Try this…

     set the printMargins to 0,0,0,0
     set the printPaperSize to the width of this card,the height of this card
     open printing to pdf specialFolderPath("Documents") & "/mytest.pdf" -- or Wherever
     print this card
     close printing

It works for me in LC5.5.5 to LC7.0.2(rc2).
