Printing Area

Content Id: 8201355200


To ensure the best print quality, the machine allows a margin along each edge of media. The actual printable area will be the area inside these margins.

Recommended printing area : Canon recommends that you print within this area.

Printable area : The area where it is possible to print.

However, printing in this area can affect the print quality or the paper feed precision.

Caution

- When performing borderless copying, you can specify the amount of images that extends off the paper by Extended copy amt. in Print settings.

Borderless Printing

- By selecting Borderless Printing option, you can make prints with no margins.

- When performing Borderless Printing, slight cropping may occur at the edges since the printed image is enlarged to fill the whole page.

- Duplex printing is not available when performing Borderless Printing.

- For Borderless Printing, use the following paper:

Photo Paper Pro Platinum ⋖PT-101⋗
Glossy Photo Paper "Everyday Use" ⋖GP-501⋗
Photo Paper Glossy ⋖GP-502⋗
Photo Paper Plus Glossy II ⋖PP-201⋗
Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss ⋖SG-201⋗
Matte Photo Paper ⋖MP-101⋗

Performing Borderless Printing on any other type of paper may substantially reduce printing quality and/or result in printouts with altered color hues.

Borderless Printing on plain paper may result in printouts with reduced quality. Use them only for test printing. You can perform Borderless Printing on plain paper only when printing from your computer.

- Borderless Printing is not available for legal, A5, or B5 sized paper, or envelopes.

- Depending on the type of paper, Borderless Printing may reduce the print quality at the top and bottom edges of the paper or cause these parts to become smudged.
