**You will want to Download the file and then print the .pdf file.  When you print, make sure that scaling is turned off enabling the document to print at 100%.  Take a moment to measure.  The dashed horizontal lines on sections A, B, D or F should measure 6-1/2".  If you print directly from the Google Docs screen you might come out with a slightly smaller sized block.**
