    I printed a large canvas for a friend and let it dry for a week or so. When I stretched it, it was perfect, taught and flat. It hung that way for two days at my house. When I delivered the print, the canvas was perfectly flat, we hung it on the wall and there it was for three days, about two miles from my house. When I dropped by today there were ripples in the canvas. Aaaaaggh! I have read about light misting, ironing, and acrylic Gesso on the back side. Worried about inkjet prints and heat, also water (no varnish on the print.) What about a surface varnish spray? I could tell my friend was disappointed when I walked in today. 🙁
