The successful studio or print shop looks to maximize efficiency in all of its processes. This is particularly true with in-house printing, which is why the ability to print borderless and eliminate a lot of needless trimming is so important.
Before printing borderless, examine the common output sizes and buy rolls that fit those sizes. For example, if the majority of your business is selling 8×10 units, then buy 10-inch rolls. If the majority of your sales are 24x20s and 24x30s, buy 24-inch rolls.
Once you have the proper roll sizes, you simply need to set up your workflow to execute the prints properly. Keep in mind that most printers cannot print borderless on sheets (the Epson 3880, 3800, R2880 and R2400 are the only two really designed for this).
Also, keep in mind that most printers can’t print borderless on all roll sizes. Check your owner’s manual to see which roll sizes your printer can print to successfully in borderless mode.
