Inserting a pdf into a drawing without a border that prints.

I am trying to insert a scanned item in a pdf format into a drawing.  The problem is that when I insert the pdf a printable border goes in with it.  How do I get the border not to print or better yet not to showup at all?  I am running MEP 2013.

I think there are 2 ways to do this that I know of, although it's been a while. The first option is to bring the PDF into a pixel editing program, like paint,  and erase pixels you don't need, which works for other elements besides borders. Another option which may be easier for only borders is to use clipping on the PDF inside CAD.
