In the United States, Tobacconist Magazine has called roll-your-own (RYO) the tobacco industry's fastest growing segment. It estimates that 2-4% of US cigarette smokers, or approximately 2.6 million people, make their own cigarettes. Many of these smokers have switched in response to increasingly high taxes on manufactured cigarettes.

Most manufacturers who sell in the USA use the designations 1 (Single wide), 1 1/4 size, 1 1/2 size, King Size and "Doublewide" (2 or 2.0) in connection with cigarette rolling papers. However, within the industry, these designations have slightly different meanings. Across the various brands of cigarette papers the actual widths of the papers using these designations vary greatly. For example, the 1 1/4designation is used with papers having widths ranging from about 1.7 inches to 2 inches, and the 1 1/2 designation is used with papers having widths ranging from around 2.4 to 3 inches. However the length of these papers is always 78mm (+/- 1mm). 1 1⁄4 is also known as "Spanish Size" or "French" in parts of the world.

While a 1 1⁄4 sized paper is not exactly 25% larger than a 1 (single wide) paper, there is meaning to these size names. A better way to describe these accurately is that a 1 1⁄4 is designed to roll a cigarette that contains about 25% more filler than a single wide paper. Similarly a 1 1⁄2 size paper is designed to roll a cigarette that contains about 50% more than a single wide paper. A 1 1⁄4 size paper is larger than a 1 (single wide) paper and naturally a 1 1⁄2 size paper is larger than a 1 1⁄4 size paper, and a double wide is larger than a 1 1⁄2 size paper.
