Given that the original post said:

"small printer for low volume good quality color and black and white printing"

And given that currently you can get the Canon Pro 100 (including inks) with 50 sheets of 13 x 19 pro luster paper for $99.00 ($300 rebate) I'd say that your review and recommendation is right on the money rgs, and Robert Candido's original reference to it, as well.

One of many sellers:  http://www.adorama.com/ICAPRO100.html?utm_source=RSYS&utm_medium=TransactionalEmail&utm_campaign=1point0product

Holy smokes what a deal.  Print your stuff and throw it away if you don't like it for that price.

Yikes!

Business opportunity: contact some chinese manufacturer of frames in bulk. Order 10.000 frames at 18"x24" and 10.000 acid-free passepartouts. Ought to be only slightly more expensive than regular sizes.
I come accross this often. The problem being storage space.

Sell to photography shops and similar.

"Photography shops"? What were they?

"Photography shops"? What were they?
Where I live, you will have large shops selling cameras, printers, printer-paper, etc (think B&H). They typically don't sell frames. I'd suggest that they might sell plain frames that fit standard printer(paper) sizes at reasonable prices if it was available. "Black simple frame, glass, A3+, pre-cut portrait/landscape white passpartout, " $50 seems about right, perhaps $100 if the finish was good.

You will also have "frame stores". These seems to not care much about the photography market, but they will happily (custom) frame a photographic image at significant cost (I paid $300 a piece). I don't think that they would understand the significance of "A3+" and 3:2 aspect ratio.

I looked at ordering custom complete frames from americanframe.com ($64 a piece), but shipping to Europe doubled that amount, and local taxes are 25% + customs handling so it was still more than $150 a piece. So much for protectionism...
