Printer printing bigger than actual size.

Discussion in 'Printing & Print Design Forum:' started by Chris Wiltshire!, Sep 7, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I have a HP printer and I have set my illustrator document to 50mm wide by 85mm height, but however when it prints the actual sizes measures 53mm by 88mm.

    I have been trying to figure it out but I still can find anything :icon_confused:

    Theres obviously something that is set to make it go 3mm wider on both width and height but I just cant find anything...

    Any suggestions?

    It's adding a margin to account for printer bleed.

    Try setting custom trim settings of 0 in the print menu.
