Did you  remove the "scale image to ...." thingy in your PDF viewer?

That thing has hit me so many times when printing labels PDF labels.

The only reason is that it works.  I tried a PDF created with
Libreoffice, and the labels didn't print correctly, though they were
shown in the PDF file just fine.

I'm very much open for a better solution :)
