You can use the 'cpi' (characters per inch) and 'lpi' (lines per inch)
options to modify this font.

System->Adminstration->Printing
Click on the printer
Select the Job Options tab
Select 'cpi' from the drop-down list and click Add
Adjust to taste
Select 'lpi' from the drop-down list and click Add
Adjust to taste
