You can order custom sizes by using the Any Trim Size (Edit Below) option in the pricing calculator. First select the standard size option which is larger in both dimensions (height and width) than your desired custom size.

Please remember if you are ordering Any Trim Size for a product that is folded, Any Trim Size dimensions are for the product before it is folded.
