Need printer that will print to edge of paper

I have an HP970Cxi printer which does not - I believe in common with many inkjet printers - print to the edge of the paper. This is particularly annoying when I use it, together with my scanner, for photocopying and the document to be photocopied is printed to the edge of the paper. I have to shrink the image - less than satisfactory when printing is already small.

Obviously real photocopiers print to the edge of the paper. What printer must I use to be able to do this? Am I limited to laser printers or do laser printers have this problem too?

Would be grateful for any advice here.

in your printer properties set up the page borders as zero this should work with most printers.

The Canon S520 does this, pretty fast and a good photo printer. Regards, Kevin

I have the Epson 950 photo printer. A bit pricey at £350 (some would say) but it is superb and prints right up to the very edge.

7 seperate ink cartridges (2 x black) about £10 a shot but the results are worth it.
