Converting to PDF but font too large :( Help!

Using Calibre, I've been trying to convert my kindle books to PDF so I can then print them out. I want a PDF file to print because I have to go to an outside printing service, and that is the file they can print best.

No matter how I tweak things, the font in the conversion is way too big and I end up with a PDF file that is over 1,000 pages long, with huge type. Have tried this with several different kindle books. Most of them are .azw files. Please help somebody!
Many thanks.
