Ok, what's your printer ? What's a CUPS driver ? 

And another suggestion.
Some years ago, 1991, Wordperfect included its own drivers for
printers. Is Corel Wordperfect for Linux including those drivers?

It might be a Ghostscript bug. Ghostscript is known to be buggy/
lack of support,
specially if you printer is  a new brand model.

With Corel Wordperfect drivers the results should be different.

More suggestions, If your printer belongs to a "big" family of 
printers, like  the Epson Stylus family, define a printer 
(printool, Red Hat , or whatever) with the "General Stylus

And, if I could I would test that printer in Windows too, just
to make sure, the printer runs fine.

Be paranoid and systematic and you'll guess it, by sure. Don't trust
any "element" of the chain.
