I'm going to be that it's a mapping mode problem.  If you're printer is using the pDC->SetMapMode( MM_TWIPS ) for example, then all of your coordinates need to be multiplied by 1440.  

Here's a snipplet of some code that I use to display stuff on the printer.  Notice the MapMode conversion.

BITMAP bm;
pLogo.GetBitmap( &bm );

CPoint ptSize( bm.bmWidth, bm.bmHeight );      
pDC->DPtoLP( &ptSize );      

CPoint ptOrg(0,0);
pDC->DPtoLP(&ptOrg );   // Create a memory DC compatible with the destination DC

CDC pMemDC;
pMemDC.CreateCompatibleDC( pDC );
pMemDC.SetMapMode( pDC->GetMapMode() );      
 
CBitmap* pOldBitmap = (CBitmap*) pMemDC.SelectObject( &pLogo );
