I am submitting digital images for a photo to possibly be included in a show. The final piece is small photos mounted on a black board that is 10" high x 15" wide. They will look best if the entire digital image background is black and has no white margins. I can do full bleed because the edges are black. How do I do that? Is it possible in Lightroom? I read in a Forum post that it is controlled by the printer driver for my Epson 3880. Is that true? Thank you.

The printer has to have the "borderless" option. If you are sending prints, then look for "Borderless" setting or set the margins to 0.0. Alternatey, print and trim the white edges off before sending.

If they are doing the printing and you are sending a JPEG or similar, then is out of your hands
