Is there a way to create a disk image of my whole system?

Say I have my system installed and set up the way I want it, is there a way I can copy it to an image to save in case I would want to restore it later?
My HDD is using about 100 GB of space right now, if I create an image would it be the same size? Is there a way to compress it to possibly save on a disk? Or would the image always be about the same size as the actual system?
I'm using Mint 17 Cinnamon (not sure if it matters if you know the OS for this question).
