Printer Margins, Headers and Footers

To make printed Invoices cleaner, or if you are using pre-printed letterheads, we recommend you adjust your browsers print and margin settings to suit.

These instructions will remove the page numbers, names and URLs from all documents printed from your browser.

  1. Click the Menu (3 vertical dots) button in the top-right corner.
  2. Click the Print item.
  3. Locate the Margins section.
    1. Change the Margins drop-down to: Custom
    2. Rollover the page preview and drag-and-drop the margins to your requirements.
  4. Locate the Options section.
    1. Untick the Headers and footers checkbox.

    • If this item is unavailable, your Printer may not support custom paper sizes and margins within Safari. Please consult the notes regarding Google Chrome above.
