Borderless Printing by Resizing Originals to Fit the Roll Width (Windows)
When borderless printing is used, the edge of the paper is cut during printing. Thus, ink density may be uneven at the edges.
If you require higher image quality, select No from the Automatic Cutting list in the Roll Paper Options dialog box. In this
case, the paper can be printed without borders on the left and right sides only. Once printed and cut, please cut the upper
and lower bands with scissors.
