Cut and Bleed on 2x6 Prints

Postby sustainednote » Fri Sep 17, 2021 4:42 pm

I have a DSP RX1-HS Printer and I'm using WifiBooth. I am printing mostly 2x6 strips by selecting the 2 strips portrait and having the DSP cut them for me. I haven't been able to find a setting in the "Layouts & Collages" that result in a clean cut without a white border around some unfortunate edge of each of the strips. The closest I got was no border, but then the logo at the bottom is cut off...

As seen in this photo: https://photos.app.goo.gl/QLuKFRUCUecAGgEi6

I'm currently set at

1% collage borders
1% inner border
Outer Borders ON
1% Outer border
0% Photo Border

I honestly don't really understand which each of these settings is referring to. Is there a diagram that can show me which elements of the photo these setting refer to?

Is this border clipping issue something I really must configure on my DSP printer? For such an expensive printer, it's quite daunting to try and configure.

Thanks!

You’re very close!
What you are looking for is called print insets (bleed) and is shown in the print popover once a printer is connected.
You can try adjusting these values and you’ll be able to tweak it for your printer

Thanks Tim. I didn't realize there are settings there. I'll try it!
