Printer drivers are programs developed to translate the language of an application to a language the printer can understand. You must have a driver installed to print. Printer drivers also allow users to manipulate the settings, which control printer output. Typically these settings vary from product to product but generally they include options for such things as paper handling, tray selection, and default font.

3. Change your format This is the last resort. In general, printer drivers behave better on simpler tasks. If you have designed a format on the screen, it may well have background shading that you don't really need, and removing it may make life simpler for the printer driver. There is no guarantee, but it can be worth trying.
