Ideally you should set up your printer to print a cropped pdf...

Use \centering in stead if the center environment to avoid
attitional vertical space.

Use the crop tool in Acrobat or pdfcrop from CTAN

If you prefer a GUI try TpX <http://tpx.sourceforge.net/>.

Alternatively you can use the bb and clip options to
\includegraphics.
