Feel free to print out this table for your phone book. If each chart does not fit on a single piece of paper, you can make this happen by reducing the text size on your screen before printing. You can re-size the text on your screen in your web browser by holding down the CTRL key (or the Command key for a Mac) and then pressing the + or - key (without using the SHIFT key).
