I am interested in uploading a print and play game. I know at one point there was some sort of guide (i.e., what format is best, how to make it easier for players to print/cut/etc.) but I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where it is? If not, what is the best way of doing it?

This is a good resource:

TrueKid Games - Prototyping Resources

Contains both links to material suppliers as well as a lot of basic how-to's for various types of components.

I guess I'm looking more for the BGG guide--i.e., should I use PDFs? Word documents? What should margins be like? Things like that.

Here's the BGG Wiki on PnP games:

Print and Play Games | Wiki

And just in case it may be of use, here's another external guide on creating PnP games:
