We have this program that is printing out drawings from eDrawing or Solidworks, but each time we print there is a border printed around the page about 0.4 inched in on the paper.
I have attached the code used to print drawings.
Can someone please help me figure out if there is something in this code that is causing the drawings to be printed with a border around them?

Cant see anything in the code. What happens when you print them directly? Does it print with borders?
