Print Area

To maintain print quality, the printer leaves a margin around the edges of paper. The printable area is inside this margin.

Printable area  : You can print in this area.


  • With performing Automatic Duplex Printing, the printable area will be 0.08 in. (2 mm) smaller at the top margin.

  • When performing Borderless Printing, select Amount of extension in Print settings of Device settings to specify the amount of images that extends off the paper.

  • 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.
