Most laser and inkjet printers do not support borderless printing. They must leave an unprinted area around the edges of the paper to prevent toner from getting on the parts of the printer that move the paper. For printers that do not support borderless printing, the imageable area of the paper is smaller than the paper dimensions.

Use PrintDocumentImageableArea objects primarily as parameters to the CreateXpsDocumentWriter methods.
