Re: Non-Trek - A Present for Mom
I think splitting the difference is the right call there (though it does frame the subject very well as it is), but you might consider getting a small one printed as a test if there is time and it isn't going to set you back too much. It is always a hard call to make going from digital to printed when you only have one shot at it.
I really don't think you'll miss the canvas texture at all once it is printed.
