Does anyone know how to reduce the size of the page borders in latex? This is so I can reduce the number of pages my essay covers.

Thanks!

The hard way is to painstakingly follow the diagrams in multiple LaTeX documents that describe page layout.

There is a much easier way: Use the geometry package. For example, to have your text in a 6.5 inch by 8.75 inch block (1 inch horizontal margins, 1.25 inch vertical margins), use

\RequirePackage[text={6.5in,8.75in},centering]{geometry}

One of such diagrams is here; I found it useful sometimes.

The geometry package seems awesome. Thanks for pointing that out!
