    My company purchased a L26500 last year to print all of our laminate decals in house. We have loved using the printer so far and had great results. Now I've been given the task to print some banners. I purhcased some 36" wide material and need to print them edge to edge (full bleed). I've read numerous threads here and done many google searches and have yet to figure out how to do this. I've played with just about every setting I could find and still continue to get "Media loaded is too small for this image" error when I try to print. I'm using Onyx Rip Queue 10.2. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

    Full bleed is not possible with any roll fed printer I know of. Here is the flop. You want a full bleed banner 36" x 96". You print the 36" x 96" then trim at 38" x 98". This gives and inch for banner tape and hem. Properly done the banner will "bleed" to the edge. Savvy?

    Down and dirty is to print the size you need then trim to the color and grommet.

    don't print full bleed, you risk printing all over your printer if you miss the banner.

    get 38" banner and do the job.
