How to Print MS Publisher Documents Without Borders

Updated March 23, 2017

Microsoft Publisher is an program used for complex layouts, such as web pages, brochures and flyers. Publisher has many design features, such as customisable borders that you can place around the pages in a document. You can add borders around a page using the "Rectangle" tool in the "Objects" toolbar, then either select a line type or a pre-designed pattern under "Border Art." If you've added a border and decide that you no longer want it, it's easy to get rid of the border before printing.

Open an existing Microsoft Publisher document containing borders.

Click to select the outline of the border that you want to remove. If you have a border on a master page, click the "View" menu, then select "Master Page" before selecting the border.

Press "Delete" to remove the border. Repeat these steps for each border that you want to remove.

Prepare to print the document by connecting a printer to the computer.

Click the "File" button in the top left corner (Publisher 2010) or the "File" menu (Publisher 2007). Click "Print." Change any print settings that you need, such as the number of copies and range of pages, and select the installed printer. Click "Print."
