Curious.  

Which colour laser are you tailking about which puts borders around the paper?  It shouldn't I believe but I stand to be corrected.

I searched for quite a while, and about the only printers I found that could print borderless were "photo" printers.  We use a Canon and an HP color laser at work for proofing, and the only way we have ever printed full bleed pages was to use oversize paper and trim down.  It may be that we do it this way because printers do it this way in production.  They use 12" X 18" paper to print a 11" X 17" job and trim it down to the trim marks that are provided in the art.  

I am sure that there are some printers that can print a full bleed a4 sheet on a4 paper, but I could not find them.  You might try QMS - they make a lot of printers for proofing use, and I know that some of them can do borderless pages.

www.qms.com

Good luck - I am sure it can be done - but not with every color laser printer.

Sorry.  Misunderstood the question.  Gotcha.  You mean print to use the whole page.  No margins.

I spent some time on the QMS/Minolta page, and all of the color printers have a 4mm border on all 4 edges.

Have you looked into thermal transfer and dye sublimation printers?  They may be able to do this, but I have no experience with them at all.

You might try posting a question for 0 points in the graphics - general area that points to this one.

There are a lot of people that answer questions there that seem to have experience with pre-press issues, which does not amaze me as I think many of them work in the graphic arts field.

I just noticed that you accepted my comment as an answer, so posting a link in the graphics area will not work since people would have to "pay" points to read it and not be able to comment.

You might try posting the same question there (graphics general).  If you are out of or very low on question points, reply to this and I will post your question.  You awarded me the points, and since my comment turns out not to be a solution, it's the least I can do.
