Graphic doesn't print to some printers and when it does, has the wrong symbology

I'm using the ExportActiveView sample code to send a layout to a user-selected printer. The dataframe includes a cross-hatched graphic that is added by code.

 

I have two issues:

 

1. When I print to the printer I have here, the graphic shows up on the printed paper. When my user at another office does the same with his printer, the graphic doesn't print at all.

 

2. On my printed copy (and a pdf-export from code as well), the graphic shows up as a gray rectangle when on the screen it appears as a cross-hatched rectangle with a tranparent background.

 

If I manually print or export directly from ArcMap, the graphic has the right symbology.

 

I've seen similar questions on these forums but finding them again is not the easiest thing to do these days...
