Pro Premium Matte Paper: Margin limited to 30mm...Why?

lamontg

I am attempting to print on the Canon Pro Premium Matte paper and it seems that Canon constrains the margins to a minimum of 30mm. The Custom button is grayed out in Print Studio Pro. I have also tried to get around this in Lightroom 6 (by not using Print Studio Pro), but when I send the photo to my Canon Pixma Pro-100 the printer driver informs me that the 30mm margin will be imposed.

Is there any way to get around this limit? If not, does anyone know why Canon imposes this limit (especially on a smaller letter-sided paper? Thanks for the help from anyone more knowledgeable.

Hello.

 

When printing on Fine Art Paper, the printer will place a border around the image.  This is because Fine Art Paper may have a tendency to curl as ink hits the paper, resulting in paper jams.

 

If you need additional assistance or details about media type settings for your printer, find more help at Contact Us.

Select Letter Paper and Matte Photo Paper, not Fine Art Paper and Premium Matte.

The 30mm is hard wired into all Fine Art Paper settings.

 

For larger prints I like the matte effect offered by the border and use A3+ 30 for all papers. 

 

I agree it is too much on letter size.

Michael, thank you for our reply.

The number prefixes are quality settings.

Thank you John!

Is there further explanantion somewhere of what these quality numbers mean?... so would a prefix of "3" mean that it's printed at 9x the quality of a prefix of "1/3"?

I am new to the Pro-100 and Canon paper and seems that some of this information is difficult to find in any of the Canon documentation -- so I am thankful of other users that are willing to help.

You can select Matte Photo Paper as media type and then select Minimize Paper Abrasion in the driver. 

 

This will avoid the 30mm margin.

Thank you again John for the reply.
I have since looked through the printer (driver) settings available in Print Studio Pro with Pro Premium Matte Photo paper selected and have not been able to find the "Minimize Paper Abrasion" setting.

Hello Michael or other Canon podcut expert (official or otherwise) -

I have a Pixma Pro-100 and I want to circumvent the 30mm border limit for art paper.  Trust me, I have good reasons.

Please let me know how to do this. 

Thank you,

Chris
