Learn how to print on to oversized paper sizes when using the imagePROGRAF TC-20 / TC-20M with a Mac®.


When printing a created document so that it fills the entire paper width, select a paper size from the "XXX oversize" (sizes resulting from adding margins necessary for printer operation to the document sizes) so that all areas of the document are printed at their actual size.

A printout that has the same area as the document can be obtained by trimming the outer margins after printing.

The procedure for printing with oversize is as follows:

  1. In the Print dialog, select "XXX oversize" for Paper Size.

    Select "XXX oversize" for Paper Size (outlined in red)

  2. Select Quality & Media from the pop-up menu.

  3. Select Roll Paper for Paper Source.

  4. Select Page Processing from the pop-up menu.

  5. Set Roll Paper Width to the width of the roll paper loaded in the printer.

    Specify the width of the roll paper

  6. Click Print.
    When you print, the document is printed so that it fills the paper width.

 When printing to oversized paper sizes, use paper that has the following necessary margins added to the document size.

  • Cut sheet: 6 mm or more added to width and 23 mm or more added to height of document size

  • Roll paper: 6 mm or more added to width and 6 mm or more added to height of document size

 An oversized paper size cannot be used for the largest paper size that can be loaded in the printer.
