OK thanks. Will do.
Let me just ask this - when you use your paper size presets and you preview the image, do you see the 'zebra stripes' at all ?

None at all - ever, that I can remember.

Thanks for your help pointing me in this direction.

Ps>Print>Check the Center box

Set up custom paper size/s with 0 in all of the 4 margins.
You can enter a very small margin (.03 or .05) on 1 or 2 sides if necessary if there seems to be a slight paper shift, or just to compensate for an individual printer's idiosyncrasy. Just to nudge it.
Save as a preset.
I made separate presets for all my common paper sizes and a Vertical & Horizontal orientation version for each.

Ive tested it with some small size prints (6x4, 5x7, 8.5x11) and they all appear to be printing properly centred (within a very small tolerance).

I take that back - I seldom print in Photoshop - mostly LR except when I need Absolute Rendering Intent, which I did this morning. And YES, in the Photoshop Print Preview, I did see an extremely narrow band of hatched lines all around the perimeter of the image. I think this is simply the difference between the printable image size and the sheet size.

I stand to be corrected but I think it is aka 'non printable area'.

Perhaps the 'zebras' appear in the Ps preview because Ps doesn't know that you've assigned a custom size with 0 (zero) margins, or are using a borderless option

I am sure that there are some excellent solutions here.
I spent about a year of angst with a 3880 trying to get it to print the way I wanted it and remaking presets for each paper.  I was shown a printing programme called Mirage Print and haven't printed from an editing application since. It always comes out exactly the way it says. There are a number of printing programmes. So my advice is editing programmes for editing and printing programme for printing.

In my case, the zebras disappear with borderless option.
