Microsoft Publisher lets you print a graphic to the edge of a page.

Microsoft Publisher, a design package that includes templates and a clip art library, lets you create and print a variety of documents including calendars, newsletters and even business cards. The program also lets you convert any publication into a website. Microsoft Publisher even lets you print graphical elements to the edge of the page, known as assigning a bleed. But this feature works with your computer's printer driver and not all printers support to the edge printing.
