Unprintable footer margin is too big in HP1000; is there a solution?

HP Recommended

I am using a HP Deskjet 1000 J110 at work. 

 

We have dozens of SPV (single purpose vehicle) companies and it is inexpedient to pay for printed stationery.  Any decent printer should do that for us. 

 

However all official letters require the company place of registration and number in the footer.  Ideally the VAT registration number is there too.  In European business letters this tends always to be found at the bottom edge of the paper.

 

However my HP 1000 will not print even close to the edge of the paper no matter how I fix the settings.  I finally did a margin check by setting the margins to zero and then selecting fix.  This revealed that the unprintable margin at the foot of the page through the HP 1000 is 1.45cm, i.e. 0.58 inches.  Microsoft Word advice suggested that the unprintable margin rarely exceeds 0.67 inch so it is just within tolerance.

 

I do understand that there needs to be a certain margin for paper handling .....but over ½ inch?   It looks terribly unprofessional to send out correspondence with such a huge bottom margin after the footer detail. 

 

 

Is there a workaround for this to get it to correspondence-standard please, other than tediously taping a strip of paper to the bottom of the letter every time to artificially extend the paper size?  .

 

Thanx 

John

John, this is a design compromise of the 1000.

If you must have a small bottom margin then you will need to get another model.

I have the same issue. Thanks for posting this answer. I guess we'll have to spring for a better printer model in the future.
