Do you know of any latex example or a package that I could use to print a pocket sized paper? All records will have a format like this:

| name | phone | e-mail |

It would contain only 15 records for now so I think an A6 or A7 would be a good paper size.

UPDATE: It would be nice to have cropping marks to help me cutting the A6 or A7 paper shape. I would like to fill an A4 paper with those pocket-sized phone books and then cut them for my 15 friends in the list.

It seems as if the directory package could do this for you (although I've never used it). –  Thorsten Jun 11 '11 at 13:59

Cant u just make a file like this on a6 paper:

\begin{tabbing}
namename \= phonephone \= email \kill
John Doe \> 555-555 \> johndoe@hotmail.com \\
\end{tabbing}


Or with a simple table?

\begin{tabular}{p{1.5cm}p{1.5cm}p{1.5cm} }
John Doe & 555-555 & johndoe@hotmail.com \\
\end{tabular}
\end{document}


My testfile:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{wasysym}
\usepackage{marvosym}
\usepackage[dutch]{babel}
\usepackage{geometry}
\geometry{
paperwidth=4.13in,
paperheight=5.83in,
margin=2em,
bottom=1.5em,
}
\usepackage[cam, a4]{crop}
\begin{document}
\crop[cross]
\begin{tabbing}
name name name \= phonephone \= email \kill
\male \ John Doe \> \phone \ 555-555 \> \Letter\ johndoe@hotmail.com \\
\end{tabbing}

\begin{tabular}{p{2cm}p{2cm}p{2cm} }
\male \ John Doe & \phone \ 555-555 &\Letter johndoe@hotmail.com \\
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

thx but, if it's possible, can you post the complete latex code? –  microspino Jun 11 '11 at 13:52
Added =) This works for u? –  Elmer Jun 11 '11 at 13:53
Sure, It's a start. So you got my +1, but I'm searching for a little more :) like cropping marks and some symbol (a phone and a mail envelope for example) –  microspino Jun 11 '11 at 14:01
U can do so using the tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/marvosym/marvodoc.pdf package –  Elmer Jun 11 '11 at 14:05
@microspino: most often you can't expect a solution custom-tailored for your needs that is already made -- especially if you didn't specify what you really wanted in the first place. Telephone and mail symbols are really easy to add (ctan.ijs.si/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive/…, or tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/fonts/psfonts/marvosym/marvodoc.pdf as Elmer suggested). What kind of cropping marks did you want? You might consider editing your question to include those additional requirements. As-is, you have been given a complete, simple and useful answer. –  ipavlic Jun 11 '11 at 14:09

+1 for alternating row colors. thx –  microspino Jun 11 '11 at 14:04
You could also look at auto-generating the table using the datatool package, say from a .csv original. (That of course is most useful for bigger tables.) –  Joseph Wright Jun 11 '11 at 14:38
Nice answer, not sure about the gender symbol if needed or not, seems a bit unecessary. I would also suggest a clickable mail address. –  Yiannis Lazarides Jun 11 '11 at 19:06
So that is how you can spend so much time here, xport! You are in fact six people at the same time! Nice answer, by the way. –  Harold Cavendish Jun 11 '11 at 19:19
As you're already using marvosym at any rate, I suggest using its \Male and \Female symbols instead of \Mars and \Venus. This would be semantically cleaner and I think the astronomical symbols, which you're using, would have an odd look for gender symbols, they look more like the letter "O" with something attached to it rather than a circle with something. –  doncherry Aug 3 '11 at 18:38
