Get started with the easiest way to manage PDFs with PDFelement!

Have you ever wondered or need to learn how to print PDF without margins or how to print full page without white border PDF? The methods are easy, but you need to have the right tools. In essence, when you want to maximize the print area, you typically print PDF without margins. That helps optimize the content so the entire paper is used, and not just the area inside the borders, which are automatically applied when printing out PDFs. This not only helps you optimize the print job but also use less paper, thereby doing your bit to preserve the environment. So, let's look at some useful tools for how to print PDF without margins and get the most out of your paper printing jobs.

Part 1. Print PDF without Margins on Windows Using Adobe Acrobat

If you have Adobe Acrobat DC or Pro DC installed on your Windows or Mac, this process is relatively simple. Unfortunately, many users aren't aware of how to print full page without white border in PDF, so they just go with the default setting, which wastes a lot of paper. So, how to print PDF without margins in Acrobat? Let's see…

Acrobat

Step 1 Launch Adobe Acrobat on your computer

Step 2 Use the File → Open menu option to first open the PDF file you want to print

Step 3 Select the Document tab and choose the option to 'Crop Pages'

Step 4 Look in the Margin Controls dialog and choose Remove White Margins

Step 5 Clicking OK will remove the white borders on your PDF

Step 6 Proceed to print the document without margins using File → Print as you normally would

Note: You can also do this in Adobe Reader DC, in which case you can open the file, go directly to File → Print, then go to Properties and check the Borderless Printing checkbox; make sure the Page Scaling is set to None, then print the PDF without margins.

This is a great way to do it if you're already an Acrobat user, but what if you feel the tool is too expensive or you don't have it installed on your system? You can now move to the next method, which uses a versatile and highly affordable PDF editor called PDFelement.
