Hi, brand new here, and just getting started with an Epson 3880 and some printing.

I had a quick question about Rotatrim trimmers.....

I am considering buying the 18" version, but my question is, how do you ever get accurate cuts on sheets of paper that are more than 12" long? In other words, if I start with an 11" x 17" sheet of paper and want to make an 11" x 14" print, how do I line it up so that's it's not going 2" off of the board/ruler, since the other dimension is 12"? (not the blade side, the side perpendicular to that).

Maybe I'm missing something?

Thank you so much for any help. Cheers.

The easiest way is to print your image on the 11x17 sheet before trimming it, and then after printing trim it to match the print.

I should've probably been more clear ... the problem is that I'll be producing fine art prints with white border all the way around for numbering/signing. If it was right up to the image area, I'd imagine it being much easier.
