Printer Problems

I have been using Sibelius since V1 and I have created my own template for big band extracted parts with 10mm borders all around. I have printed hundreds of charts over the years using a HP 2550L Color Laser printer with no problems. Eventually HP broke down and I bought a new Brother HL-L2305W mono laser printer which is good enough though the print is not as 'strong' as the HP. However the major problem is that the Brother refuses to print my 10mm margins from Sibelius making them 15mm. I then found if I made the parts into a PDF they printed correctly but in recent times the PDF is now printing 15mm margins even though it looks correct in the preview. My question is therefore can somebody recommend a mono laser printer that will do the job correctly printing from Sibelius? I tried Brother for help but they had no solutions.

Go back to HP. Any mono laserjet will do the job and do it reliably for years and years.

Or perhaps, try exporting as a bitmap and see how that prints.
