Sounds like a printer driver problem. Does your printer support Postscript? If so use the postscript driver.

I've got a Brother Monochrome Laser Printer and using the PCL driver or the Native driver I have occasional problems but haven't had problems using their Postscript (clone) driver.

Good Luck,
