My printer is printing in huge letters even though I have gone to Settings and decreased the font size all the way.

The printer is not generally aware of what is it printing.

 

Not sure about the iPhone X - I'm not sure where you are changing the font size in iPad printing.

Where are the Settings ?

 

What else?

Web pages in particular might be viewed at a higher magnification than the web page "100%" size to make a page viewable / readable on a small screen.  If you send that magnified page to the printer, the printer will print what you send.

 

Set the webpage "view" at no more than 100% size of that page, then submit to Print.

 

What else?

Here is where it can get weird (complicated, irritating).

If nothing at all works,

If the document / webpage you are trying to print won't cooperate,

Save the content to a file (for example, Pages)

Change the font size in that document

Save the document and then print the saved / edited document.

 

What else?

No idea - this is what I know from fighting with odd / off sized printing in my iPad Pro.
