is there a possibility to set the margins of the printing page for a grid? 

 <ej:Grid runat="server" ID="Grid" AllowPaging="true" AllowSorting="true" AllowSelection="false" Locale="de-DE">
      <ToolbarSettings ShowToolbar="true" ToolbarItems="printGrid" />
      <ClientSideEvents BeforePrint="beforePrint" />
           <ej:Column Field="id" HeaderText="Pat. Id" TextAlign="Left" Width="100" />
           <ej:Column Field="name" HeaderText="Vorname" />
           <ej:Column Field="givenname" HeaderText="Nachname" />
           <ej:Column Field="geburtsdatum" HeaderText="Geburtstag" TextAlign="Center" />
           <ej:Column HeaderText="Status" Field="state" Template="#columnTemplate" TextAlign="Center" />

Kind regards

Hi Jens, 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Forums. 
QUERY: set margin for printing 
From your query we understand that you need to set margin to the grid while printing it. As you have tried, you can use beforePrint event and set css for the grid. 
In the beforePrint event, the argument has the page element to which you can set style. 
Please refer the below code, 
    function beforePrint(args) { 
        args.element[0].style.margin = "70px"; 
If you have further queries, please get back to us.
