Regular photo prints appear with white margins all around which are referred to as borders. This is unsightly since it reduces the overall effective surface area of the images. An HP Envy 4520 inkjet printer can deliver borderless photos.
Borderless photo printing also called full-bleed printing is a printing technique characterized by applying ink on the entire surface of the paper. Meaning it leaves no unprinted surface, prints extend from edge to the other edges of the paper. In the past where borderless printing is still not available, margins of printed photos are trimmed to achieve a borderless photo.
Borderless photos came into mainline preference because of the users various requirements. Some need borderless photos that can easily be framed, which is only possible if prints come from laboratories. Or necessary when using the images for scrapbook making or just simply on trying to save on the use of paper - photo paper is expensive. Others need to print images as part of a larger mosaic for billboards or banners.
Most new inkjet printers like the HP Envy 4520 supports borderless printing and can be accessed through the settings. It is actually a printing option and part of the print properties window that regularly appears when printing an image. Printer drivers for these new generation inkjets will slightly increase the image automatically to arrive at a truly borderless print.
And in most instances, the printer drivers allow ‘expansion’ or ‘extension’ of the amount of print coverage. This is especially true if the image to be printed is smaller than the paper to be printed on. This particular feature is part of the printer’s ‘auto fit ‘ program or ‘fit to page’ option that automatically adjusts the size of the image to fit the page to be printed on.
Lastly when images to be printed have margins, there is an option to do away with the margin before printing the image. Everything is covered, hp as a manufacturer have designed the HP Envy 4520 printers to meet every need and all features are for the users convenience. Borderless printing no longer is exclusive to photo labs, since homes and offices can produce it easily and conveniently.
Remember printing borderless photos does not need specialized printers, it is a regular feature of recently released inkjet printers like the HP Envy 4520.
