Slow Print Time

I have an HPLJ5 color printer with HP Color LaserJet 5 driver.  When sending a file with a bar chart, a pie chart, and some text formatting (a total of 10 pages), it takes a full 20 minutes to print.  The print job is first spooled to a print server using LPR daemon to direct job to the printer port(the printer NIC's IP address).  The print processor is winprint and the datatype is NT EMF 1.003.  The size of the file(which is Word by the way) is 1.28MB.  But, this seems to be a default size selected at the spooler if the actual file exceeds a certain size.  IE a 400KB file and a 600KB file show up in the queue as 1.28MB.  My user has to print 5000 reports and 20Min per isn't going to work.....help    any ideas?
