how can I change the print margins on my receipts?

My print margins are set such that receipts print out in multiple sections. As of yesterday, receipts would print all the info required (40-column w/item #) on one long roll, then cut for a 2nd copy. Today, the receipts are printing in 6 sections, then cutting for another 6-section copy.

I found where to preview each receipt, but there doesn't seem to be a way to reset it to 'normal'. Readding the printer didn't help. And I've checked all settings against another location's print settings - they all match!

Any suggestions on how to change the vertical dimensions of the printable page to match whatever is being printed? Or maybe the question is, how do I stop the random cutting between top and bottom of each copy?


Hi there, rrebecchi,

I can help change the print margins on your receipts.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Pick Print Designer.
  3. Choose Sales Receipts for the Document Type.
  4. Select your preferred template from the Available Templates section.
  5. Hit Modify.
  6. Select the area on the receipt that you wish to customize/edit.
  7. Once done, click OK.

Now you can try printing a receipt to see if it works.

Don't hesitate to let me know if there's anything else you need concerning QuickBooks. Have a great day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
