Printing PDFs - default to "fit to page"

A client is posting a PDF of their journal to their website. The journal has "tabs" within the 8.5" x 11" area but the text is sometimes cut off depending on the print margins of the printer. Rather than redesigning to try to accommodate more printer margins, is it possible to force a PDF to always fit to printer margins when printing?

Something to try —
In the Print dialog (when doing File > Print from Acrobat / Adobe Reader) try "Fit to Printable Area" or "Shrink to Printable Area".

Another consideration might be the document's value for margins.
Unless the printer / printer drivers support borderless printing most have a lower bounding value for margin.
If the document extends its margin(s) past these any content in the affected area won't be printed.

Be well...
