The margins were already specified and coded in. After adding them in using setPageMargins(0.1,0.1,0.1,0.1) I get the same results. I've attached a copy of where the footer is output to and the HTML for the footer.

Doesn't your HTML body have some margins?

Please try the following working example.

client = pdfcrowd.Client("your-username", "your-api-key")
output_file = open('/tmp/html.pdf', 'wb')
html="<head></head><body style='background-color: red'>My HTML Layout</body>"
client.setFooterHtml('<div style="background-color: blue; font-size: 8pt; font-weight: bold; float: left">HO/MH App</div>')
client.convertHtml(html, output_file)

If the problem persists still, please sen your main HTML, footer HTML and source code used to
