Page orientation to Landacape, Print to larger paper size (Legal), use smaller fonts.  We have to print very small fonts on wide paper for some clients that insist on everything on one page.  That is all you can really do other than make it so it can export to Excel or somewhere that they can force it to print to 1 page wide, but it just does the same thing, makes the fonts very, very, small.

Other thing you could do for columns that hold small amounts of data but have large titles, use multiple lines for the column headers.

I typically will group all my dates together and have two headers the first would say "Date Information" or something to that effect and have the dates below in short form.

on a very rare occasion i will use a shortform for a column name and explain it in the page footer.  some of our datasets have a "probability" field which is just a number between 1-9, rather than use all the space for "probability" i call the column *P and indicate on the footer that *P means Probability, most users understand.

I also find your choice of font really makes a difference,  Times New Roman at 8pt looks a lot different on paper than Arial 8pt, etc.
