You would do better to use image>duplicate and image>size.
Start by unchecking the resample box, and setting desired print size (actual
print size, not paper size).
If the resulting resolution is greater than 240ppi, print it. Generally the
minimum resolution for printing might be 150ppi, but many would disagree and
a good number would recommend at least 200ppi.
