We’ve put together a holiday gift guide based on some of our most popular photo art products, which is a clear indicator that people love these items!
They're Going to Love These Gifts!
A photo gift is one of the most thoughtful and personalized gifts you can give someone. Depending on the photo or artwork you choose, the gift can make someone laugh, smile, or even shed a tear as they recall a memory from long ago that may have been forgotten. There is certainly no shortage of photo gift ideas available, you can print photos on just about anything these days, but if you want something that is unique and made in Canada, Posterjack has several options worth considering. Here is a round-up of some of our most popular photo art products and gifts ranging in price, size, and style so you can find the best option for whoever you’re shopping for.
It’s also worth mentioning that when you order from Posterjack, you can choose to have your photo art sent to a different address. Your gift will be packaged carefully, will not include any pricing or payment details, and shipped right to the recipient’s front door. We make everything in-house from our Toronto location, so you don’t need to worry about getting stung by surprise import fees either. Giving the gift of photo art to loved ones near or far couldn’t be easier.

1. Matte White Metal Prints
Although we offer three different types of metal you can print your photos on, our classic matte white Metal Print is probably the best choice for most people, making it a great gift option. It has a satin-matte finish so there will be a nice sheen, but there won’t be any glare on the print, which means it can be displayed in almost any situation including rooms with a lot of bright lights or overhead lighting.
Our Matte White Metal Prints are printed using the giclée method. This process uses advanced SwissQprint equipment for superior image quality and GREENGUARD Gold Certified inks. Our photo printers produce a metal print that delivers longterm fade resistance. Under normal conditions with some sunlight, these metal prints will not fade for over 200 years! This is a gift that will be cherished for years and years.
2. Canvas Prints
Printing photos and artwork on canvas makes a beautiful, personalized gift that anyone is sure to love and Posterjack Canvas Prints are the best in Canada thanks to their longevity, durability, beautiful texture, the fact that they’re made right here in Toronto, and are eco-friendly. If you want to learn more about our Canvas Prints and why they’re so popular, you can check out 5 Steps to Getting The Best Canvas Prints in Canada.
Another reason Canvas Prints are a fantastic gift idea is because they have nearly 40 different size options—ranging from our petit 5”x7” Canvas Minis to an impressive 36”x48” print (or 30”x60” if you wanted a 2:1 aspect ratio)--three different edging options, and can be further enhanced with a float frame, so you can order something super special that will work perfectly with both the gift recipient’s space as well as your budget.
3. Acrylic Prints
If you’re looking for a gift that your loved one will be in awe over for years down the road, something they’re going to want to show off to anyone and everyone, an Acrylic Print is the perfect product. They’re modern, vibrant, and will make the photo you're printing really look its best.
A Posterjack Acrylic Print is a custom piece of photo art made with premium-quality materials. From our Toronto workshop, we print your photo directly onto 1/4-inch thick, optically clear acrylic glass using the giclée method. Once your photo is printed on the acrylic, our Photo Art Experts mount it to a white protective backing sheet and then finish it off by polishing the edges to a crystal-clear sheen. It’s our top product, and for good reason! Check out What Is an Acrylic Print to learn more about them.
4. Acrylic Blocks
If you want to give the gift of photo art on a smaller scale but still want it to have the wow-factor you generally get with larger prints, check out our Acrylic Blocks. Part of our Desk Decor line of photo art products, our Acrylic Blocks come in either 5”x7” or 6”x6”. Because of their smaller size, an Acrylic Block makes an amazing gift since the person receiving it can display it anywhere they like, be it at home or at the office.
A Posterjack Acrylic Block is made from a perfectly clear, one-inch thick piece of premium cast acrylic that captures and refracts light in a way you just have to see for yourself! They’re a great option for photos that have vibrant, bright colours and high contrast. For a totally unique photo gift idea for parents or grandparents, you could turn a child’s original artwork into an Acrylic Block to display proudly, like what was done in this room makeover.

5. Photo Mugs
Imagine sipping your favourite warm beverage every day from a mug that has a special photo, artwork, or message on it. If that sounds good to you, it’ll also sound wonderful to the person you’re shopping for! A Photo Mug is a great way to give the gift of photo art. They’re available in 11oz. and 15oz. sizes, are dishwasher-safe, and can be customized to include photos, text, and graphics on the front, front and back, or as a wrap-around full banner.
Gift Idea: If you’re shopping for a gift to give to a parent or grandparent from a child, have the child write a special message on paper, photograph it, and use it on one side of the mug, while including a photo of them on the other side.
Photographers and artists: Photo Mugs are a beautiful way to give the gift of your prints in a way that the gift recipient will see and enjoy your work every single day, be it from home or at work.
