Accommodate media width:

  • 8 in, 203.2 mm

  • 210 mm (A4)

  • Letter (8.5 in), 215.9 mm

  • 10 in, 254 mm

  • 257 mm

  • 297 mm (A3)

  • 300 mm

  • 12 in, 304.8 mm

  • 329 mm (Super A3/B)

  • 13 in, 330.2 mm

  • 14 in, 355.6 mm

  • 400 mm

  • 17 in, 431.8 mm

Note:
  • You cannot perform borderless printing on cut-sheet media with a width of 420 mm (A2).
  • If your application has margin settings, make sure they are set to zero before printing.
  • When printing on cut-sheet media, only the left and right margins are set to zero.
  • The ink may contaminate the platen of the printer. In this case, wipe the ink away using a cloth.
  • Printing with this feature takes longer time than normal printing.
  • Only Plain Paper and Plain Paper (line drawing) can set the bottom margin to 3 mm. When printing on the other media, the bottom margin is always 14 mm.
  • When Premium Glossy Photo Paper (250) roll paper or Premium Semigloss Photo Paper (250) roll paper is used in printing, the top margin is always 20 mm.
  • Smear may result in the top and bottom areas depending on the media.

To perform borderless printing, follow the steps below.

Note:
Always match the Format for setting in the Page Setup dialog with the Printer setting in the Print dialog; otherwise, data may not be printed correctly.

Select the paper size with Borderless (Auto Expand), Borderless (Auto Expand, Maximum), Borderless (Retain Size), Borderless (Retain Size, Maximum), Roll Paper - Borderless (Auto Expand), Roll Paper - Borderless (Retain Size), or Roll Paper - Borderless Banner as the Paper Size in the Page Setup dialog.
