I also occasionally do US letter size cards, two up in landscape view and
have had the same problem with what I set-up on the screen not printing
accurately, either directly from Scribus or a PDF. The entire design was
shifted to one side approximately 1/4 inch when printed.
The solution I found was to Export the file as an Image, which Scribus saves
as a PNG. (File/Export/Save as Image). This gives me very good
screen-to-paper reproduction and accurate color reproduction. I do still
have to make minor adjustments, but nothing as drastic as before. I'm using
Scribus 1.3.7 on a Mac running 10.5.8. The cardstock I use is Avery 8315
with my own "template".
