Your file size is not huge.

If you were sending this to a printing press, it would need to be 300dpi (dpi = dots per inch or ppi=pixels per inch)... and CYMK
(which is why Indesign or Illustrator are traditionally used for layout)

If your document is 5 x 7... multiply 5 x 300 = 1500 and 7 x 300 = 2100...

Hence your pixel size would 1500 x 2100.

For desktop printing, 150dpi should be okay, but 200 dpi wouldn't be a bad idea. BUT for text heavy items, 300 dpi would improve legibility.
