Sorry for the delay in accepting the answer - this got pushed to the side for a while.

Thanks for the clear answer - I've never dealt with GIS software before (which is probably obvious from my question). We're looking into this possibility now, and if it is indeed the underlying maps giving the problem I'll mark your answer as correct.

You mention on your blog that this is a "(semi-)automatic" process: does this mean that a new project file has to be created for every map? Do the labels have to be added manually?

@underdark - In ArcGIS, the aerial images for some areas are only available at certain zoom levels.

Thanks for the prompt, clear answer. We've tried ArcGIS but it won't zoom as close as we'd like for aerial images, certain areas don't print correctly, and was generally unreliable. Sorry I didn't include this in my question - I'll edit it.

@Mapperz: 1. I need to use it offline; 2. I don't need to view the map before it's printed - it just has to be generated and printed.
