I am printing with a Epson 4880 on 10" roll paper. So I have the margins set to 9.77 borderless which shows up in Qimage as 10.002x8. The problem now comes when I try to print an 10x8. There is an 8th of an inch border on the right side of the print and the right side is missing that 8th of an inch. What do I need to do so that qimage prints a full borderless 10x8 on ten inch roll paper?
Thanks,
Todd K.

Trying to get exactly 10 inches to print across a 10 inch wide page can be futile. You'll usually end up with at least a small sliver missing/overrun on one side. You may have to go with at least a little expansion to solve it. It all comes down to driver settings. Here's an article that should help:

I do not know why this is a problem. It is pro printer, capable of borderless printing, expansion should not be necessary. The roll paper is lined up correctly, there is NO reason it should be doing this. when I put enter the paper size in the driver, as 10x8 and set it to borderless it shows up as being 10.233x8 in Qimage, then it prints the image to far to the left. I will print an 10x8 in photoshop and see what happens.

Did you read the article I posted? It explains exactly why this is a problem on all printers and it even explains the "retain size" option in Epson printers and why you see the paper as slightly wider than it really is, etc. It also goes into how to avoid off-center prints by making sure the prints are centered on the page.
