Can you printer borderless on a custom paper size? I'm trying to print borderless on a A2 Card (4.25" x 5.5") and it shows that it's going to print borderless in the print preview, however, it still prints with a white border around the photo.

Can this printer borderless on a custom paper size? I'm trying to print borderless on a A2 Card (4.25" x 5.5") and it shows that it's going to print borderless in the print preview, however, it still prints with a white border around the photo.
The truth is that I cannot be certain - I don't have this printer and the data is (in my opinion) inconclusive. Rats.
Techspecs (internal document) does indicate that there is a 3mm margin per side for any size / media type (kind of paper) - likely for any paper that does not support borderless.
The problem, if there is one at all, is that using the data to which I have access (at least what I've found so far), I cannot absolutely say whether the feature is supported on your card paper (Media), at that custom size (A2 card).
So.. try it.
First, create a Custom paper size form for your A2 card paper
Load your card paper into the printer - tell the printer control panel that you are using "custom" size paper.
Check / Adjust / Retain the Paper at the Printer Panel
Open Printer Tray,
If you have not yet done so, add desired paper type
IF applicable for your printer:
Look for a message on the Printer Control Panel,
Click Modify (wording varies), set the paper size and type, Click OK
NOTE: If the size of the Paper Size is not in the Drop-down list, Select Custom
Set the Preferences - Windows
- The following assumes the Full Feature Software has been installed.
- Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”
- Select and adjust settings in each category for the Media (kind of paper), source (tray), and paper size.
Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Set as Default
Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Printing Preferences >
Tab Printing Shortcuts > Click / Highlight preferred shortcut > Click Apply > Click OK to exit
If the printer software supports the feature, change the settings as desired, then use “Save as” to create a Custom Shortcut.
Windows key + S (search for) Printers and Scanners
Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage >
Select a shortcut and / or set “preferred settings” for paper size, Media type (kind of paper), source (tray), other settings
Optional (if / as available): Save As > enter a name for your custom shortcut
Click OK to save the preferences
Once you have created your custom size paper form,
