oversize

adj. ~ Larger than normal.

Notes: 

'Oversize' often describes materials that cannot be stored in standard-sized housings. What is standard varies from repository to repository, although many consider anything too large to fit in a document box to be oversize. Oversize materials are often stored flat or rolled on a supporting tube. 'Oversized' is sometimes used as a noun to represent the class of larger-than-normal materials.
