1. Canvas Print - $34.99
Canvas prints are classic and timeless, making them a natural fit with all decor styles, winning them a spot as one of our most popular photo gift ideas. The versatility also means that they’ll look great years down the road, even when the person wants to redecorate and change things up.
From our Desk Decor line of photo art products, our 5”x7” and 6”x6” Canvas Minis are only $34.99. Our Canvas Prints also have sub-$50 size options too. Handcrafted in Canada from our Toronto workshop, Posterjack Canvas Prints are made with premium materials that are designed to last a lifetime. Other canvas printing companies use solvent-based printers and chemical inks which produce a low-quality product that will fade in less than 10 years. They also use liquid laminates which initially look good, but crack, fade, and turn yellow over time. Posterjack, on the other hand, print photos on canvas using the Giclée method using original HP Vivera Latex inks, so photos will stay vibrant and will not fade for over 200 years.
2. Metal Mini - $34.99
Available in 5”x7” or 6”x6”, our Metal Minis are a smaller version of our HD Metal Prints. They’re printed using dye-sublimation on a glossy white Chromaluxe high-definition metal panel using original EPSON inks. They come with a built-in easel so they can be easily displayed on a shelf, desk, or mantel, making them a wonderful gift for the home or office.
Based on reviews left by customers, Posterjack Metal Minis were a popular photo gift given out last year. Here’s a look at a couple, but you can read more customer reviews here.
3. Wood Print - $38.99
If you’re looking for a unique photo gift idea under $50, Posterjack Wood Prints are worth considering! With prices starting at $38.99 for an 8”x8” print, when we print your photo on wood, you get a piece of artwork that’s loaded with character and completely unique. In fact, no two prints are alike! The wood’s natural warm tones and grain become a part of your image, creating a beautiful effect that lends a subtle vintage feel to your photo. The gorgeous nine-layered hardwood edges are left natural, providing a uniquely artisan look. Because we’re printing your photo directly onto the wood’s natural surface, the colour of the wood will show in areas of your photo that includes white or low saturation.
Our Wood Prints are made using only the finest Canadian birchwood, which is a certified renewable resource grown specifically to be harvested. This means we are never harming old growth forests. The hardwood boards are ½-inch thick and extremely durable. The solid feel is immediately noticed when you hold it in your hands, and you just know it’s a piece of art that’s made to last.
4. Gallery Box - $39.99
The Posterjack Gallery Box is extremely versatile, designer-approved, and will look great no matter it’s displayed, making it an excellent photo gift idea. Even better, they come ready to hang and the solid hardwood flush-mounted frame is available in four colours: white, espresso, silver, and black.

Your photos are printed using HP Indigo inks, which are water-based and non-toxic, and our proprietary printing software, so your images are sharp, accurate, and vibrant. You can customize your photo book to have as few as 20 page or as many as 120 pages, which are made with a sturdy 100-pound photo paper. Posterjack Hardcover Photo Books come in five different sizes and are professionally-bound and made in our Toronto workshop.

Woodstand Prints are uniquely crafted and made from select Canadian Douglas fir and renewably sourced in British Columbia.

7. Lacquer Frame - $49.99
Available in liquid black or dazzling white, our Lacquer Frames are a high-end, gorgeous photo gift idea. Italian designers have carefully created the high-gloss moulding to be at the pinnacle of modern design – simple, stylish, and stunning.

8. Classic Silver Metal Print - $32.99
Printing a photo directly onto brushed aluminum makes a pretty cool, and totally unique, gift. The raw metal is actually visible in areas of the photo that is white or has low saturation. Our Classic Silver Metal Prints are built to last too, so the person receiving the gift will love it for years down the road. They’re rated to be fade-resistant for 200+ years and are a great option if you’re looking for a photo art product that can be displayed outdoors. As we mention in this blog post that looks at whether metal prints fade, “Posterjack’s Classic White and Classic Silver Metal Prints are printed using the giclée method. This process uses AGFA UV printers and AGFA UV inks. Originally designed with the added capability to print high-quality outdoor signage, our AGFA photo printers produce a metal print that delivers longterm outdoor durability and fade resistance. Under normal conditions with some sunlight, these metal prints will not fade for over 200 years. If you displayed them outdoors and exposed to constant direct sunlight, they’ve been tested to last two years without fading, which is still a very long time compared to other types of art!”
9. Metallic Frame - $49.99
Create an upscale look with our gold and silver Metallic Frames to add elegance to any image. Nothing looks richer and more elegant than an accent of gold or silver on the wall. We’ve selected the perfectly rich gold and deep silver tones to provide a look of natural beauty and enduring substance. The imported moulding from Italy has an amazing hand-rubbed finish that creates a surface with interest and depth. Increasingly popular among interior designers, metallic frames are right on trend. If you are looking for a photo gift idea that stands out from the typical blacks and whites of other framed prints, this is a fabulous option!
10. Gift Certificate - $50
Want to let the person you’re giving the gift to choose their own photo art? A Posterjack Gift Certificate is a great idea! They’re available in $10 and up and are instantly emailed to you, so you can print it off right away, making it an amazing last-minute gift idea too!
