Why don’t you look into getting a second hand Pro 100 or Pro 10, they can handle every one of your needs x 10…
For printing as much as 10.000 A3+ canvas a year, I'd say that a Pro10 is too slow.
My Pro-10s takes at least 10-15 minutes to print a single A3+ canvas/fine art sheet in high quality mode. Say you need to get 50 of those A3+ prints. That's 8-10 hours continuous printing, not counting the time to replace the carts
I don't know if the Pro100 is faster than the Pro-10 but, IMHO for this amount of printing, a Pro-1000 is more suitable. I'm sure it's way faster than the lower models and the cartridges are much bigger so no need to keep changing them every other day. Vacuum aided paper transport helps also a lot with canvas media, which can be quite thick and possibly not perfectly flat.
