So I've been all over the Internet trying to find a solution to my problem -- couldn't get Word to print to a pdf without a white border around the page. I finally figured it out, and I hope it works for you!

In Word file, go to Page Setup:
Settings - Page Attributes
Format for - Any Printer
Paper Size - click here and then click on Manage Custom Sizes

Click + to add new size - name it PDF borderless
Click in the paper size boxes to make 8.5 x 11 (or whatever you need)
Make sure Non-Printable Area says User Defined, and change margins in boxes to 0
Click OK

Go to Print menu:
Printer - choose any
Presets - Standard
Click on PDF - Save as PDF
Choose file name and save location
Click Save

Voila! I'm so happy!!
