It sounds as if your scan dpi and printing dpi differs. Make sure that your scanned image has the same dpi as the printer. Most scanners scan can easily scan at 300 dpi, but default to 72. Most printers default printer setting is 72, which will cause problems when printing.
You can set the scan size to manual. Let's keep it simple, say 100 dpi. Now, when you've scanned the image, and are ready to print it, see if there's an option to set the print dpi. Some printers don't have this option, and you might have to readjust the scanned dpi to accomodate the printer.
This entire ordeal is trickier than it sounds! I've seen some printers "auto adjust" and have no problems at all, while I've seen other printers be the biggest pain in the butt about printing correct (desired) sizes! My best advice is to go into your settings for the printer (after you've scanned) and play with the options in it. This may take a few (or a lot!) of test prints to figure it out. Once you figure it out, write it down so you don't forget!
Let us know if this works for you or not. If not, then we'll continue to help you!
Hope this helps!
