I have no experience with that particular printer, but try going to
the "Configure Printer" button in the web interface.  See if switching
the orientation helps at all (if you even have that option).  If that
doesn't help, try playing with the ppd file (/etc/cups/ppd/<name>.ppd)
and see if tweaking anything helps.  I have no idea if it will or what
to change, it's just a guess.  Try your intuition :-).
