Create Modern Art with Acrylic Prints
Seeing your photo on a Posterjack Acrylic Print is an eye-popping experience. The combination of super-vivid printing along with the enhanced depth of your photo creates a magical effect. Of all the Photo Art mediums, this is the one that will make your photo really pop.
It's In The Details
Posterjack Acrylic Prints are best in class and it's the details that put us ahead. We've refined our Acrylic Prints to match the quality of the very best photo ateliers in Europe, making sure that every detail is absolute perfection. Each Acrylic Print is made with thick 1/4" - 99.9% optically pure acrylic. We protect the back of the print with a white stability board for extra longevity and protection against moisture and handling. And to top it off, we polish the edges to a crystal clear sheen, so that light refracts from the edges, creating a seamless image reflection from face to edge. You've got to see it!
Plentiful Hanging Options
We offer a choice of two great hanging options. Our standoffs offer an industrial look, perfect for creating that edgy decor style. Our sleek float mount system is hidden when the Acrylic Print is on the wall, for a super clean look and feel. We also offer a smart looking easel on smaller print sizes, for placing your Acrylic Print on a desk or table.

Where does posterjack Ship To?
Posterjack.ca ships to anywhere in Canada. We do not ship to any other countries at this point in time. All shipping takes place through Fedex.
How much does shipping cost?
Our standard shipping rate is $8.50. This is a flat rate and applies to your entire order, regardless of the quantity or size. A rural delivery surcharge of $20 is applied to remote addresses, due to the higher costs of delivering to rural areas. This charge only applies if the second digit in your postal code is deemed rural or if you live in North West Territories, Yukon, or Nunavut.
Is my Acrylic Print going to arrive in good condition?
All orders are packaged with our time-tested, super-tough packaging materials. Less than 1% of our packages are damaged. However, all of our shipments are fully insured, so should any damage occur during shipment, you are completely covered.
How long does it take you to produce my Acrylic Print?
Acrylic Prints take 8-12 business days to produce. This is an AVERAGE time. If we have a big rush of orders, it can take longer than the time listed. Please bear in mind that each piece of art is a custom product that needs to be produced.
How long will it take until my package arrives?
Once we ship your item, we'll send you a tracking number immediately. If you'd like more information, please see our Production & Shipping Page
Our Free Quality Check!
The very first thing we do is take a look at your image resolution, compare this with the chosen print size, and give you a free quality score for printing (shown on the first screen after uploading). No more second guessing if your image is suitable to print large! If your score isn't as high as you would like, you can try switching to a smaller print size. If your score is unsuitable, that means we won't let you proceed as print results will not be acceptable. In this case, please choose a smaller print size, a higher resolution image, or contact customer support for further 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.
If you aren't a big colour geek, don't worry, your camera produces images in a colour space we can handle (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.
How large of a file can I upload?
You can upload files up to 50 MB in size. Should your images be larger than 50 MB, the best place to start would be checking they are saved in JPEG format (TIFF's generally produce larger file sizes, at no real advantage for print quality). If you need further assistance with file sizing, please contact us for details.
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!
What is an Acrylic Print?
An Acrylic Print is a modern and fresh way to display your photos. The look is very clean and simple which puts the focus on the photo and the quality of the product. We reverse the photo and print onto the back of a piece of acrylic. Then we seal in the print and add opacity by printing a flood coat of white behind it.
How does an Acrylic Print compare to an Acrylic Face Mount?
An Acrylic Face Mount is an older method of making acrylic art which requires printing on paper, then adhering the face of this print onto the back of an acrylic. Here's a chart to help you understand the differences:
|Posterjack Acrylic Print||Facemount Acrylic|
|Your photo is mirrored then printed directly onto the acrylic. There is no glue or adhesive used and the result is 100% optically pure.||Your photo is printed on paper, then the face of the print is adhered to the back of the acrylic. Depending on the quality of adhesive, the product may last a number of years, but eventual peeling and delamination will occur.|
|We seal the back of the print with white ink infused with titanium for an extremely durable finish.||The back of the print is made of photo paper. This can be easily scratched, gouged, etc.|
|Our Acrylic Prints are suitable for use outdoors and in humid, damp, wet conditions.||Face Mounted Acrylic will be destroyed if exposed to humidity as the paper will absorb the moisture and start to bubble.|
Do your acrylic prints go right to the edge of the acrylic?
Yes, our acrylic prints go right to the edge of the sheet. We have a laser polished edge, so you can see the colours shining through the edge, which is an amazing feature of our Acrylic Prints. Take a look at our product shots in the viewer above to get a close look at the polished edge and borderless printing!
