    Default Printing to a inkjet printer

    I have an AI file that I want to print. The artboard is letter size 8.5 by 11. The items are exactly placed and I need them to print just as they are. When I export as a pdf or eps and place them indesign they print perfectly. However when printing with AI the scale is off. if I check do not scale it is too big. If I check scale to fit page then it is too small. I want it to be exactly as I laid it. What is the deal? There has to be a way to just print it like I made it. Does any of that make sense to anybody?

    Rick,

    I know it would only explain the too small thing, but have you looked for stray elements outside the artboard?

    Thanks Jacob,
    No there is nothing outside the artboard.

    Rick:

    I presume you have checked your page tile size. This is determined by your printer and is often smaller than a paper size because of edges needed for paper handling. Just a thought. steve
