You can use a tabular environment. Here you can set the width of the
columns and also that of the rules (\arrayrulewidth effects | and
\hline). Longtable offers a continued table which can be split by
\newpage on pages. The vertical height can be influenced by invisible
rulers (only height, zero width}, in every cell if necessary (and
each one can have a lift to position text or whatever). With geometry
you can remove all space consuming headers, footers, margins.

Another option is to provide many columns (of standard width?) and
then use \multicolumn to have on this or on that side more width than
on the other.
