Default What page dimensions will work?

A potential new client needs a rework of her brochure, which is basically a price list. It's currently self-designed as a trifold A4, using the three inside columns plus the inside fold from the back, with a stapled strip as a fifth column to hold the extra information she needs. I can design it to fit in four columns at A4, but it would look crowded.

She has worked out herself that it requires a larger sheet of paper, but I don't want to push it up to A3.

She wants to go to full colour, and it will need a bleed on each edge, with printing on both sides.

What is the most economical page measurement to use for a sheet-feed press? She'll be happy with a trimmed sheet size between A4 and A3.

Do I need to select a printer before I start doing the design on this, and set the page size to suit the particular press, paper supplier and folding machine?
