Default Changing borderless paper sizes - where is A5?


Hi.
I am trying to print borderless cards using Windows XP home edition, Illustrator CS, and an HP5550 printer. I am seeking to print a picture and text on a single piece of A5 card so that when it is folded in half, I get an A6 picture on the front and the text on the A6 space on the back. However when setting up the print details, I am only offered a choice of four borderless sizes, none of which are A5. Is there any way I can adjust the settings in Illustrator CS so I can get a custom A5 borderless print? Or is this a feature of the printer? If so, can this be set up to offer me an A5 borderless print?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Nick

Under new do***ent click custom and type in your measurements, make sure when printing page orientation is set right. Does your printer print "borderless" or are you printing in the center of an A4 and cutting?

Thanks, Jacob and Heather, for your replies. Jacob, There are no custom settings for borderless printing, though there are user defined ones for standard printing. Heather, I have tried putting in the required measurements in the new do***ent section, and getting the back and front of the card - ie the front page and the back page before folding - to fit the do***ent outline. But I am still left with only four borderless options when it comes to printing - Borderless Photo 4x6 in with tab; Borderless Photo 4x6 in; Borderless Hagaki Card 100x148 mm; and Borderless A6 card 105x148.5 mm. I am trying to print onto a prepared A5 sized piece of card. I hope this helps.
Best wishes
Nick

hi nicholas,

borderless printing seems to be a feature of your hp printer.
under windows some printer drivers give you the possibility to define user
specific papersizes. try to do this first - then restart illustrator >> go
to file>printer setup and lookup for your new paper definition >> then,
under file>do***ent setup choose use printer settings.

sorry if upper used menu phrases aren't exact - i'm a german guy and working
with the german illu 10
