PDF Image Printer

The Adding Borders to Page feature is used to add a custom-colored margin around the page. This feature will shrink the page contents to fit inside the bordered area.

A common use of this feature would be to create a white border in order to create space to add a watermark to the header or footer of a page where the page contents previously went right to the edge of the page.

All adding border settings are controlled through the profile.

Step by Step Instructions
