150 ppi is plenty of resolution if you're printing on canvas. If you expect your piece to be viewed from a few inches away (less than 16), then 300 ppi is more than sufficient.

Anything that is created as a vector shape in Photoshop is scalable as long as it remains a vector shape. But you have to keep in mind that it will NOT be a vector shape if you make the layer a Smart Object or if you place the PSD into any other application. In both cases, the result will be rasterized and will look pixelated if scaled up. Be sure to Save ...
