Page Size: 3.4" x 5.5"

Margins: 0.1" all around

Font Size: Set to your preference. I used Times New Roman at 10pt. I think it is a bit large, so I probably could have used 9pt.

I created the DOCX file then exported it to a PDF.

I attached two screenshots of the resulting file as displayed on my NC. One uses 10pt Times New Roman and the second uses 9pt Arial Rounded MT Bold.

EDIT: I incorrectly stated that font sizes but have edited them accordingly.
Thank you so much for this tip!!! I have been looking forever for one that is easy to understand!!!
