Inkjet printers by default slightly expand your image when printing borderless. This is to make sure that ink extends past the borders. But did you know you can control the expansion amount and in some cases turn it off totally? Well here is a short look at the controls on your printer. Break out your printer manual and read up on the feature as well.

HP calls borderless expansion "Overspray". The function can be adjusted by selecting Change and clicking the Change button.

 

Mac Guide to Inkjet Borderless Expansion

Different versions of the OS can make the following dialogs look slightly different or even be in a different location. If you do not see the expansion controls in the Print dialog try looking in the System Extensions > Printers and Faxes dialog.

Note: Before these controls will be active, you must choose a borderless paper size from the Paper Size drop down menu.
