I can't remember the product code but I've used Metamarks art canvas before and got some great prints out of it.

Often this will depend on the customer as you can get a few different finishes of canvas.
Most people think that they want a traditional canvas print and are then disappointed by the look and feel-as traditional art print canvas is dull and heavy.
For a higher white level and smoother printing people often prefer a satin with polyester coating/base...something a bit more plastic/fake feeling.
I'd say get some samples and see what suits you best!
