The best way to create custom page sizes is to use Windows Forms. Select Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes -> File Menu -> Server Properties -> Forms Tab.
Give the form a name and a Width/height. REMEMBER that Width is ALWAYS the shortest edge -- unless you want trouble. If Width actually is larger than Height, then use Landscape mode instead. By doing so you get rid of using the Custom PostScript Size page property in the print menu; also the new form will be added to ALL printers on your system that support custom paper sizes. Cheers.
