Just a thought - you say '4 images per page'.  Have you checked the size of 
those images?  A page with 4 images on, if they are fairly large, would take 
a long time to process before printing, and may be causing time-outs.  While 
I would expect to be able to send a large document in one go, I'd be doubtful 
if it contained so much processing requirement.  HTH
