Also minimize your margin settings on the printer. It is very rare when this technique doesn't work.
That works very well when the image is an A4, but I had created a number of images at 13" high. For example, I scanned my big He-177 kit by Fly Model, stitched the pages back together in the graphics editor I use, fixed the camo color problems, and then copied & pasted model parts to blank 8.5x14 sheets. Laser printers often add a default top margin, so adding paper to the bottom is best. Doesn't matter for an inkjet. Of course, be careful which side you add the tape to.... guess how I know about that!
