php – Print margins in DOMPDF

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I’m trying to generate a PDF using DOMPDF.
I have some HTML which is then converted into a PDF.

But I have a problem. When I put an object at the top of the page (e.g. an icon), in the PDF it’s also show on the top of the page.
But when I print the PDF there is a margin. I know that there has to be a minimal margin, but in my case it’s just too large.
Is there some way to control this margin in DOMPDF?

I’m trying to reproduce an existing document and in the original the logo is not on the top of the page (there is already a margin in the PDF). But when I print it, it’s located at the exact same position as in the PDF generated by me (and there is no margin in the PDF).

Is there somewhere a print margin already set in the PDF?

How to&Answers:

The following style will effectively set the margins of your document to 0:

@page { margin: 0px; }
body { margin: 0px; }

@page is used by dompdf 0.6.0, body by dompdf 0.5.1. You can modify the margin of the page and body independently, though right now the margin of the two together acts as your content bounds.


sometimes you also need to set

html { margin: 0px}
