The only way to print "to the edge" is to print first and create the edge
later. What I mean is, create a bleed and trim the paper.

The way to create a bleed varies from product to product, but in the end,
you have to cut the paper down to create the "to-the-edge effect." Printer
brand doesn't affect this, except some printers have a wider absolute margin
than others.

All the best.
