How to Print a PDF With No Margin

Updated July 19, 2017

A PDF (Portable Document Format) file is a popular type of electronic document that was created by Adobe Systems. To print a border-free PDF file, you can use Adobe software programs (Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader) or your Mozilla Firefox Web browser to edit the document's margins. Depending on your chosen program, you can crop the document or simply change your printer settings to achieve your desired results.

Go to "Start," click "All Programs" and open Adobe Acrobat.

Click the "File" tab and open the PDF file you want to print.

Click the "Document" tab and select "Crop Pages." Next, select the "Remove White Margins" option in the "Margin Controls" dialogue box and click "OK." The margins on your PDF will be cropped.

Click the "File" tab and click "Print."

Go to "Start," click "All Programs" and open Adobe Reader.

Click the "File" tab and open your desired PDF file.

Click the "File" tab and select "Print."

Click the "Properties" button, check the box next to "Borderless Printing" and click "OK." Next, select the "None" option from the "Page Scaling" drop-down menu.

Click "OK" to begin printing your PDF.

Open your Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

Click the "File" tab and select "Open File." Locate the PDF file you want to print and click "Open." Your PDF will appear in your web browser window.

Click the "File" tab and select "Print." Next, click on the "Properties" button and check the box next to "Borderless Printing." Click "OK" to save your settings and return to the main printing dialogue box.
