I am trying to create a graphic that is a particular size. I use the rulers to measure the artwork, but when I print it out, it is quite a bit smaller than what I need. Any idea as to what I am doing wrong?

when you go to print make sure that the options are not set to fit to printer margins.

and that you have it set to do not scale.

thats the only thing I can think of.

Tim,

you either didn't measure it right or print settings are not ok.

Go to Select > All and look at measures (W & H)  in Transform Palette. There you can see the real size of your artwork. If the artwork is exactly the same size as you want, then something's wrong with the print settings. In Print window check scaling settings and Setup Settings (Crop Artwork To section).
