Face dimensions of 1x1 and 1x2 tiles?

Howdy.

Does anyone know the *exact* dimensions of the face of a 1x1 and 1x2 tile? I need to create a bunch of tiny stickers for these pieces but can't find exact dimensions online. I don't have sophisticated enough measuring equipment to find out myself.

I need the dimension to the tenth of a millimetre if possible.

Thanks!

    The nominal size of a 1x1 brick (excluding stud) is 8.0mm wide, 8.0mm deep, and 9.6mm tall; I say nominal, as that ignores the small gaps between bricks (they shave off ~0.1mm on each exposed side to aid fit between the bricks).

    So, a 1x1 tile should have a face area of 7.8mm by 7.8mm, and a 1x2 tile a face area of 7.8mm by 15.8mm. In reality the practical size will be slightly less than that due to the curved edges around the top.
