OK, I printed it out with KPDF, and it came out what I would have defined as 
perfectly.  Everything was on the page, and it was perfectly legible.

Then I installed Acroread, and printed it from there.  There is a very 
negligible difference.

Let's see...  Solid boxes in the four corners.  Width.

KPDF printout:  0.260"
Adobe printout:  0.249"

Width of all the hollow boxes for Appartment No/Private Mailbox.

KPDF:  2.61"
Adobe:  2.51"

(Yes, I got out my dial calipers.  Whee!)

So the Adobe printout is actually just a little smaller and more compact for 
me.  I don't think I would have noticed the difference if I hadn't been 
looking for it though.
