Next-Level Photo Printing
If you want to print your photo on something that’s got a huge wow-factor; something that will have people talking; something that is modern, sleek, and incredibly vibrant, an Acrylic Print is the way to go. But what, exactly, are acrylic photo prints? Let’s take a closer look.
So, What Is An Acrylic Print?
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. As we mention in our post about whether metal prints fade, 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 Acrylic Prints that offer longterm durability and fade-resistance. In fact, under normal conditions with some sunlight, your Acrylic Print will not fade for over 120 years!
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. The result is a custom piece of photo art you just have to see for yourself. We’ve created a video to show you what an Acrylic Print is, and to provide you with a behind-the-scenes look at an Acrylic Print in the making. Check it out! After you’ve watched the video, be sure to scroll down to see more photos of our Acrylic Prints, including the different hanging options we offer. As always, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!

This is a Posterjack Acrylic Print. It’s a piece of custom artwork made just for you at our workshop. They’re modern, glossy, and vivid. Our Acrylic Prints are in a class of their own, here’s why.
We start with a thick, 1/4-inch optically clear sheet of acrylic. We print directly on the back of the acrylic using state-of-the-art inkjet printers and Posterjack software, for vibrant, accurate colours and sharp details. Then we mount a white protective backing sheet and polish the edges to a crystal-clear sheen. This means your acrylic refracts light from edge to edge.
Acrylic Prints are Posterjack’s most premium product and require 22 production steps. The result is a wondrous and breathtaking piece of photo art. We’d love to print your photo on acrylic and show you just how amazing an Acrylic Print can be.
Hanging Options for Acrylic Prints
Not everyone has the same decor taste and style, which is why we like to offer various display options so you can create the perfect piece of photo art for your space. With our Acrylic Prints, you have a few great choices:
The Float Mount System is ideal for those who love a sleek, clean, and unframed look. Our best-selling Acrylic Print hanging system, it’s made with Canadian-sourced aluminum. With its hidden bars and integrated hanging wire on the back of the print, it’s easy to hang and will make your Acrylic Print float half an inch from the wall.
The Modern Floater Frame is a great option for anyone who loves the look and feel of a framed photo. Available in four beautiful colours—black, espresso, white, or silver—the 1.75” deep hardwood frame comes with a hanging wire installed, so it’s ready to hang the moment you receive it.
The Standoff Kit is perfect if you want your Acrylic Print to have a bold, industrial vibe. Our most secure hanging system, the Standoff Kit system floats your print half an inch from the wall and features four brushed-aluminum standoffs, one in each corner of your photo. All required hardware and instructions on how to hang your Acrylic Print are included in your order.
For smaller Acrylic Prints, we also offer a built-in aluminum easel to display your art in style.
