Displaying Photos Like a Pro
When we set about creating the Gallery Box, we wanted a piece of art that every designer would choose to complete their perfect room. Something fresh, inspirational, and adaptable. We also knew that any designer worth their salt thrives on value and quality. With all this in mind, we went all out to set the bar for the best photo art value in Canada. Mission accomplished!
Simple Yet Stunning
What is it about a Gallery Box that immediately catches your eye? Is it the ultra-sharp definition of your photo? Or maybe it's the gorgeous matte finish that offers an air of modern simplicity. It could also very well be the straight lines and refined look. You might never figure out exactly why you love looking at your Gallery Box, but that's a fun problem to have.
Made for Creativity
Every Posterjack Gallery Box is a work of art with your name on it. Mix and match colours and sizes to create a fantastic gallery wall. Or go super-huge with an impressive Gallery Box above the mantle. Let your creativity run wild and we're sure you'll find Gallery Boxes are the perfect way to create the look you want.
Not Just a Pretty Face
Not only are Gallery Boxes stunning to look at, they are also made for longevity. When you order a Gallery Box, your photo will be printed directly onto a 1/4 inch hard, durable board. Even better, they are scratch-resistant and can even be wiped clean with a wet cloth. Does it get any better than that?
The New Black
From timeless Framed Photos to cutting-edge Metal Prints, Posterjack offers the largest variety of photo art products in Canada. Because of this, people often ask us which product they should choose to display their photos. If you’re looking for something that is versatile and will look good no matter how or where you display it, the Gallery Box is definitely the photo art product we recommend. Adaptable, designer-approved, and quickly growing in popularity, the Gallery Box is the new black of interior design.
Gallery Boxes come in four fabulous colours to match your photos and décor: black for that classic look, white for a clean and modern look, espresso for a dignified presence, and silver for a bold statement.
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 Gallery Box 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 Gallery Box?
Posterjack Gallery Boxes take approximately 7-10 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.
If you need assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us – we’re happy to help!
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 a Gallery Box?
A Gallery Box is a complete piece of art that is ready to hang on your walls. It is an invention of Posterjack and one of our customer's favourite products. We print your photo/image onto a durable board, then frame it in a solid wood frame, with a small reveal between the print and the frame.
Is a Gallery Box similar to a Canvas Print with Floater Frame?
The two products are similar, but also very different. The Gallery Box has a more modern look, owing to the flat print surface and matte sheen. The framing of a Gallery Box also results in a more modern look due to a thinner frame face and less depth on the reveal.
A Gallery Box is also very durable thanks to the rigid material. The final piece of art is scratch resistant and can be wiped with a damp cloth for cleaning. Choose a Gallery Box instead of a Canvas Print with Floater Frame to achieve a modern looking and durable piece of art at a very competitive price point!
Will my photo be cropped?
After your photo is printed onto a large 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.
