Tapered stroke lines print much thicker than uniform strokes

I've recenly been playing with the Width Tool to make some illustrations look a little less computer generated. I'm tapering the ends and using a few stroke styles rather than the standard "uniform" strokes. Onscreen, the lines are exactly the same thickness as my previous illustrations. But, when I print to my laser jet, any non-Uniform strokes print twice the thickness. Is this is glitch or am I mssing a setting? Uniform strokes print perfect, anything else prints thick.

Attched hopfully is a pic...

Hi there, It is an HP Color Laser. I've tried switiching the appeariance of black but no difference.

I've just printed via a PDF and it does improve - but not sure I understand why non-uniform lines don't print direct from Illustrator (or Indesign).

Thank you for the PDF tip - it does give me hope that the illustrations will print out OK when sent to pro printer.
