Question Aghh Image Attribute Sizes???

Ok I am seriously confused. My fish tank top broke, so I am buying a new custom cut glass cover. I designed it in AutoCad, with all of the correct dimensions and all (in inches).

So then I copy the simple design into ms paint, and resize it and I need to print it ACTUAL size (it is 23" x 11.75"). So I paste it, and then expand it so that it is the exact size shown above.

I print it out, and it's too small, even though MSPaint attributes says the image is 23" x 11.75". It printed out at like 17.2" x 7.2" which is scaled correctly, but too small!

I have the MSPaint settings set to do EXACTLY size shown, no scaling down or anything.

So then I try the same with irfanview, expanding it to the correct dimensions, and I print it out, but yet again it is too small (but this time a little bit bigger than the mspaint version)

But in both of these, I put 23x11.75! Could someone please let me know why the attributes listings are incorrect and how I can get it to print the EXACT dimensions I specify?

I realize this is a weird problem but I really need help.

Thanks
