Different paper size. Fine art print sizes

The Difference between paper size around the world. PART 1

Many people get confused when they are at the local printing store, and you ask to print something, And they start blebbering on paper size type of paper quality, the weight of the paper in grams, what you like to print on, and on, and on. 
When I started my business I thought that drawing was natural to me, but when it comes to printing? Mmmmm... 
Honestly it took me months to understand it, because they don't really explain it to you as it should be, and something I still don't understand.  Really if you want to understand it all, you have to work there for years.
Well I try to explain it in my own words.
Let's say there are two standard paper sizes,
 "The standard paper size in North America" used primarily in the United States, Canada and in Philippines. 
ANSI "America Nation Standards Institute" and then there is  
"A-Series International Standard Paper Size". That uses the rest around the world, other words ISO "International Organizations for Standardization" 
Well I live in Italy I use ISO "A-Series International Standard Paper Size".
