Can you printer borderless on a custom paper size (ex. I'm trying to print borderless on a A2 Card)

HP ENVY PHOTO 7855
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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.

Maybe.

 

The truth is that I cannot be certain - I don't have this printer and the data is (in my opinion) inconclusive.   Rats.

 

The printer Specifications and the Datasheet say "yes".

 

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

HP Document:

HP Printers - Creating Custom Paper Sizes

 

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

Close Tray

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

 

  1. The following assumes the Full Feature Software has been installed.
  2. Check / enable the printer as the “Default Printer”
  3. 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.

 

OR

Windows key + S (search for) Printers and Scanners

Left-Click on (your) Printer > Manage >

Printing Preferences

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

 

 

Another approach

Once you have created your custom size paper form, 

Consider:
