The canvas is GREAT as every canvas I have recieved from DAC has been so far. The image is beautiful, the colors vibrant, and the size is perfect. The symbols are clearly printed and easy to see for the most part, which brings me to why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5. The choices of the symbols... I'm gratefull that they use a 9, and no 6, but you should also consider not using a Q and a G on the same canvas either, especially when the colors are so similar in the background, and close together on the canvas. Also the number symbols would be less confusing to someone like me the organizes the drills by number (not the DMC number) instead of symbol. Other than that this is a great kit. I have not finished it yet, but from what I have gotten done, this is going to be absolutely BEAUTIFULL!!!!
