Bingo Paper Cut Selections

Bingo paper is printed in a variety of master sheet configurations to give hall operators & players plenty of options to choose from. Different layouts are made available when the bingo paper is cut from a master sheet.

Choose from a single card (1S1) up to a full 36 ON (36S6) sheet (36 cards). Combine different cuts and colours with the different series to add variety and excitement to your bingo sessions.

The following are examples of master sheet sizes: a 24 ON layout has 24 bingo faces on a sheet, a 30 ON layout has 30 faces on a sheet, and a 36 ON layout has 36 faces on a sheet.

Off Cuts

Certain cuts come naturally from certain master sheets; other cuts (as in a 15H5 taken from a 36 ON layout) require an off-cut, which can be packed together, separately, or discarded.

An off-cut refers to bingo faces that remain when a master sheet is cut into a desired ON. For instance, if the master sheet is a 24 ON vertical and you order a 9 ON sheet, the result will be two 9 ON cuts equaling 18 faces, and an off-cut totaling six faces (6V1) to complete the 24 faces on the sheet.
