Printing on Oversize Paper (iPF8400)

Content Id: 8201724900


Solution

Oversize

You can print all areas of the original at full scale by selecting the paper size from Oversize (sizes where the margins needed for printer operation have been added to the page size).

We recommend when printing with a focus on image.

Caution

If you prepare an original for printing without a margin and print it on paper of regular size, the image near the edge will not be printed.

Oversize

When printing on standard paper sizes, printing is performed by taking the margins necessary for printer operations inside the region of the original. (See "Print Area (iPF8400).") For example, printing the A4 size (210 x 297 mm) original shown in Figure (b) gives the result as shown in Figure (a).

However, if Oversize paper is selected, printing is performed by taking the margins necessary for printer operations outside of the region of the original to give the result as shown in Figure (c).

The A4 size print as shown in Figure (b) can then be obtained by trimming the margins from the periphery after printing.

Caution

When printing on Oversize paper, load paper larger than the page size-a size that includes the margin required by the printer.

-Sheets: Load paper that is at least 10 mm (0.39 in) wider and 28 mm (1.10 in) higher than the page size

-Rolls:Load paper that is at least 10 mm (0.39 in) wider and 10 mm (0.39 in) higher than the page size

Caution

Paper larger than the maximum size supported by the printer cannot be used as paper for oversized printing. (See "Paper Sizes (iPF8400).")
Oversized printing (selecting Oversize in Page Size) is only available in Windows.
To perform oversized printing on a Mac OS X computer, you must specify a non-standard page size and print on it.
To specify a non-standard paper size in oversized printing, register the paper size as a Custom Paper Size. Oversized printing is not available with Custom Size.
