Plot Image Size

Recently, I needed to compare a Mathematica generated plot to a
hardcopy.  I wanted to printout the Mathematica plot on a "vu-graph"
and use it to overlay the hardcopy.  I had to continually resize the
plot until the scales of both the Mathematica plot and the hardcopy
matched.    I even tried to use the on-screen ruler.  The ruler proved
cumbersome.  Does anyone know an efficient way to set the image size of
a plot upon printout given the expected length or width?
