Most desktop printers do not print to the edge; they require some margin space.
For example Epson 1200 margins are listed as
top .12 in 3mm
bottom .55 " 14mm using standard printable area
left .12 " 3mm
right .35 " 9mm for letter & legal
right .12 " 3mm for other paper sizes
I print 8x10 (inches image on US letter size paper 8.5x11 inches, then either
trim it to 8x10 or trim to leave a small uniform white border.
