Borderless printing is supported on certain paper types (Media) and selected paper sizes.


Specifications > Paper Handling


Supported paper sizes




Borders on photos that are uneven might be the result of the shape of the photo not exactly fitting the shape of the paper.  Use software to "center" the image horizontally and / or vertically to even out the border.  Opening / viewing the image using Paint (mspaint) can be used to center your photo for printing.






If the paper type, size, and image are appropriate for borderless printing, use your print software to submit the job as "borderless".


For example, use HP Smart for Windows

Example - HP Smart - Borderless image print




Uneven borders on documents might be a result of the requirements for the border (see Specifications > Margins) and / or whether the document size and structure fits on the paper as expected.  Headers and Footers play a role, too, as does whether the document is printed in duplex (orientation and long/short side flip).  Finally, if printing in Booklet style, the center "fold" area, known as the "gutter" can influence borders.


If the problem is an actual printed border around a document (a line / box around the content), this is controlled / removed in the software that is used to view / edit the document as it is sent to be printed.  I can provide examples, but won't do so unless you need this information.
