The trick to creating a logo for print is to first compute its size in the
print resolution.  For example, if you need a 150 DPI 5"x6" print, then you
need to create an image of (5*150)x(6*150) = 750 x 850 pixels.  This is the
size of the image must be no matter what resolution you set for that image.

If you created a 72DPI image that was 482 pixels tall and then change the
DPI to 150, the print will be pretty small.  If you want exactly the same
dimensions on the screen (at 72DPI, 482 pixels) as on the printed page, you
need to scale the image by (150/72) = 2.083 times.  Therefore your new
height needs to be 1004 pixels.
