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

[ Edited ]

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.

Thank you again John!
Yes, this was basically a test with my letter-sized sample pak.
Agreed on larger papers, that the border is a nice affect and look forward to trying the A3+ (13x19).
I've read less than positive reviews/comments on the Canon Pro Matte paper -- however, I really like the look.
I appreciate all your time in helping me with this issue.

To be clear-I’m not saying don’t use the Pro Matte. Just choose the options I gave so you can use the Pro Matte without the border. I’ve printed both ways and see no difference.

...yes, I understood that you meant only the paper selection on the PSP dropdown menu -- not the paper choice itself. I'm pleased with the printing results on the Canon Pro Matte.
Out of curiosity, as you mention using the matte paper -- does printing on matte tend to take a lot more ink? I'm on my setup cartridges and trying to be conservative with my paper testing with different photos.

Hi Lamont. I can’t provide info on ink usage for matte versus gloss papers.

Two things to look for: Canon periodically has free paper deals when you buy ink from their eStore. Also, Staples gives dollar rewards for recycling ink cartridges and has periodic sales on ink.

Does an equivalent workaround exist for the Windows driver?

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

Thanks, but that did not seem to do much on the Previews in PS or in the Print Driver, so I expect the largest print I can make on A3+ is 11.5x17.2.  I hoped your advice would allow me to defeat the 30cm margin, but apparently not.

You need to read the whole thread. Select Matte Photo Paper, not Premium Matte, select Minimize Abrasion and print from Manual Feed Tray.

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

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
