That sounds like a limitation of the printer. The reason for the margin
is that the printer needs some portion of the paper to grab a hold of to
run it under the print apparatus.

My suggestion, get thee to a papercutter and slice it to simulate it
going all the way to the edge.

This is assuming I'm understanding your issue.
