Further searching on the web led me here:

It plainly states that the flip folder "...will hold music up to seven inches wide and four and one half inches tall."

I suppose that is the size you were looking for. As to what to call it...I don't know.

I know the size that Garrett is talking about. I remember the appoximate size and measured what my memory said was the size. I then went to:

There I found a reference to a size called "statement" or "half letter" which is 5.5"x8.5" (half of an 8.5x11 inch sheet). This is analogous to A5 paper. This may or may not be the actual size of the "march" paper, but it's close, and it's something you can easily make if you can't buy it.

Hope this helps,

Sorry, I don't know anything about marching bands, but I imagine they would use normal concert (9x12) sized pages. (So it would be printed on 12x18 paper.) If you like I can send you my paper.scm file wherein I *think* I still have all those defined so it's a bit easier to get lilypond to print to that size. Or, it's fairly easy to see the examples in the file and add your own paper sizes

Thanks, James, that's part of what I was looking for. The booklet size I was thinking of was marching band size -- do you know what that's called?

I'm currently working on some marches, and I was thinking about getting them printed as a booklet, as well as 8.5x11. What paper size do I call this? Also, what is the typical size for printing a full-page music sheet? How about conductors' scores?
