Personally, the trick is finding out the 1:1 dimensions of the item in question, size the image to match, then reduce the item in an image processing program, photoshop, by 16.667%. I've had very good luck with this technique.

Same trick can be applied to basic painter accessory program that came bundled with the PC. That requires a little adjustments as it is a very clunky to work with.

set the menu item "image/attribute" to the size your graphic to 1:1 demensions, paste the graphic in and adjust the handles until it fits the image area correctly.
Then select all and use the menu item "image / stretch/skew" and enter 17% for the 2 stretch fields because the software only accept integer percentages.

Now your image is scaled, but there's only 1 so repeat "image/attributes" to fit your paper size and use the select tool to marqee off the graphic, copy & paste, arrange to fill up your sheet, then send a test sheet to see how it looks before printing on your materials.
