Thank you,

 

Do you know of HP version that does?  I have always had epson printers, which print boarderless, so have never come across one not printing boarderless.

Hi,

 

HP has many models of printers which support borderless printing. Photosmart models could be my first guess.

@ bubble877

 

As banhein states, HP produces many models of printers that support different options of borderless printing.  One key factor to keep in mind is the size of job you are attempting to print.  

 

What size of paper do you need to print boarderless? (8.5x11, legal, 4x6, etc)

 

With this information I can better assist in providing some HP models that can print on this size in boarderless.

Re: can 3055a print edge to edge and if so how do i do this?

Spoiler
 

Hiya,

 

I make handmade greeting cards, so it would be various sizes, such as 6"x6"  5" x 7" and A4.

I have always had epson printers and these are boarderless (expect about a 0.2mm boarder) but the inks are so expensive, this is why I had looked at HP. 

I have taken the 3055a back to the shop for a refunnd and just using epson now until i find another one.

any advise you could give me, would be great.

ps im in the UK.

Thanks

[ Edited ]

I looked in the UK shopping page to find some printers that may be able to support these sizes mentioned.  

 

I found several that offer various boarderless options, but none that offered 6x6.  However, the Officejet 6700 Premium does boarderless A4 and the Officejet Pro 8600 does boarderless A4 and 5x7. 

 

Click here for 8600 Product Specifications

 

I am aware that the 3055a and the 8600 have a bit of a price difference, but the reason being the features you gain with the 8600.

 

* Edit: I did also look at the Officejet 7500a Wide Format e-All-in-One.  This printer has a wide range of boarderless printing options.  The product specifications can be found here.

Re: can 3055a print edge to edge and if so how do i do this?

Have spent a few hours trying to get an HP 3055a printer to print to the edge on the Right hand side of an A4 document in landsacape. Tried adjusting the margins to no avail. Using XP, have tried on 3 different machines and several formats, Coreldraw, corelphotopaint, PDF, JPG all the same. Any ideas?
