Can you please be specific about the type of your printer (dot matrix / desk jet / laser)? have you marked your custom page as the default page of your printer as well?

Its always a pain to print custom page size in dot matrix printer using crystal report. Especially if the printer is of Epson. Check if your custom page has been set as the default page of the printer. To check...

1. Open Device and Printer
2. Right click on your printer and choose Printer Properties
3. Look for the Paper Available List box at the bottom-ride side of the properties window. If your custom page is there, then you have successfully set your custom page as the default page of your printer.
4. If your page doesn't appear in that list box, click on Device Settings tab and change all the form to tray assignment page settings to your custom page.
5. Click on apply and check back the list box again to confirm if your page has been set as custom page.
6. Try printing again.

If this solves your problem, then cool. But it may not work in every cases. If this doesn't work, I suggest you go for the Visual Studio printing option. Visual Studio printing option is quite complex but would save you from all shorts of unknown printer issues. Let me know if it works, otherwise i will give you a link how to work with VS Printing mechanism.
