Try preparing the image in GIMP, then printing from GIMP and also
another program - compare the results.

There are issues with RGB->CMYK conversion in any program, but this
test will at least let you know if GIMP's print plug-in is to blame
for skewing the colors, or if you've just chosen colors that are out
of gamut.
