Question Setting background image to cover all of page in Word document

I want to have an image as background in Microsoft Word 2013. I tried the watermark, but it was being difficult and would not cover the page 100%. I also used the header route.



Then I used the image as background, with text over it. It works as expected, except that there is a 1/4" (quarter inch) white margin around the image.

By the way, I found this margin in all methods I tried.

How can I remove that margin, or is there a better way to set a background image?

The white margins are there because they represent a portion of the page that your printer cannot print on. Most printers have this limitation. To get a full-width page bleed, you need a printer that is capable of doing them (e.g. a photo printer).
