  • I would like to copy from A4 to A3 is this possible for the Pixma 560?

    The Canon Pixma MP560 is capable of reducing or enlarging a copy by 25 to 400%. However it can not print onto media any larger than A4.

  • Can I do an A3 print using A3 paper and using the manual feed at the top / back of the printer?

    The Pixma MP560 is an A4 only printer and will not accept A3 sheets at all. It is also no longer in production. The following link contains our full rage of A3 printers
