Printing

This printer allows you to print with no margin on all four sides of the paper. Follow the steps below to print with no margins.

Notice that not all kinds of paper are available for this option.

Available paper

You can use roll paper and single sheets listed below with this option.

EPSON Photo Paper

You cannot use this option with EPSON Iron-On Cool Peel Transfer Paper. If you use other media, your printout will be blurry or smeared.

Printing data

Because this option enlarges the image to a size slightly larger than the paper size, the portion of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper will not be printed.

When creating your printing data using an application, note the following:

Printing on roll paper

You need to make your data 4 mm wider than the roll paper.

Printing on single sheet

You need to fit your data to the size of paper. If your application has margin settings, make sure they are set to zero before printing.
