OfficeJet K60 - prints slanted on pages?

I'm filling out these forms for Rotary Youth Exchange, but when I print out the pages, I notice that the right side is higher than the left side when they should be even distances from the top. I'm using ptal with cups, and I noticed that it's slanted for whatever I print, but it's just that much more noticable when you have a solid bar across the header. I think the printer might be rotating the printing dimentions a tad, and it shows up when you print something that's a full page in length. I also noticed that Mozilla will only let a maximum boarder of .5" and won't let me have a 1" boarder, like other programs, but I have a feeling that is a software problem there, and not to do with my printer.

So, I guess my situation boils down to this:

Is there a way I can get the printer to print straight, or do I have to use Windows for any formal documents?


I suppose I should also mention that when I run the "calibrate" command directly from the printer (no communication to the computer) the lines are equal distant from the top of the page.
