    Solution

    To ensure the best print quality, the printer allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.
    NOTE
    Borderless Printing
    By selecting Borderless Printing on the printer driver, you can make prints with no margins.
    • When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.
    • For Borderless Printing, use the following paper.
    – “Photo Paper Pro PR-101”
    – “Glossy Photo Paper GP-401 / Glossy Photo Paper “Everyday Use” GP-501”
    – “Photo Paper Glossy GP-502”
    – “Photo Paper Plus Glossy PP-101”
    – “Photo Paper Plus Double Sided PP-101D”
    – “Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss SG-101, SG-201”
    – “Matte Photo Paper MP-101”
    Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.
    Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing.
    • Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the to and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.
