Success! using Acrobat Reader 8, I found the following steps the most useful and intuitive to obtain the desired results to print the BSG booklet created by vicmackey187 into a size that fits inside the season box slots of the big box:
Print Range pages 2-33
Page Scaling: Multiple pages per sheet -> Pages per sheet 2
Page Order: Horizontal
Under Printer Properties:
Duplex: Open to Top (the "top" of the portrait page)
Document size 8.5" x 11"
Select Zoom of 95%
Yeah, the Orientation as Portrait is a little non-intuitive, but it seems to not mess up the page ordering as a result.
As a result, it will print on 8.5"x 11" paper, but will not "fill the page" - instead the size is about 95% of full, which seems to be just right for slotting in behind a season box in the original packaging. The image prints about 9.75" wide for two pages, about 6.25" tall.
For inserting staples, assuming you do not have a long-lever stapler, fold open a regular desk stapler and place the stacked pages on a firm low-pile carpet - the staples will go through the paper and "into" the carpet, but the firmness of the carpet can support the paper. You just have to fold the staples over yourself. You might want to practice if you've never done that before - it can be tough keeping the pages aligned while fiddling with the stapler. You can also use a sheet of firm styrofoam or similar material.
This is what worked for me. YMMV. Different versions of Acrobat Reader have different print set-up interfaces. Try a trial page first (e.g. pages 2-5). This is using the v3.0 file, where the instructions are on page 1 and the document order shuffled to match booklet printing order (i.e. not natural page order).
Hope this helps,
