Distortion printing gradient shapes in Excel

I have created a Gantt chart in Excel using shapes with a gradient fill.  It looks great in excel, but when i print it distorts around the shapes.  

Please see the attached screen shot of the excel doc and a pdf of the print out.

Is there a setting or a better way to print this without the distortion?

If I remove the gradient from the shapes, it will print without distortion.

You probably used Auto size to fit the data on the print. This cant be solved without changing your sheet.
Try to make all columns a little smaller and print at 100%
