lurked for awhile

I'm running a K20 and like it alot so far..I mostly use it for crime scene documentation..and casual home use. i currently have the Vivitar 285HV flash for digital cameras. I sense that a metz flash maybe in my future.
I just purchased a Sigma 70mm macro for mostly evidence collection and forensic work at 1:1. I didnt realize that when you focus at 1:1 you change the magnification ratio..oh well nice glass anyway. The problem I am having is trying to print a 1:1 photo. In other words..If i take a pic of something that is 5 inches long at 1:1, io would like it to print out at 5 inches.

Any suggestions?

You should probably post your question in the general photo or printing sections for more help, but the idea is that if you print at the correct dpi, you'll get the life-size print.
