Understanding Printer Margins

I thought I would put this up to help folks with their printing.

Here is a pair of grid squares. Each tiny square is one millimeter on a side. The larger squares are 10 by 10. The two PDF and one SVG documents attached have one of these in each corner. The A4 and Letter document will cover most folks. The SVG document is meant to be opened with Inkscape and adjusted to the page size you want to work with.

All you do is print it. If you print one of the PDF's, set "Page Scaling" to "None"

In each corner of your page, the outer grid square will be clipped. By counting squares, you should be able to determine the minimum margin size you can set for your printer.

As always, holler if you need more help.
