Preparing the print 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 print data in an application, you need to adjust the data to the size of the paper. If your application has margin settings, make sure they are set to zero before printing.
