What operating system do you have? Printing from email provider or Adobe? What printer? Printer connected USB/wired/wireless? If you print a PDF file that is not from the material supplier, does it print properly?

There is a know issue that can happen when the 'print color as black' option is selected. If you have that option enabled, try printing those PDFs with it off.
