Preparing the print data

Because this option enlarges the image to a size slightly larger than the paper size, the portion of the image that extends beyond the edges of the paper will not be printed.

When creating print data in an application, note the following:

Printing on roll paper

When using this feature with roll paper and Banner Mode is selected as the Roll Paper Options setting, you need to use your image-editing software to make the image 4 mm wider than the roll paper (Windows).

You need to make the data 4 mm wider than the roll paper (Macintosh).

Printing on single sheets

You need to adjust the data to the size of the paper. If your application has margin settings, make sure that they are set to zero before printing.
