An unusual problem: my USA standard size sheet protectors are too small to hold LFT scenarios. These are 8 1/2 x 11 inches. I ordered legal sized sheet protectors and these are too long at the top. So, which are the correct ones I need?

Don't they print on A4 paper? I haven't checked but it seems the reasonable option (and one that is the standard in almost all countries worldwide)

Often, all the printing is in a 8.5x11" space and one can trim off the excess white paper. Just make sure before you cut.

I just trim mine with a rotary trimmer, nice straight lines. Use standard American sheet protectors. 99% of the time you trim nothing but white space. Occasionally you might touch the top of the title or bottom sentence of the aftermatch if they really filled the page, but nothing of consequence.

Leave a bit hanging out of the protector.
When paper hangs out of page protectors in my experience it tends to get raggedy. Personally I scan the originals, crop and print copies on letter-size paper. That way I have backup too. Only rarely do I have problems with the text being outside the printable area on my printer, and then I just shrink the image a bit.

I recently discovered that my scanner has a setting to scan A4 documents so I know that it will scan everything.

When I went to ASLOK, I left a heap of A4 page protectors there for folk. Multipunched as wellso will work on 2, 3, 4 or more ring binders. The letter sized US ones seem to all be 3 ring punched although Michael Rodgers had some multi punched lettersized ones sso they do exist.

You might be right but cut or trim the scenario card is criminal offende to the ASL universe. Yoda would never approve something like that.....
I scan the scenario card and store it away. I never cut or trim a scenario card.

I just got four boxes of multi-punched letter-size. It depends on the manufacturer. I wasn't particularly looking for multi-punched because I have 3 ring binders but that's what I got.

My impression is that most if not all scanners are large enough for A4, and they scan the whole scan bed. I know I have to trim my scans down to get letter-size images. I have a couple of scripts that do that for me. Since the scanned format from my scanner is .pnm, which is about the largest possible file size (or so it seems), I also convert to .png in the script then discard the .pnm.

Amazon also has A4 sized binders and document protectors.

I bought A4 protectors for the European stuff. Interestingly enough when I ran out of letter size page protectors I found that the letter-size pages will fit into A4 page protectors.
