Learn how to perform a borderless print on a Mac with the PIXMA TR150.


Perform Borderless Printing

The borderless printing function allows you to print data without any margin by enlarging the data so that it extends slightly off the paper. In standard printing, margins are created around the document area. However, with a borderless print, these margins are not created. When you want to print data such as a photo without providing any margin around it, enable borderless printing.

Setting Borderless Printing

  1. Set the amount of extension on the printer operation panel.

     When Extended amount: Large is set, the back side of the paper may become smudged.

  2. Select XXX Borderless for Paper Size from the print dialog.

  3. Click Print.
    When you print, the data is printed without any margins on the paper.

 Borderless printing only supports specific paper sizes. Make sure to select a paper size with the wording "Borderless" from Paper Size.

 Print quality may deteriorate or the sheet may be stained at the top and bottom depending on the type of paper used.

 When the ratio of the height to the width differs from the image data, a portion of the image may not be printed depending on the size of the media used. In this case, crop the image data with an application according to the paper size.

 When scaled printing or page layout printing is enabled, you cannot perform borderless printing.

 The use of borderless printing is not recommended if Plain Paper is selected for Media Type in Media & Quality.


Expanding the Range of the Document to Print

Setting a large amount of extension allows you to perform borderless printing with no problems. However, the portion of the document extending off the paper range will not be printed and for this reason, the subjects around the perimeter of a photo may not be printed.

If you are not satisfied with the borderless printing results, reduce the amount of extension in printer operation panel.

 When the amount of extension is decreased, an unexpected margin may be produced on the print, depending on the size of the paper.

 When the Amount: Minimum is set, image data will be printed in the full size. If you set this when printing the address side of a postcard, the postal code of the sender is printed in the correct position.
