    I have purchased some 8x10 paper, but I am having difficulty finding what 8x10 is in my printer. It prints 8.5 x 11, than you have to cut off the border if you want it to be 8x10. However if I used 8x10 paper, what would I set it to? My options are the following:

    Letter(8.5x11)
    A4
    4x6
    10x15
    A6
    Hagaki
    L
    2L
    A5
    3,5x5
    5x7
    13x18cm
    B5

    Now some of these settings are more obvious to me than others. Hwever if I want to print my photo on 8x10 paper what should I set my printer to? I will have to go with the no border option because I want the total photo dimensions to be 8x10(Which is standard portfolio size, correct?). Also a couple people on this forum suggested that I purchase a paper cutter, could someone please elaborate on how I should pick one out and how to use it? Thank you all for your time.

    On second thought, I just re-read what ya posted and the paper is 8x10....hmmmm wonder if this would cause alignment problems ...make sure you have th elatest drivers for your printer. U may wish to check lexmark.com and see

    My Epson driver lets me make a custom paper size. Hopefully the Lexmark one will let you do that too. Does your printer do edge-to-edge printing? If not, you might want to stick with 8.5x11, as the bottom margin can often be rather big.
