I ran into a problem a few months ago where the page won't print as layed out 
on the screen. Even the PDF looked fine, but the printout was shifted. After 
much frustration I found the answer. You may be encountering the same issue.

Some (all??) printers will not print edge-to-edge. Some claim they will, but 
in the printer itself is a fit-to-page option. My printer has this hard 
coded. So if I try to print something with margins too small, the printer 
will be "helpful" and automatically shrink the page. This is what was 
throwing the margins off for me. This "feature" was only documented in the 
technical reference, which was not included with the printer.
Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
