Hey guys, so i have a flyer all done up and ready but when i print i still get a thin little white border around the printout.
i have margins set to 0" all the way around and as yu can see from the screen shot - theres no border visible while i have the file open but when i print it out i still get a little white border as you can see from the screen shot.
How can i print it out without the little white border?
thanks.

shows without border when open in MS Word

after printing i get this little white border ...

Check in the Printer properties. The printer itself is set for a border. Different printer preferences are different, but here is mine for example

hey xhi, thanks.
when i saw your post - i was CERTAIN that would do the trick but it didnt work (???)
i noticed a bunch of other options labled "borderless" too but not sure if that shoul make a difference. either way im willing to try another suggestion or two before calling it quits cause i just noticed im super low on paper. any other thoughts?

Are you really sure a babysitter will care if there is a white border on the flyer.

im done. no more paper.
heres what i did ....
as per mikes suggestion ...
printed to pdf > opened up in reader > right clicked and exported to image. ended up with a great quality image of the flyer. 3K+ x 2K+ @ 906KB !
opened up in viewer > hit print > made sure borderless option was again checked in printers properties > and as per warlocks comment, i tried both before printing. toggled between fit to page and not - and both times ended up with the flyer printing WITH NO border ....
BUT it cropped a little bit of the flyer (both times).
would still say a 99.9% success!
thanks guys!

Understand your frustration, when things don't work as they should.
