Print word documents for a lesser size page

Created an MS Word document intended for 8.5 X 11 paper. Want to print same document to same size page but can be cut so that the printed page can fit a lesser size envelope... Lets say 6" inches in width. Would also want a font that approximates the original size.

Guidance sought..,

Re: smaller page

In reply to: Print word documents for a lesser size page

If the paper is the same size, but you only want print, say, the top left part, just set the bottom and right margins to an appropiate (larger) value. Those margins will stay blank then.

With the same font, you'll get many more pages. The smaller you make the font, the less pages you get.
