This example assumes that the size of the paper being printed to is larger than the publication page size.

Sub SetPrintersMarksToPrint() 
 With ActiveDocument.AdvancedPrintOptions 
 .PrintCropMarks = True 
 .PrintJobInformation = True 
 If PrintMode = pbPrintModeSeparations Then

 .PrintDensityBars = True 
 .PrintColorBars = True 
 End If 
 End With
