TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Along these same lines, I was going to ask if she's printing to an HP printer using the HP PS drivers. Try printing with the PCL drivers. I run into this sometimes on the same machine. I haven't spent the time to find out why the print jobs bomb (probably a graphic, that seems to most often cause the problems). Of course, when I print using PCL I get wierd letter spacing which often elicits comments from my reviwers. :-)

Subject: RE: any printing experts?
What brand and model of printer is giving you guff, and does it have the
latest drivers? What kind of drivers does it have, i.e. PCL 3, PCL 5,
Adobe PostScript, non-Adobe PostScript?
See what happens if you print the PDF "as image."
