Customize Your Image
Sometimes a photo needs a little help to get it looking just the way you want. When you upload a photo, you have the option to crop the image so it’s perfectly composed, add a border choosing from a large variety of different colours and sizes, or even add a creative effect to your photo. Effects options include Black and White, Sepia Toning, Charcoal Sketch, Linocut, Solarize, and Pop-Art. Have fun and see what each effect looks like – if you don’t like it, simply click on Original Colour and your photo goes back to how it was before you started.

Where does Posterjack ship to?
We ship our products to anywhere in Canada. At this time, we are unable to ship outside of the country. All of our products are shipped via FedEx.
How much does shipping cost?
Our standard shipping rate is $9.99. This is a flat rate and applies to your entire order, regardless of the product, quantity, or size. Due to the higher costs of delivering to rural areas, a rural delivery surcharge of $20 is applied to remote addresses. If this surcharge is applicable to your order, you will be notified after you enter your postal code during the checkout process. We offer free shipping on all orders over $150.
Can you guarantee my Acrylic Block will arrive in good condition?
All orders are packaged with our time-tested, super-tough packaging materials. That said, accidents can happen and if your order does get damaged during shipping, you will be completely covered as all of our shipments are fully insured.
How long does it take to produce my Acrylic Block?
Posterjack Acrylic Blocks take approximately 3-7 business days to produce. Please note that this is an average time. Because each piece of art is a custom product, production times can vary slightly.
How long will it take for my order to arrive?
As soon as your order is shipped, you will receive a tracking number. Shipping times vary depending on which part of Canada you live in but the estimated time for most major Canadian cities is three days. For an additional fee, we can also ship your order via FedEx Priority Overnight. Local Toronto pick-up is also an option at no cost. For more information, please visit our Production & Shipping Page.
Free image quality check
When you upload a photo to Posterjack.ca, the very first thing we do is take a look at your image resolution, compare it with your chosen print size, and then provide you with a quality score which can be seen immediately after uploading your photo. This free image quality check only takes seconds but ensures you’ll be happy with your Canvas Print – no more second-guessing as to whether or not your photo is suitable for printing in a large format. If your quality score isn’t as high as you would like it to be, you can try switching to a smaller print size. If your quality score is unsuitable, you will not be able to proceed through the checkout process as print results will not meet our high standards and will be considered unacceptable. In this case, please choose either a smaller print size or a photo with a higher resolution. Please feel free to contact customer support for additional help.
What type of file should I upload?We process the four most common image types. All digital cameras and graphic design programs will produce at least one of these file types. The types we accept are JPEG, TIFF, BMP, & PNG. Our preferred file type is JPEG, which produces excellent print results and efficient file sizes! If your image is in a different format, please save it as one of the above formats before submitting to us.
Your digital camera produces images in a colour space we support – typically sRGB. If you prefer, you can also upload images in Adobe RGB or any other popular RGB Colour Profile. Please do not upload images in the CMYK colour space - colour shifting is likely to occur.
How large of a file can I upload?
You can upload files up to 50 MB in size. If your image is larger than 50 MB, check to ensure it has been saved as a JPEG (TIFF files are generally a lot larger than JPEGs with no real advantage for print quality).
There is also an image resolution limit of 80 megapixels (MP). Mega is a prefix for one million, meaning your image can have up to eighty million pixels. That’s a huge amount! In fact, even the highest end cameras don’t take images that large. So you can be sure this is more than enough resolution to create excellent prints at any of our sizes. To calculate the megapixels of your image, you only need to know the pixel dimensions of your image and plug them into this simple formula: (pixel width * pixel height) / 1,000,000 = MP.

Your print sizes are listed under aspect ratio categories. What is an “aspect ratio”?
The “aspect ratio” of a photo, in its simplest terms, refers to the rectangle size of the image. Photos can be taken as long panoramic rectangles, shorter rectangles, squares, and anything in between. The “aspect ratio” measurement is a technical way of expressing the exact rectangle size for a photo or image. This is expressed as the relative length of the long edge of the image, compared to the short edge. Here is an infographic to help explain!
