On the printer properties menu:

1. Click on the Features tab

2. Under Paper Size Opens choose Custom

Hint: The width is always the smaller dimension and the height is always the longer dimension of your paper, regardless of card orientation.

Paper Size Width Height
7x10 (A7) 7 10
6.25 x 9 (A6) 6.25 9
5.5 x 8.5 (A2) 5.5 8.5
8 x 9 (Pano) 8 9

2. Name - call the size something that is easily recognizable. Click the Save button if applicable.

3. Click OK

4. Make media and quality selections then click OK

STEP 5 - PRINTING

NOTE! Make sure orientation is set to PORTRAIT. If not, you will notice that the Print with Preview will look wrong.

Notice that the preview screen looks like the printed card should - the excessive white space is gone. The hash marks around the border represent your printer's margins.

You can now click print.

You may see this warning - if so, click proceed.

Congratulations! You have set up and printed a Red River Paper greeting card.
