How can I measure a print's brightness?

Image Post-Processing & Printing - www.cambridgeincolour.com
I have been using a commercial printing firm for some time and they have produced good prints that fit my expectations. However, the last batch of four prints came out too dark My monitor is calibrated and I checked it afterwards and it was right, with a brightness of 119 candela/sq metre (if I have the units right). The recommended is 120.

Is there a way of actually measuring the print instead of just looking at it to see if it matches my digital image? The only way i can think of is to use a scanner which has been calibrated with a known print, if such a thing exists.
