Alternatives to Inkjet Printing on Canvas

I'm interested in adding some text on to my stretched Canvas Paintings but I don't want to affix a piece of printed canvas that raises above the back canvas creating an uneven surface, but the only other thing I can think of is having the printing done on paper, but will paper stand up for at least 10 years of display? I have heard unless you use these expensive Archival Inks & Paper you may get some quick deterioration of the print! Any opinions would be appreciated.

I guess your best bet would be to do an image transfer of the text.

Look it up on youtube, very easy. I'm not sure we have any tutorials on that subject here on the site.
