Epson 3880 Printing Large from Front Tray has HUGE margins
Oct 1, 2013

I rummaged the web to see if I could find anything, looked in here, and even read the manual.  None of which means it isn't obvious, but I just printed a 16x22 on posterboard using the front loading tray on my epson 3880.

Did exactly the same thing I always do when printing except I changed sheet to front tray.  I've created user sizes before, and did so again, creating a 16x22 size to match the limitations of the front paper feed.

Printed fine but I got BIG margins on all 4 sides.  I didn't tell it to print borderless, so I was expecting the usually 1/8" margins I always get, but in this case my size margins are 5/8" and the top and bottom are 3/4".

Is there some setting I need to change?  The front paper feed SAYS it's limited to 16" paper, so I did a 16x22" print.  Is there some spot in the manual that says "if you don't do X, you'll get gigantic margins when using the front paper feed?"

What am I missing?
