Okular takes your PDF, converts it to PostScript and sends it to the
printing system. Evince converts your PDF to another PDF and sends that
to the printing system.

I think your first step would be to determine what the PDF which evince
sends to CUPS looks like. One way is to stop cupsd with

 cupsdisable <destination_print_queue>

and send the invoice from evince to be printed. Look in /var/spool/cups
for a file beginning with "d" and view it in a PDF viewer. Also use
pdfinfo and pdffonts to compare this PDF and the original one.

Use cupsenable to revert the first command.
