Printer doesn't print blank space at the bottom of pages

HP Recommended
MacBook Pro
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Whenever I print double-sided pdfs, the front page always prints normally, but the back side aligns to the bottom. Where there is supposed to be a normal margin or larger blank space, it prints only ~1/4" and all of the blank space is put at the top. It does not show this in the preview and it only happens on my laptop. Is there any way to fix this? Right now, I am printing from my phone, but it would be much easier to print from my laptop. Thank you.
