Edge Printing

Product Name: AltaLink C8030 / C8035 / C8045 / C8055 / C8070 Color Multifunction Printer
Operating System: Windows 10

I am in the process of developing a tool in Excel that prints out Hazardous Material Labels from blank labels.  I have everything working great except 1 thing.  There is a text line at the very bottom edge of the DOT Label for constituent listing.  Since the printer forces a tiny margin, that block of text will not correctly align with the bottom of the label.  

I am currently using the setting of A5 both in excel and on the printer itself with a label inserted sideways (and upside down) into Tray 5 bypass.  I experimented with a lot of paper size settings to even get the printer to accept the label as A5 as most of the other paper settings produces a wrong paper size error.  The label backing paper is 189mm x 142mm with the actual label being 165mm x 141mm.  

Is there a paper setting I can trick the printer into accepting that will allow me to adjust the printed lines into all blank areas of the label including the very bottom of the label? (Like a larger paper size that it won't kick back as incorrect)

Here is a link to a Universal Waste Label to visualize the bottom blank line I am trying to fill:
