Printing Area (PRO-10)



Printing Area

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.


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:
    - Photo Paper Pro Platinum <PT-101>
    - Photo Paper Plus Glossy II <PP-201>
    - Photo Paper Pro Luster <LU-101>
    - Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss <SG-201>
    - Matte Photo Paper <MP-101>*
    * This paper can be used only when printing from your computer.
    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 is not available for legal, 11" x 17" (279.4 x 431.8 mm), A5, B5, or B4 sized paper, plain paper, or art paper.
  • 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.
