try the following code snippet



Procedure Print_Bitmap(Bitmap : TBitmap; X, Y : Integer);
                              var
                                Info : PBitmapInfo;
                                InfoSize : Integer;
                                Image : TmemoryStream;
                                ImageSize : Longint;
                              begin
                                with Bitmap do
                                  begin
                                    GetDIBSizes(Handle, InfoSize, ImageSize);
                                    Info := MemAlloc(InfoSize);
                                    image := Tmemorystream.Create;
                                    try
                                      image.SetSize(Imagesize);
                                    try
                                      GetDIB(Handle, Palette, Info^, Image.Memory^);
                                      with Info^.bmiHeader do
                                        StretchDIBits(Printer.Canvas.Handle, X, Y, Width,
                                                              Height, 0, 0, biWidth, biHeight,
                              Image.memory, Info^,
                                                             DIB_RGB_COLORS, SRCCOPY);
                                    finally
                                      try
                                        image.free;
                                      except
                                      end;
                                    end;
                                  finally
                                    try
                                      FreeMem(Info, InfoSize);
                                    except
                                    end;
                                  end;
                                end;
                              end;
