Borders outside printable area

I keep getting a message that says the borders on the pages I am printing are outside the printable area. The printer regularly chops off one side of a border I put on any page. I have tried adjusting the distance from the edge of the page. I have tried adjusting the margins. Nothing I do seems to work.

Printing 11x14 photos

First use a photo processing programme (like say Photoshop or PS Elements - or if you have not got that (can be expensive) get the free Faststone Image Viewer and size the image to twice the paper size you want, then use the crop tool to select half the image and save that as a file with a name where you can find it again. Do the same with the other half. You will now have two files, each half of the paper size. As they will have small borders, print and trim the borders, so you can then mount side by side to achieve what you want. I would advise to NOT try and print without borders - that can introduce other problems - just accept having to trim the small borders from normal printing.

I can't get my computer to print because it keeps saying the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page. I have a meeting to go to and It's important that I get this paper off the...

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.

Problem with printing borders, and with cartridge.

Hmm, I got the same problem once in my university LABs.
What i do was the same you have done, but do try again because if "some side" of the border is not been printed, then its the "Border Setting".

Try using Ms Word 2007.(I guess you are already using it)
Goto Page Layout Tab > click Page Borders (Borders and Shading dialogue will appear) > Then insert a border, apply it.

Now again go there, and this time in the bottom right corner of the dialogue box, you will see Options button, click it.

Make the Margins Maximum (31pts) (Measure from : Edge of Page)

if this doen't work, then;

You can also change the margins but now (Measure from : Text)

But the first one works for me perfectly.
before doing this all also re-insert your blx/wht cartirdge.

I can't get rid of the margins when i print something

I'm guess you are printing from MS Word? Click File the "Page Setup" Click the layout tab the far right then go to the bottom and click borders and select the NONE option. You should have your borders removed!! =) That is if that is the type of border you are talking about.
