Looking for a personalized photo gift for someone special but want to keep it under $50? We have several great options, no matter who you’re shopping for!
Here’s a look at a few ideas, but feel free to check out our entire line of photo art products to see if there’s something else that catches your attention!
1. Canvas Prints
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.
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 Minis
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 Prints
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.
Because they don’t have a frame, a Photoboard is a great photo gift idea for the person who has a clean, modern decor style.
From black and white photos to landscapes, portraits, and everything in between, all types of images will look great printed as a Photoboard, so you really can’t go wrong gifting this photo art product!
5. Hardcover Photo Book
Looking for a photo gift that’s guaranteed to be loved and appreciated? A Posterjack Hardcover Photo Book is the perfect idea! It’s beautifully made and will look amazing displayed on a coffee table or shelf; that is, if the gift recipient can manage to take their hands and eyes off it for a little while!
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.
6. Woodstand Prints
Woodstand Prints are uniquely crafted and made from select Canadian Douglas fir and renewably sourced in British Columbia. We print your photo on a durable ¼-inch thick board and combine it with a sturdy wood stand.
High contrast images look best with this product and image imperfections are softened, making it a great option for printing Instagram photos.
Woodstand Prints will enhance the look of any desk; anyone receiving one as a gift is going to love it.
7. HD Metal Prints
Our ultra-premium HD Metal Prints are amazing and will enhance any living area or office space. They can even be displayed outdoors! Our UV-stable inks are designed to protect your art from fading for over 100 years.
Your photo is printed on a 2mm metal panel and our proprietary Float Mount Hanging System is hidden on the reverse side, which floats the artwork half an inch off the wall.
Whatever photo you think your loved one will adore, be it their favourite landscape, a fun family photo, or even a print of their favourite artwork, an HD Metal Print’s brilliant colours, high definition, and glossy surface combine to make an incredible piece of art.
HD Metal Prints are available in a large variety of sizes from 8"x8” all the way up to an impressive 32”x48”.
8. Brushed Silver Metal Prints
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. Matte White Metal Prints
If you're looking for a metal print without the high gloss, our Matte White Metal Prints are perfect. With their satin-matte finish, they'll look beautiful in any situation, even in spaces that have a lot of bright lighting.
Printed using advanced SwissQ print equipment for superior image quality and GREENGUARD Gold Certified inks which produce stunningly vibrant colours, your photo is printed on a 3mm white-coated aluminum panel and is rated for 200-plus years of fade-resistance, so years down the road, your gift will look just as amazing as the day your loved one received it.
10. Gift Certificate
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!
