Printable area

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

The printable area of a document is the portion where a printing device can write. On most printers, this includes all space except the extreme edges of the document.

Printable area depends on your printer. When laying out your document in an application for printing, always perform a Print Preview to ensure that everything you need displays in the printable area.
