Thank you.
But the problem is when I make 6  box with text in it on each row and total 12 rows, it is clear to see the text shrinkage when I open it with adobe acrabat. for example. the side margin I set is 0.75 inch, but it may seems more than 0.75, so is top margin, and bottom margin.

Same here on Linux with cups and acroread 5,x. I don't think it is an issue 
with reportlab. Tim's suggestions above are excellent.
