I have been trying to print up these pages with an ornamental border that says it is for a page 8.5 x 11 but everytime I try to print the page the bottom of the border is cut off even though I am using a page size 8.5 x 11 and when I go into margins I get this message "Note: The margins and border width are disabled when a custom border image is in use. The margin and border settings in the Border Tab will be applied to the page and may not be modified." anyway around this?

re: Printing up album pages!

It appears that your printer cannot print those pages at full-size. My previous printer was the same with Steiner pages. I now have a new printer that can. So, one option is to buy a new printer Surprise

Anyway, with the Steiner pages and my old Dell printer, when the print parameters page came up prior to my executing the print job, I had to select the scale under Print Handling to "Fit to Printer Margins". That permitted the borders around the page to be printed. It will also cause the overall page to be printed a little bit smaller. Most of the times this was not a problem. Once in a while the spaces for the stamps were a little bit too small with the stamp mounts slightly overlapping the spaces underneath. Not a major problem, though.

Check your printer manual. Some printers will print all the way to the edge, some require 1/4" clearance and others (usually older printers) require 1/2" clearance from the edge of the paper.

Yeah, I came across some Steiner pages from ebay where all the pages were shrunk. Dp not select the "shrink to fit option" for PDFs!

Here is a possible fix.
If you have a master page, estimate how much you would need
to move the bottom frame up to clear the bottom of the print.
Carefully cut your master across from side to side, then
glue the two halves back together with an overlap that will
raise the bottom the estimated (measured) amount. When your
printer makes a copy it will enlarge what you put under the
glass to compensate for the problem.

I had a document that I wanted to put all on one page. I made
two copies, one with the top lined up, the other with the bottom
lined up. Then I cut the small part off the bottom I needed
(About three lines. I attached it, adjusting so that the missing
sentences were now on the bottom. Then I trimmed an equal amount
from the top so my master was just the right 11" height.
The printer then creased the whole page just fine. I then used
the first complete page as a new master and the very slight fine
line where I had the overlap was no longer visible.
Might work if you use your imagination.
