Form fields misaligned

I have a PDF with two text fields an a graphic. It's used to print information onto a pre-printed certificate.

 

I'm using a .Net program and iTextSharp to merge data into this form and create a PDF. These individual PDFs (all single page) are then combined using iTextSharp into a single PDF. Everything works great - until you print the combined PDF. 

 

What happens is the first few certificates come out great, i.e., the fields are in the correct spot as is the graphic. However, after a number of pages, two of the fields move up and everything gets off track.

 

It's very, very strange. Why would the position of these fields suddenly change?

Why does you post the question in a forum for Adobe Acrobat? iTextSharp is not a Adobe product.

Because I don't think this has anything to do with iTextSharp. The PDFs created are fine; it's just when printing, after a few pages, the fields "move" and are no longer aligned properly.

I have not done that yet. However, I just printed 100 pages to a different printer and this behavior didn't occur. Has anyone seen something like this before?
