printing issue with a simple graphic

Hello MathGroup:

I have a legend on a graphic created using this one-liner:

Graphics[{Table[{ColorData["SouthwestColors", t/10],
    Text[t/10., {1.5, 2 t}], Rectangle[{0, 2 t }]}, {t, 10}]}]

On the screen this displays fine, but when printed or saved to PDF,
each square is very large (takes 6 pages), even though the font of the
value is still small. Of course, this is not WYISIWIG! Is there any
known way to control this?

BTW, as a result of reading material by David Weiss, I have been
learning more about "printing styles". Could that have some bearing on
this problem?

TIA.

FYI: this is reported previously to WRI support.

Regards..
