Suggest printer & stock?

I need a new printer and new print stock.

I print professional-quality sports cards for a variety of clients.  Demand keeps going up, and I need a more efficient (cost-effective) method.  Currently, this is how I do it:
1) Print card fronts on 8.5x11 glossy photo paper
2) Print card backs on 8.5x11 matte photo paper
3) Align and glue the pages
4) Cut the cards from the pages (9 per page)

Surely, there is a better way to do this, right?

Is there a heavy stock (baseball card heavy) that will allow photo-quality printing on the front and back (ideally, glossy on one side and matte on the other)?

Which of your printers can be (very accurately) offest-aligned, so that the front and back printing matches up perfectly?

Tell me what to buy!

Thanks,
Ron

Great question. Covers a lot of ground. Canon Print Studio Pro is the print plug in Canon wants you to use with your Canon pro-printer. I would like to see how this is done in the software. Also, I wonder if you can get glossy and matte on the same stock. Can't wait to see responses.

Thanks!  We may be waiting a long time though, since the original post was over two years ago.  After awhile, I took the silence to mean "Canon can't do that."

Silly me, I only saw Mar 8. How did you solve your problem?
