    My wallpaper people, whats your process to print wallpaper??

    I am going crazy trying to figure this out. We are just getting into wall coverings and I really need some direction.
    For reference, I am using the Latex 360, HP PVC-Free Wallpaper, and the Onyx RIP.

    I have the files panelled, but when I go to print them, they print with a margin. An HP rep told me to select the media size in Onyx as (size)":NM. Well it didnt work and no one ANYWHERE seems to have any more information.
    Am I to print without a margin and trim?? I do not have a trimmer that size!

    Someone please guide me because I have no idea what I am doing LOL
    TIA!

    If I I derstand you correctly, you are trying to print right to the edge do you don't have to trim the graphics after they are printed?

    If so, it's not going to happen, even if the printer is capable of printing to the edge, if there is any drift in the media your panels won't line up.

    The HP Latex 360 and up you can print this borderless. You need to swap in the ink tray and select edge to edge printing when loading the material. In onyx choose the no margin media size and it should give you .125" overprint.

    When I do this, somehow the printer still defaults to having a margin. I've tried moving the substrate in the machine
    Would you suggest that I trim the margins myself rather than print full bleed? If so, whats the best way to trim them? I do not have a fotoba cutter and don't plan to invest in one anytime soon.
