Printing a custom size page in Java

I need to print a custom size page on a tractor fed dotmatrix impact printer.  Everything I've ever seen seems to print to standard page sizes.  I want to print a batch run to a custom size - therefore the printer just advances the appropriate amoutn each time and does the next perforated page.

I can print everything fine on A4 on a different printer (so no trouble with the general printing stuff) but how do I set the custom page size?

Thanks

try:

PrintRequestAttributeSet pras = new HashPrintRequestAttributeSet();
pras.add(new MediaSize(x, y, units));
pras.add(new MediaPrintableArea(x, y, w, h, units));
