If you print directly from DVI / PDF / PS the hardcopy should look similar.
But, if you open PDF file with and PDF reader and print, the default option
"auto rotate and centre" and "autofit" should be disabled to get same
hardcopy. Auto fit or zoom=100% should give identical copies. With PS check
for A4paper option, this is discussed earlier tugindia Digest, Vol 54, Issue
