printing is smaller

I designed a graphic on Paint. When I tried to print it, it came out smaller than it was when I sized it on Paint. Does anybody know why that's happening?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

Try to copy it to word, make it bigger there, see on the print preview to see if it is big enough, and then try printing.

I don't know why that's happening in Paint, but another suggestion, if you're using Microsoft Office, is to open the image in Microsoft Office Picture Manager (which is already on your system), which makes it very easy to change the size of the image to whatever size you want, before you print it.
