Select "Crop to Page" before printing. Or just print as-is. Most cases it will look okay on your printout.

This is not a fault of the printer. The document you are trying to print is wider than A4/Letter.
Return to your document and reduce the size of the margins. Resave it and try printing it again.

I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  2. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  3. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  4. Click OK.

I need to print some cards with my printer, is it possible to reduct margin to zero? I have created the document without margins, but the printer cuts part of te documents... thank you for your help!


This is normal. Practically all printers have a 'non-printable area' which forms a border at the top and bottom and left and right hand sides of the page. Whilst your software may allow you to work with a zero margin, your printer is physically incapable of printing in the non-printable area and will simply cut-off any text or images that overflow into this region.

The best solution is to reduce the number of cards on your page so that you can bring the text back within the printable area of the page. Then print with normal or wide margins and trim the excess from your cards.

Using XP, my HP Deskjet 5550 printer allowed me to set margins of 0.5 inches and the document printed correctly. With my new Vista 64-bit OS, I get a message that the margins are outside the printable area...


Try when the message comes up click on print anyway. I have to do this with my printer sometimes and when I click print anyway and do not try to correct it prints fine.

The printer will not print on the half inch left edge of the page.


go to settings and change the left margin to 0.0. if in Word, then file->page setup and set the margins to what you want, left margin to 0.0 in your case.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

How to print envelopes on my printer


Use The Recommended Print Area For the best printing results, adjust the top and bottom margins of your document to within the recommended printing area shown below. Click on the paper size listed for the recommended print area settings: A4 / B5 / A5 / 4 x 6 / 4 x 8 / 5 x 7 / Credit Card, Letter and Legal, Envelopes (DL / COM#10)
Caution: When printing is performed outside the recommended printing area, the top and bottom edges of the paper may curl, the print quality may deteriorate, or the printed side may be smudged.
The printer has both the recommended print area and the printable area, according to the paper size.
05sj00144_01.jpg Recommended print area: This indicates the recommended print area.
05sj00144_02.jpg Printable area: Although this indicates the printable area, degradation of print quality may occur.
Note:
  • Set Borderless Printing to print without margins.
  • In Duplex Printing, the printable area of the paper's header is approximately 2 mm narrower than usual.

Hello,

That usually means that the document with the border has margins that are outside the printable range of the printer. Try temporarily setting the margins to 1" all the way around and try again. If that solves the issue then you can decrease the margin to your desired setting.

Thanks

MY PRINTER DOES NOT LABEL IT'S Pages


What application are you printing from? Basically its the software that handles these features

Try this:

Please try the following:

1. Have your document up on your screen.
2. Click on "INSERT" "PAGE NUMBERS".
3. Select the options you prefer (as header or footer), (right, left, center, inside outside, etc.).
4. Make sure that these page numbers are not outside of the printable area or margin area.

If you are placing the page numbers as a footer:

1. Click on "FILE" "PRINT".
2. Click on "PROPERTIES".
3. Click on the "PAPER" tab.
4. Choose "MAXIMUM".
5. Click on "YES".

This will enlarge your printable area so that you can set your bottom margin as small as .12 inches. This will help in printing the page numbers as a footer.

If this does not resolve your issue, please contact Microsoft for further assistance. This particular issue is software related.
