Once you have your funeral program completed to your satisfaction, you are now ready to print. Programs are ready to print to your color printer if you choose to print them on your printer. In order to print the funeral program "full bleed" or all the way to the edge of the paper, you will need to have a printer that prints borderless letter size paper. You can check to see if your printer has this capability by do FILE > PAGE SETUP and choose letter size paper. If you have the borderless option, then your printer will display a letter size borderless option for you to select.
If it does not have this option for pinting, you still have a printable funeral program but when it prints, there will be a 1/4" white border all around the perimeter of the program. You can trim this white border if you so desire. Alternatively, you can take your program to a nearby office supply store or economy printing service to get produced.
