Not sure what this document won't print the entire file.  When I do print preview, I can see the full file.  When it goes to print, it chops off first 3 lines (business, website, address).  Please advise.

Your top and bottom margins are too small. Remove some lines, increase the top and bottom margins and possibly also side margins and it should print fine.

Simply removing lines and increasing margins does work. I printed the whole thing. But word continues to bark about margins.

Set margins top, bottom and sides to 1" all around and reformat the document.

If you go to Page Setup -  Paper, you will see you're using a Custom Size paper, 9.44 x 12.22 inches. If you had that size paper in your printer it would print as previewed. If you're using Letter size paper, 8.5 x 11, this document will need two pages to print.

As I already noted above, remove a line or two to fix sizing and I printed it just fine on a normal printer (8.5x11)

This certainly isn't normal behavior for Word.  The purpose of print preview is  to see how it will print...
If it were me, I would see if resetting defaults would work...of course you would want to make sure you  can reestablish any customizations that you use.
I am assuming word 2007 ...13...here is a link that gives directions for setting the default setting in word...it can save a lot of time in situations like this.

Another approach is to do a repair on word.  I will find a link for that.

Thanks all. For some reason, my paper was set to a larger size.  I put to normal size, restructured a couple lines and all is well.  Didn't work used to have the "fit to one sheet" icon ?  What happened to that?  I am using Word  for Mac 2011 version.

Thanks for the update. There are some minor differences between Windows and MAC versions of Office. I used Word 2013 to alter your document to print properly.
