Shifting the image on the page.

Hi Folks

When printing with a2ps: The image appears to be some 15mm (5/8") too low
on the page, resulting in part of the printed border being masked off.

I have looked in the manual but have not found any obvious way to move the

Can anyone suggest where I should look to fix this problem, or indeed how
to solve the problem?

Many thanks.

The details:

I use a gs filter to print on a Canon LBP-8mkiii laser printer, using A4
paper.  Printing from other programs (ie emacs and acroread) gives
correctly positioned output.  Also; ps output from a2ps as viewed with
ghostview appears to be correct.
