On a high-end printer with a non-Guix CUPS service running, I can print
just fine.  However I’ve seen the problem you describe with a low-end
printer and the CUPS service provided by Guix.

Could it be that our CUPS service somehow fails to find the standard
PostScript fonts, those normally provided by the ‘gs-fonts’ package?
