The following is a hack to allow you to print 11x14 borderless for these Canon printers:
- Pro9000 / Pro9000 MkII
- Pro9500 / Pro9500 MkII
Please follow the instructions carefully for best results.
Note - Hacks are by nature not perfect. There is a chance this could not work for you or you may have a small white margin that remains. If you follow all of the instructions this should work. If it does not, there are no further suggestions we can make to fix the issue.
Choose an image and go to the Print module
Click Page Setup in the lower left corner of your screen.
In the Print Setup dialog click on Properties.
- Click on the Page Setup tab
- Set Page Size to 11x17
- Orientation to Portrait
- Click on the Borderless option under Page Layout
- Set Amount of Extension to maximum, the setting to the far right
Once you've set your media type, quality, and color management options on the Main tab you can click OK.
Back in Lightroom, locate the Layout menu on the right side of your screen. Set the following:
- Margin Bottom - 3 inches
- Cell Size Height - 14 inches
- Cell Size Width - 11 inches
The preview should now look like this. You may notice a small white strip at the top of the image. This will not appear on your print. In some cases, there may be a small white stripe at the end of your print. So far we have not been able to correct the roughly 1/8" unprinted area. You may experiement with the margin and cell sizes if you want to try and avoid the issue.
Provided you followed the above directions, you should now have a (very nearly) borderless 11x14 print!
