businesses, no matter the size or type, and it has been used for millennia as there is evidence that brands were used in ancient Egypt.  Branding is intended to identify goods and services and deliver the message that your business or product is the only one suitable for the client’s needs.

However, paper has been in circulation for hundreds of years. From the shabby tomes that have been found across time to the leather bound novels that we can buy today in stores, paper still serves an incredible purpose to man.

But when did paper become the style it was today? When did it move away from being shaven wood or tea-stained scribbling’s sent via an eagle?

There has been a widespread, international standardization for paper for many years now. However, beforehand the world had a huge variety of different standardizations which made the easy transport and delivery of paper in different countries very difficult indeed.

The current standard, the ISO standard, compromises of you’re A, B and C classes. The paper size of course affects what you will be doing – A4 makes up your general writing paper or letterhead, whereas A1 is the largest and can be used for designing placards or used as a basis for a large plan.

The constant changing and arguing between nations about what standard to use eventually led to the creation of the ISO standard. The first advantages of having a standardized paper use was noticed in 1786 by Georg Christoph Lichtenberg. Lichtenberg, sending a letter to Johann Beckmann, created formats which made up the modern-day A2, A3, B3, B4 and B5 paper sizes.
