In the printer properties, click on the Features tab.

Under the Paper Size Options, choose Custom.

If you do not see a Custom option in the Size drop down menu, your printer's driver does not support custom sizes. For some reason as yet unknown, HP removed this feature from many printers starting in 2013. See a Potential Fix to Correct a Custom Size Option.

Set the width and height of your custom paper size. Name the size and click OK. It will be available in the Paper Size listing above for future print jobs.

* Important Tip - the smaller paper dimension is ALWAYS the width. The larger dimension is always the height.
