My printer is asking for 300 DPI JPEGS for some business cards.  The size needs to be 3.75" x 2.25".  I have an EPS file that is currently that size, but when I save it as a JPG at 300 DPI, my printer is telling me it is actually only 3.5" x 2".  Is he looking at it wrong, or should I be doing something in Photoshop besides "Save As > JPEG" with my EPS file?  Why would Photoshop cut off a quarter inch on each side?

you must have created the EPS file in illustrator
do not open the EPS directly in PS, just create a new document in PS of desired size with 300dpi
and then copy paste your business card contents from illustrator to ps as smart object
save it as jpeg now
it should be of the same size now when opened in any system, whether pc or mac

Or open the file in Illustrator and Export as a jpeg. It will ask you the resolution and quality settings.
