When you are in Excel, go to Print Preview, then Printer Properties. There should be a box that says "Custom Size." There you can input your paper size and name it so you can recall it anytime you want.

Will not print to size


There are "default" paper options that can be set from the epson software you may need to alter these to suit your regular paper size.

Also if you are printing from MS office you can select sizes from there too.

It is better if both are set to the same.

There are two different ways to create a custom page size within the Epson printer driver on Windows 2000 or XP. The method you need to use will vary depending on what type of driver is installed.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE IN SERVER PROPERTIES
This method will create a new page size accessible by all printer drivers installed in Windows.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS and FAXES (XP) window.
2. Click on FILE, then select SERVER PROPERTIES.
3. On the FORMS tab, place a check beside CREATE A NEW FORM.
4. Input a new name for the paper size. Enter the desired height and width, following the existing format (#.##in).
5. Click SAVE or SAVE FORM to add the new form size to the list, then close SERVER PROPERTIES.
6. Right click on the printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES.
7. Look for PAPER SIZE. (Depending on the driver in use, this will be found on the MAIN tab, the PAPER tab, or under the ADVANCED button). Select your custom paper size from the list.
8. Click APPLY to save this setting, or OK in Windows XP.
NOTE: If your new custom size is not available on the list of preset paper sizes, it indicates that the new size is either too large or too small for the driver in use.
CREATING A CUSTOM PAPER SIZE WITHIN THE EPSON DRIVER
This method will create a custom size within the Epson printer driver only.
1. Open the PRINTERS (2000) or PRINTERS AND FAXES (XP) window.
2. Right click your Epson printer name and left click PRINTING PREFERENCES.
3. On the MAIN or PAPER tab, select USER DEFINED from the PAPER SIZE drop down box.
4. Enter the new custom size and give it a name. Click SAVE to save the new size and OK to return to MAIN.
5. Click APPLY to save the changes (OK in Windows XP).

Epson C900 print shifted down page -


OK after messing about with the drivers I got it to work. I downloaded a driver from Epson singapore and it made no difference. So, I re used the driver from Epson UK and hey presto the thing works again. Why? Good question. Maybe the people in Epson have no idea either.
So, I suggest deleting the driver rebooting the system and reinstalling it. I hope you get it working.

Paper size..


In WIN98 with WordPerfect9 we had set up dot matrix printer Epson LQ1050 on which to print 8.5" wide by 5.5" long (half page) multipart invoices. In XP apparently MSFT changed this and there is no custom paper size in windows printers. Instead one must use the program's (Word Perfect) page setup where the page size can be entered. Problem is the Epson drivers have not been rewritten to incorporate this change. The optional paper sizes are builtin to the printer drivers. Some folks with the same situation as you have had success using the Forms menu in MS Fax to set different paper sizes. Third party programs such as FinePrint (www.fineprint.com) can also help with this. I hope you work it out ;]

Print Error


make sure the thickness lever is set to 0. To be on the safe side make sure you have the latest drivers, and check to make sure that you don't need to change the ink. sometimes things like this happen when the printer registers a wrong ink level. Hope this helps
