Print directly from Adobe Illustrator (CS4+)

I’ve used these settings on a Lexmark X4650, but it will do fine on other printers too, if you want to make sure all measurements resemble on paper.

Lexmark print dialog

  • Check off ‘print last page first’ (when using artboards things can get tricky)
  • Choose print quality

Illustrator print dialog

  • Media size: A4 borderless (do not use borderless printing in the Lexmark print dialog, it uses a slight resize)
  • Do not scale (make sure you use correct size on design, artboards can be resized easily with the artboard tool Shift + O)
