When printing an edge to edge graphic, it is best to have the graphic properly sized to the dimensions of the card (1024 dots x 640 dots, 3.41” x 2.13”) and a graphic resolution of at least 600 dpi (dots per inch).

Positioning of the image on the card can be adjusted in the ZXP Toolbox under ‘Printer Settings’ in the Print Position box. The ZXP Toolbox provides advanced configuration capabilities and tools to manage the operation of your printer.
