Label Printing Offset Follow


I have a Zebra ZT410 and am using the Seagull driver. 

My label artwork looks good when I preview it, but it's printing skewed up and to the right. It's shifting the entire label over. It can't seem to print in those areas. It's happening to all of the labels, it's just more noticeable in the smaller ones. The ones with the barcode are 1" x .5".

In this one you can see that in the bottom right the printer is refusing to print at a certain point. It just cut off that text. It does the same thing on the left side. 

I feel like I've tried everything in the driver, but nothing is changing it. The only setting I changed was the Unprintable Width from 0.12in to 0in. Before the change it was only printing part of it, but it was still offset. 

If anyone has any ideas on things to try, any help would be greatly appreciated!
