ResolvedGreeting Crad margins

Why does the first page of a per-deigned halffold greeting card have a wider margin? How can I make the margins equal all around?

Philip,

In order to assist you, we would need a bit more information.  Which version of Greeting Card Factory are you working with?  Also, if possible, can you tell us which greeting card you are seeing this with?  It would help for us to be able to look at the same card you are looking at.

Best answer!

Philip Fragale says:

I am using version Card Studio 2011. I was creating several halffold cards, Day by day, pets, blank cards.  I am not sure if the right margin should be wider and it needs to be cut it off or if there is a problem in printing. Please clarify?

Thanks,

 

Phil

Philip,

Thank you for the additional information.  Without looking at the exact same card that you are looking at, I cannot tell whether the card was designed that way or something else is affecting the margins.  Could you please provide me a specific card example where you are seeing this?  Please provide an example from the pre-designed card projects and not the blanks.

The category is Day By Day" under "Pets" and the inside of the card is blank.  This is a pre-designed card not from scratch.   Its the card with the dog holding a shoe in its mouth.  Hope this helps.

Philip,

Thank you for providing me directions to get to the same card you are working with.  I just took a look at that card.  I checked the margins for that card in the Setup menu.  I do not see any difference in the Margin settings.  Both the Left & Right Margins are set to ".5000".  These margins are applied to both the inside and outside of the card.  What are the settings showing in your Hallmark Card Studio 2011?

Philip,

Thank you for confirming that for me.  I think I may have mis-understood your original question.  Where are you seeing the larger margins?  Is it when you print out the card?  Or are you seeing it on the Print screen within Hallmark Card Studio?  Or are you seeing it somewhere else?

Philip,

Thank you for clarifying that point for me. 

If the larger margins are appearing on the print output and not in the program, then I think the issue lies with your printer.  It sounds like it is enforcing a margin or possibly having an issue with the paper size.  Are you printing to a standard 8.5x11 paper size?  If not, what size paper are you printing onto?

Philip,

That is strange.  I do not see that happening when I print to an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. I get a print out that matches what is shown on the Print screen in Hallmark Card Studio.

Can you double-check what is showing as the paper size in your Printer Preferences?  I would imagine that it is set to either Letter or 8.5x11, but I would like to double-check it.  If possible, it is better to access it outside of the program.  So, you can go to the Control Panel - Printers and then right-click on the printer's name.  You will select Printing Preferences from the pop-up menu.  Let me know if the default paper is set to something other than Letter or 8.5x11.

Philip,

I am not sure what is happening.  The only thing that I can think of is that something in your printer's settings may be enforcing an additional margin.  You may want to check your printer's setting to see if you can find an option like this.  You may need to consult your printer's manual. 

Please let us know if you discover anything with your printer settings.  It may help someone experiencing a similar problem in the future.

I was able to resolve this issue.  The problem was that my printer has the capabilty of printing on both sides of the paper automatically.  I turned off this capability and the card printed with even margins.

I appreciate all your help.  Hopefully this will help someone else.
