Is there a way to get rid of the white border around a word document when all margins are already set to 0

I have a picture that I want to take up the whole screen when I print. In Print Layout view no white border shows, but when I do a print preview it shows. What I am wondering is if it is possible to get the ink all the way to the edge of the page, or is it not possible because the printer needs to 'grab' the paper before it can print and therefore, there will always be slight white margin (I say white because my picture is almost all black)

You are right about it being a printer limitation. The printer specification will tell you (proudly) if it can do borderless printing. There are quite a  few which will print borderless photos, but not many that do A4 or A3. Canon seems to specialise:

e.g.
Canon - IX4000 A3 Borderless Printer

I think there are a couple of Canon A4 printers called Pixma  which are also borderless.
