View Full Version : Each business card stretched itself across the page!

Hi all.
I made some business cards the other day on my computer, and, after using the nudge adjustment, they came out fine. The next day I was going to print some more, and... the cards just stretched themselves across the page! The only thing that I did differently is that I changed the graphics put out from "standard" to "photo" quality. It's a Canon 4300. I emailed them but they said to be patient because they get a lot of emails.

There must be some silly, simple reason for this but I'm stumped. Any advice would surely be appreciated.

Hi Lenora
What package are you using to make your cards?

I don't know what software you are using. I use Corel WordPerfect. My standard settings are set at 'view margin width'. So when I do labels or business cards, I see the card all the way across the screen unless I choose another view, such as full page, or 75%, or whatever. Chances are that your cards were fine and that it was only the 'view' that was strange.

The software I used is Color Store that came with Canon Creative. The cards printed out fine the first time.

The second time, they stretched themselves across, the page, each card. It's not the view, because the view was fine, but the printer put them out stretched out like that. I'll have to experiment with it.
