Recommended Printable Area

If you are printing beyond the recommended printing area of your printing paper, the lower edge of the paper may become stained with ink.

Resize your original document in your application software.

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.

Recommended printing area : Canon recommends that you print within this area.

Printable area : The area where it is possible to print.

However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

Note:

Borderless Printing

- By selecting Borderless Printing option, 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:

  • Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" GP-501
  • Photo Paper Glossy GP-502
  • Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss SG-201
  • Photo Paper Pro Platinum PT-101
  • Photo Paper Plus Glossy II PP-201
  • Photo Paper Pro II PR-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. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.

- Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.

- When printing in grayscale, depending on an image, the printing troubles may occur on the top and/or bottom edges of the paper such as uneven coloration or white streaks.
