For some reason the default magnification for the "Printout" style is
0.72. Therefore a 12 point font would look like a 9 point font when

To change the Printout style you could edit the stylesheet and create
a new input cell and select the cell bracket and then go Cell > Show
Expression from the menu and paste in this:

Cell[StyleData[All, "Printout"],

then do Cell > Show Expression again.

Alternatively you could set the print magnification locally in your
notebook with this:

StyleDefinitions ->
Notebook[{Cell[StyleData[StyleDefinitions -> "Default.nb"]],
Cell[StyleData[All, "Printout"], Magnification -> 1]}]]
