I think the problem is the ppi you are using.  You probably have the ppi set to 300.  If you change it to 72 ppi, you can get your precise size.  But, I'm not sure what that will do to the quality of what you are printing.  I suggest you contact your printing company for their advice.  I imagine they can handle the slightly different size at 300 ppi.

. . . .  You can also use the crop tool itself with a custom dimension.  The resulting ppi will be an uneven number.  So I still think you need to contact the printing service.
