Exporting label report to pdf changes alignment - why?

When I create labels in CRV10, then export them to .pdf, the top and bottom alignment changes.  I've tried using several different label templates and the alignment changes a little less or a little more, depending on the label selection.  Does anyone know why this happens and is there a solution?  Such a simple thing can be so frustrating and take up so much time.

There are some differences in how a report exports.  Are you using a machine with the same printer driver loaded as the report was built against?

Yes.  Also, the report is distributed through Enterprise Reporting in .pdf format, so users are printing on a variety of printers.  The pdf margins even change on my laser printer.  Printing directly from Crystal works perfect - it just the export.  Since submitting this question, I was able to troubleshoot further and discovered that just as you are ready to print the pdf file, if you change the Acrobat "Page Scaling" setting to NONE, that brings us closer to the original alignment - but still not perfect.  I'm going with that solution for now.  Thanks for your idea.
