Can you print the said pages with another PDF viewer or is just Evince 
that fails?

It depends on where ths bug can be:

- PDF viewer
To discard this try to print from a different application

- Printing system or drivers
If you get the same error when printing from different programs the 
problem can be in drivers/PPD file of printer settings. You can also try 
with a different PPD file (PCL6 instead PostScript).

- The generated PDF file itself that has some sort of incompatibility 
problem with your printer settings or drivers.
