Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

2 Answers

I cannot seem to get BORDERLESS prints 7"x5" from my printer.The process is from PIXMA and I select a photo, click on "Print" and am then into a field where I can select Printer Setup. Although there is an option for Borderless, clicking on the radio button does not change the setting. It is very annoying, since the borders which the Printer selects are very wide, not what I want and a waste of good photo paper.

    Hello, Lee.

    The printer in question is a newly acquired Epson Stylus SX125. I I really don't know what you mean by a printing program - I create text in Word 2007 and photographs are lodged in PICASA. In either case, I just push the print button and select which printer to use (I have a Canon Pixma, as well) and then I'm ditrected to my preferences for that printer. I guess I've given some confusion when I referred to the printing process being from PIXMA, when I meant PICASA, which is, I think, Google related.

    Hope this helps and you can get back to me with the answer.

    Best wishes,

    David Miles

    The limited reply from Lee to mmy original question and the information he then asked for plus his next -interim - reply does not convince me that he knows what he is doing, here. For $16, I expect better - the problem is a relatively simple one. Please pass me to someone who does not claim to be a "guru" but is an expert in his field or drop me from this enquiry. David Miles

It looks like you and Lee are not clear with each other. If he asked you "Priting Program", he should mean from which program you were printing or pushing the "Print" command. It's kinda different, as you need to set up the page from the document as well. Suppose if you were printing from a Microsoft Word, you have to set the border from the Page setup which is under the "Page Layout" menu. Click the "page layout" menu and click the down arrow below the "Margins" and again click "Custom Margins", there you'll see the margin options. By default, all sides of the document are set to 1", you can change them to higher or lower value, but don't set them to 0, it would create problem detecting the printer settings. You can set 0.5 or 0.4 or etc... Also click the "Layout" tab in the "Page Setup" box (which is one of the options with "Margins"), and change the "Header" and "Footer" edges settings.
And if you were printing the picture/s from Picasa, I would need to know the browser's name since the setup is different. If you access picasa photos from Internet Explorer, click "File" on the internet explorer menu, select "Page Setup" and change the "Margins" settings. By default, Internet Explorer Margins edges' settings are left =0.75, right=0.75, top = 0.75 and bottom = 0.75. You can change them to whatever you like from the "Page Setup" dialog box.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you need further help.
Note: If you printer printing preferences has options about margins or border, you need to set it from there also.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

    You said that the settings for your other printer are popping up when you go to print. That sounds like part of the problem. Go to your printers folder in control panel and make sure you have the sx125 set as your default printer. You may even want to remove the other printer to see if that will help the issue your having. Then follow these steps located in the manual to print borderless:


    Printing from other applications




    Printer settings for Windows



    Follow these steps to adjust your printer settings.










    Access the printer settings.














    Click the Main tab, then select one of the following Quality Option settings:






    Photo for good quality and speed



    Best Photo for the best print quality











    Select the appropriate Type setting.












    Select Borderless if you want to print borderless photos.





    If you want to control the amount of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper, click the Page Layout tab, select Auto Expand as the Enlargement Method, and then adjust the Expansion slider.










    Select the appropriate Size setting.











    Select Portrait (tall) or Landscape (wide) to change the orientation of your printout.











    Click OK to close the printer settings window.




    After completing the steps above, print one test copy and examine the results before printing an entire job.
    Here is a copy of the manual as well:

MP600 with Mac OS X - no borderless printing option?


I had the same question. I found the answer at Canon's site but I can't link directly to the page so here's how I found the solution...
1. Go to the Canon Support site. 2. In the "Please enter your question field" type: How do I Print edge to edge? 3. Hit the "Search" button. 4. Click the #1 (top) search result "How do I Print edge to edge?" 5. Click the #1 (top) solution: "Use Borderless Printing (Mac OS X) MP600 6. Follow the directions.
It seems the main thing you need to do is go to the "Page Setup" dialog. Then make sure you've chosen the MP600 in the "Format for:" popup menu. Finally, in the "Paper Size:" popup, select "A4" then "A4 (borderless). It's a hierarchical menu.
