You need to match your scan resolution to the printer resolution. If you want 1:1 printing at, say, 300DPI then you should scan at 300DPI. If you scan at 1200DPI and print at 300 DPI your printout will be 4x larger.

Conversely if you scan at 300DPI and print at 1200 DPI your image will shrink to 1/4 the size.

Also make sure that you don't have "fit to page" or somesuch selected. This will expand/contract the scanned image to fit the page no matter what. Large scans will lose detail, small scans will look blocky. Use 1:1 thru the entire signal chain for best results.

Scan size is hard to guess on the screen. Your image on the monitor is almost impossible to get 1:1 with the "real" thing if the printout is *also* 1:1.
