Printing Cards to PDF

I have a mobile App (iOS) that prints 2 template cards from a sub stack to a 2 page pdf file.
This has worked flawlessly in LC5.5.3 but seems to fail in 6.6.2 (have tried a few variants of 6.6.2).

When I say 'fail' I mean that the first card seems to print at half size (in top LH Quadrant) but the second card prints perfectly.....
(Happy to send someone the generated PDF).

I'm thinking it may be something to do with the res independence stuff added in LC 6 but am not sure
(Weird that card 2 prints correct when its the same size etc as card 1)

I appreciate any ideas....

anyway code below.

 put ("Print" & return & "Print2") into tCardsToPrint
   -- Lock screen so user doesn't see card change
   lock screen
   open stack "Printing"
   open printing to pdf tFilePath
   if the result is "Cancel" then exit saveInspection
   repeat with x = 1 to the number of lines of tCardsToPrint
      print card (line x of tCardsToPrint) of stack "Printing" into 110,50,500,700
      print break
   end repeat
   close printing
   close stack "Printing"
   send resetForm to me in 0 milliseconds
   send buildPendingTasks to this stack in 0 milliseconds
