Canon Pixma Pro-200 shakes as it prints

I just set up my new Canon Pixma Pro-200 and it shakes slighty as it prints. I've include image of what the print looks like. Part of a line is smeared and part of the letters are too. Is the printer supposed to shake? I have it sitting on wicker set of drawers that I just emptied out, so wonder if it is too unstable. Or maybe it's the alignment, print head, etc.? Any ideas? Thanks

Welcome to the forum. 

I don't think the image was posted. 

There is a lot of mechanical activity going on in the printer, so you should mount it on a stable fixture. 

But it doesn't sound right that it is affecting your printout. As a test temporarily place printer on the floor and see what the output looks like.
