Setting the Stapling Margin

The procedure for setting the staple side and the margin width is as follows:

  1. Open the printer driver setup window

  2. Specify the side to be stapled

    Check the position of the stapling margin from Stapling Side on the Page Setup tab.
    The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. When you want to change the setting, select from the list.

  3. Set the margin width

    If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the margin width, and then click OK.


    • The printer automatically reduces the print area depending on the staple position margin.
  4. Complete the setup

    Click OK on the Page Setup tab.
    When you perform print, the data is printed with the specified staple side and margin width.


  • Stapling Side and Specify Margin... appear grayed out and are unavailable when:
    • Borderless, Tiling/Poster, or Booklet is selected for Page Layout
    • Scaled is selected for Page Layout (When Duplex Printing (Manual) is also selected, only Stapling Side can be specified.)
