Borderless printing depends a lot on the type of printer you use. We recommend you take your file to a digital printing company because they will have printers that print these types of files without margins.

If you have a printer that supports borderless printing, you can print any file without margins. This feature can be very useful, especially if the file you want to print contains content that goes all the way to the page edges. However, even if your printer supports borderless printing, the default setting for files is to shrink the content to fit standard page margins (usually an inch on each side). To print your file without these margins, go to the print settings.

For example, for PDF files:

  • Double-click on the PDF document to open it with the default program, usually Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat Pro. Open the “File” menu and click “Print” to open the Print dialog box.
  • Select your printer from the “Printer” drop-down menu and select “Actual size” under “Size Options.” Click the “Page Setup” button. If your printer supports borderless printing, the Margins section of the dialog box will be editable; change each margin setting to “0” and click “OK.”
  • Change any additional settings, such as the number of copies and which pages of the PDF you want to print. When ready, click the “Print” button to print your PDF document without margins.

For other formats, .pages or .docx, the procedure is similar.
