Most are very good. Individual brands and colours exibit differences in fade resistance in sun, but compared to any other print process, screen gives you an ink layer much thicker with heavier pigmentation. This gives screen inks superior archival qualities compared to inkjet.
your main concern printing canvas is adhesion and filling the dips. Best to overcoat with a clear/white base first to fill the surface a bit and promote better grip.
