When printing on a desktop printer, you may need to adjust the margins to accommodate the nonprintable area of the printer. If the margin size is smaller than the nonprintable area, the edges of some pages or some printer's marks may be clipped by your printer. You can compare the location of the margins to the nonprintable area of your printer by clicking "Non Printable Area" from the View menu in Print Preview.
When preparing a job for commercial press, the service bureau may request minimum margin sizes, such as for page grippers, and printers' marks.
