Do you really mean 5 cm, as in 2 full inches?

When you print from Acrobat, in the Print Dialog, double-check to make
SURE that Page Scaling is set to None, and Auto Rotate and Center is
turned off. Nothing screws up label printing more thatn Acrobat's
Their web site says the printer itself has an 11 mm top margin, so you
can't tune it down to 0, but you should be able to do better than 5 cm.
