  I have an A2 printer, I've not seen A2 paper but its bigger than A3.
This is an Epson Stylus Color 3000 printer.  It's big enough it can
print A3 in landscape. And, it's free!

At the back is the old sproket wheels where you could find some
continuous paper and feed it in for banners.  I've misplaced the rollers
at the back so I'm not sure how useful that feature is (If I find it I
can post them).

At the front of the printer is your normal flat-sheet feeder. You can
put A4,A3 or (I assume because it extends out) A2 paper in.  I ran a
self-test on it tonight and after a few cleanings it printed out fine.
Red blurs a little but that may be my cheap paper I'm trying it on.

The printer has been used probably less than 10 times and has spent its
life in a cardboard box in various garages.  I've moved this several
times and this time is the last. The inks are what we got it with. They
are old but still work fine.

If you like a photo, see http://www.enc.com.au/~csmall/printer1.jpg
the gaps in the print-out are the small characters and the camera
taking it, there are letters there, just things like ~ and `

First come first served.  I'll be getting rid of it one way or another.
