What size paper do you use and what page size are you using on 
Scribus? If you want your personal desktop local printer to print the 
card image centered on the page then the page size in Scribus must be 
the same as the paper in the printer and the image must be centered on 
that Scribus page.

I always create a pdf and print from Acrobat Reader, not Scribus.
