What are the borderless capabilities of the iPF printers?


  • Sheets - borderless on the lateral edges is supported, but full borderless isn't, because the printer doesn't have anywhere for the ink on the top and bottom to go, it only has areas for the lateral overspray.
  • Rolls - full borderless is supported

Borderless is only supported at certain paper widths, as shown in the table below. The information is taken directly from Canon brochures, so is presumed to be correct:

For undocumented reasons, some media types disable borderless printing for roll paper. Kier Darby found that the 'Coated Paper' media type, which he used with Canon Coated Matt Paper loaded, was one of these media types that disallows borderless printing.
