On the printed canvas and generally new digital art product topic:
Yea. I have tried a number of different canvases, there are so many people out there that do them now and the standard varies hugely, someone (perhaps the fine art guild?) should try and regulate the market for new art products better. It's no good to just go online and select the cheapest as generally you end up with something that is not exhibition quality and it's a return postage fee or worse- no refund at all.
I know there are standards so if you go to a framing gallery what you are actually buying is a product that has been many years in the developing, each of the materials you are purchasing within your frame have been tested so they don't react or get damaged easily so the framed art lasts for as long as possible and is framed to the highest standard. These same standards aren't there yet in the giclee trade, many galleries don't even put a decent over laminate or varnish on to protect the print, which is the same as not putting a glass over your photographic framed print- you wouldn't do it!
Fast Art, Cheap Art, Supermarket Art is not necessarily the best value for money, it's pretty throwaway stuff. There are a few companies out there that pride themselves on doing top notch work, but so many people just go for the former... (Is it ignorance or lack of cash ?) What happened to biting the bullet, paying for high standards and creating things that will last generations not minutes?

I went with http://www.opix.co.uk in the end because they are also on ebay and hence I could see all the good honest feedback they had received for their perspex art, they did a fantastic job.
My recommendation is to do your research and look for companies with a good reputation.
