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.

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.

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