Microsoft Word automatically creates a border of blank space on each side of a page to ensure uniformity in document page sizes and to avoid having any portion of the document cut off. However, when printing pictures or documents with coloured backgrounds, you may want to eliminate the thin white border so you can print to the very edge of the page. Word gives users the option of printing a borderless document or image, but you must have a printer that supports borderless printing.
