Get the Wow-Factor with Acrylic Prints
Seeing your photo on an Acrylic Print is an eye-popping experience. The combination of super-vivid printing, professional-quality materials, and the depth and details of your photo creates a truly magical effect. In fact, of all our Photo Art products, a Posterjack Acrylic Print is the one that will make your photo really stand out.
It's all in the Details
Posterjack Acrylic Prints are best-in-class and it’s the details that really make us shine. We’ve refined our Acrylic Prints to match the quality of the very best photo ateliers in Europe, making sure that each and every detail is absolute perfection. Every Acrylic Print is made with thick, ¼-inch, 99.9% optically-pure acrylic. We protect the backside of the print with a white stability board for extra longevity and protection against moisture and handling. We even go the extra mile by polishing the edges to a crystal-clear sheen so that light refracts from the edges, resulting in a seamless image reflection from face to edge. Words don’t do it justice – you’ve got to see it for yourself!
Hanging Options to Suit Your Décor
When you have your photo made into an Acrylic Print, you are provided with a choice of three great hanging options. Our Standoff Kit will lend an industrial look to your print that’s perfect for those who like to create that edgy décor style. For a super-clean look, our sleek Float Mount System is completely hidden when your Acrylic Print is on the wall. Or, if you'd like to add some substance to your art, a Modern Float Frame may just be what you're looking for. For smaller print sizes, we also offer a smart-looking easel that’s great for placing your photo art on a desk or table (if desk décor is what you're after, you might want to consider printing your photo on an Acrylic Block).
Photo Presentation Perfected
If you want to display your photos just like the world’s leading photo art galleries, a Posterjack Acrylic Print is the perfect choice. We’ve won over many of Canada’s leading gallery owners, art aficionados, and professional photographers. We are super-excited about how much love this product is receiving and can’t wait to create one just for you!
Displaying Your Acrylic Print

For smaller prints, we also offer an Aluminium Easel to display your Acrylic Print with style on a flat surface.

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 & White, Sepia Tone, Solarize, Pop Art, Charcoal Sketch, and Linocut. 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 Print 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 Print?
Posterjack Acrylic Prints take approximately 8-12 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!
What is an Acrylic Print?
A Posterjack 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 quality of the product. We reverse the photo and print directly onto the back of a piece of ¼-inch, 99.9% optically-pure acrylic. Next, we seal in the print and add opacity by printing a flood coat of white behind it. View our PDF Info Sheet for a downloadable and printable overview of our Photo Acrylic Prints.
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 the photo onto paper, and then adhering the face of the print onto the back of an acrylic. Here’s a chart to help you better understand the differences:
|Posterjack Acrylic Print||Face Mount Acrylic|
|Your photo is mirrored then printed directly onto the acrylic. No glue or adhesive is used and the result is 100% optically pure.||Your photo is printed on paper and 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, resulting in a product that is easily damaged by scratches, gouges, water, etc.|
|Our Acrylic Prints are suitable for use in humid and damp conditions. Yes, they can be hung in a bathroom!||Face Mounted Acrylic will be destroyed if exposed to humidity as the paper will absorb the moisture and start to bubble.|
Will my photo go right to the edge of the acrylic?
Yes. When we print your photo on the acrylic, the image goes to the very edge of the sheet. Posterjack Acrylic Prints have a crystal polished edge, so you can see the colours shining through the edge of the print, which is an amazing feature. Take a look at our product shots in the viewer above to get a close look at the polished edge and borderless printing!
Will my photo be cropped?
After your photo is printed onto a large Acrylic sheet, our specialized machinery will cut one eighth (1/8) of an inch from the perimeter of the photo. For this reason, we do not recommend placing any logos, watermarks, or other text at the very edge of your image.
