Here's how I do it, I'm sure there's many other ways but this is what works for me. Save the PCB layout to your computer and open it - mine opens it in PDF, I copy the image and I paste it into Microsoft Word because when you put an image in word, it doesn't resize it when you print it. I edit the image and change the dimensions - for the case of the sea urchin Brian has it listed as being 2.025" square, so i resize it to that. I use Word because I than will copy that resized image and paste it several times on a page so if I screw up the transfer, i've got a few more on hand.
