Print Image with Actual Size

This topic describes how to print borderlessly at actual size based on the following example.

Page size: 10x12 inches (254.0x304.8 mm)

Paper type: Heavyweight Coated Paper
Roll paper width: 10 inches (254.0 mm)

    "*If you can specify the margin, as in Microsoft Word, set the margin at 0 mm.
    For instructions on specifying the margin, refer to the software documentation."
