printer is off

Ok I have my printer set at full size - no scaling and I am 1/16th inch too small on the patterns. I measured the little sample block and it was right on. But when I printed the patterns they are 1/16th too small!! I had got started to sew and thought I would put one star together and realized that some of the blocks are too small.

I will need to start over and make this correct by making the seam allowance smaller than the 1/4 inch normally taken.

Is anyone else having this problem with their printers?
