    Setting up a custom size printing template in lightroom

    SistahKeaton

      I am in the process of having a custom portfolio book made (size 9 1/4" x 12").  I will be doing the printing for the portfolio (Canon Pixma Pro 1), and then sending the prints to the builder for trimming/insertion into the book.  I've been instructed to have a binding area allowance of 1" on the left margin.  The actual image printable area thus becomes 8 1/4" x 12" per page in the book.  I will be printing the images on a 13" x 19" paper stock.

       

      How do I setup a printing template in Lightroom, for the print area (8 1/4" x 12"), centered, on the 13 x 19 paper, with cropping marks (for trimming)? Not all images will fill the printable area, (managed by cell size).  I have not been able to figure out how to so lock in place, the printable area on the paper size. I appreciate and help and guidance in accomplishing my template objective.
