Sprint Layout is the easiest software to use by far. I'm struggling to understand that you could not see how to print your work from within the program.

On the print screen at the left and bottom choice, make sure on Scaling you click next to 1:1. This setting is default, you must have changed it and that's why you see small.

Download and install Bulzip PDF. It's free and installs like a 'printer'.
Then when you print, select the Bullzip printer and you can select PDF, JPG, PNG, whatever. The result is a file in that format. You can then or later print it to a real printer on paper.

Edit: works with ANY program, not just PCB layout.

Send me your email. I put together a few years back a two parts article on how to make PCB. My email is bergeron.syl@videotron.qc.ca

I would suggest that you use the free version of Eagle PCB. It is one of the best, and a lot of design on this forum use it.

Bye.
