What program are you using to create the card? There should be an option in the 'page setup' to change margin sizes, but you also need to make sure the printer is aware of the size of paper you are using - putting A4 stock in when the printer thinks it is A5 is bound to produce a 'margin'.

Hi Johnr
Thanks for replying. I think I may have found my "problem". Have been trawling around, trying to see what I'd missed, back to page set-up, paper size was set at 8.5" x 11", which I took to be A4, but I think is the american size, I then found an option, and changed to A4, which I guess has probably solved it. Sometimes can't see what is in front of my eyes! The programme knows that I want an A5 card, it is programmed in as a folded card, so it recognises that. Many thanks for your helpl

Hi
Have selected best answer, but can I just say, to someone not vey computer literate, it isn't obvious which icon means "best answer". Perhaps you could make it clearer. I belong to a few forums which have a "thanks" icon, but haven't come across your thumbs up before, which could mean quite a few things. Not a complaint, just explaining why I didn't do it from the start. I did look for it, but couldn't figure it out. Many thanks.
