HELP! Getting really small font using TEXTOUT

I am trying to write a program that prints labels

I have the mechanics of the program working, but the font is coming
out REAL small (as in less than a 1/10 of an inch).

Has anyone seen anything similar?

The printer is a HP 6MP (600 by 600 DPI).

Thanks!

Sounds like a problem with your mapping mode.

The font prints characters with the same pixels as on screen, as screen pixels
are approx 96 / inch and your printer is 600 / inch it should be about
one-sixth the size.

Mapping Mode sorts this out.
