There is no such thing as 11×14 paper

After an exhaustive rainy Saturday search of commercial paper makers, I have come to learn there is no such thing as 11×14 paper. This is, of course, why so many people who sponsor initiatives just jump up to 11×17 (here and here). The current size makes no sense, it does not reflect any sort of paper reality.

This also explains why so many people, when they talk about the minimum standard in Washington for initiative petitions, they mistakenly say 11×17.
