What's the name of a canon printer that can print A3 size bond paper?

There are many A3 Canon printers, but let me mention two, one's the cheapest and the other one of the most reliable.
1. Canon BJC-5100 is the cheapest and one of the smallest A3 printer ever. It costs around $50.
2. Canon Laser Shot LBP3500 is another reliable and affordable Laser A3 printer. It costs around $850 to $900 (prices may vary).

These are not the only available Canon A3 printer, there are many more, you'll be able to find the best suit for your needs and requirements. Almost all printer supports bonded papers (like executive bond), there's nothing to worry about, but note that some don't support Photo paper or Thick/heavy paper.
For more details visit the canon website (click here to find out more A3 canon printers).

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Loading your paper
Paper loading tips:
● Load paper with the side to be printed facing down.
● You can print photos and documents on a wide variety of paper sizes, from
8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
(4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.
● Before loading paper, pull the Main paper tray out (use the Main tray release or
the tray grips) and slide out the paper-width and paper-length guides to make
room for the paper. After loading paper, adjust the guides to fit close to the edges
of the paper without bending the paper. When finished loading paper, push the
Main tray back in all the way.
● Load only one type and size of paper at a time in the same tray.
● After loading paper, extend the Output tray extension to catch your printed pages.
Use the directions in the following table to load the most commonly used paper sizes
into the printer.

When I insert the 4x6 paper portrait it won't advance it to print.

You are probably using a glossy paper or photo paper 230gsm or above, some printers are having a hard time feeding with those kind of papers, try using lower than 230 gsm.

R1800 Borderless Printing Problem

Hi Tom, Have you downloaded the latest driver from the Epson web site. Also make sure the output tray is in the correct position and that you are using the correct paper. You can use the following media with this feature: Matte Paper - Heavyweight A3+, A3, A4 Premium Glossy Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 in.), 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m (Roll paper) Premium Semigloss Photo Paper A3+, A3, A4, 329 mm x 10 m, 210 mm x 10 m, 100 mm x 8 m (Roll paper) Archival Matte Paper A3+, A3, A4 Watercolor Paper-Radiant White A3+ Velvet Fine Art Paper A3+ Ensure the output tray is in the correct position as if the tray is too low and the paper "falls" down into the tray the weight of the paper could pull the last few millimeters of paper out of the exit rollers, causing the band.
