Lightroom Classic: Printing with border but on larger paper than frame

Hey!

I have been trying to work this out for days without wasting paper so thought i would ask some experts.

I have A3+ paper (329x483mm) and want to print for a frame that is 300x400mm.

i would like a 20mm border around the image but would like to make only two cuts to minimize mistakes. I thought making the cell size 280x380mm would be a good start.

My brain is fried thinking about this so please help!

I think you want 260 by 360. That gives you 20 mm on all sides.

Yes it would do but that would mean i need to make 4 cuts to the paper. I was hoping to only make 2 so i wanted to push the image into a bottom corner leaving a 2cm border from edge of o=paper to image

@jeffgo calculations are correct for the photo dimensions.

Il y a des limites imposées par le driver d'impression, par le type de papier utilisé, ces paramètres maximums sont imposés par le fournisseur de l'imprimante, il faut régler taille du papier A3+ et le type de papier avant de vouloir placer le cadre de l'image ensuite vous verrez bien jusqu'à quel format vous pourrez imprimer avec votre imprimante, et imprimez dans un fichier pour vous rendre compte de l'aspect pour ne pas gâcher du papier et de l'encre ! 😊

These settings should work.  I didn't create an actual print on my Canon Pro 100 but the dimensions were good on the Lightroom preview.

Just type in the margin values and the cell size should adjust.
