White space on top and bottom of Word page when printing

Last Modified: 2012-05-11

I want to change background color of a word 2007 page and print the document.
I change the background color page from page layout -> page color and all seem fine
but when i print the page (or print preview it), it leaves a white space on top and bottom
of the page.
How can i fill all the printable print area of the page with color and remove these white spaces?

have a look to this screenshot: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/3/pageeb.jpg/

thank you
