When giving gifts I love to give gifts people will actually enjoy and use, isn’t that the point of Christmas and giving? Well, sometimes I think people mean well but don’t exactly hit the nail on the head with some gifts they tend to give.
I love giving photos, and photo books. Usually filled with photos of my kids to people back home who always request photos of them (who can’t follow along online!) or a few years back for my moms BFF’s birthday I sent her a photo book of photos of my mom who passed away back in 2001 and they were friends for 30+ years. Things like that tend to mean the world to most people, and I’m one of those people who cherish photos.
A few years back our old house had a flood in the basement storage room, where the workers next door turned off our water or so they thought and we didn’t realize until hours later when the basement was full of water that they didn’t turn it off and all my possessions in the storage room were ruined including my baby book and every photo album I owned with photos of my mom in it. Boy, was I beyond angry. Now, I make sure anything like that is put in an extra safe space and I try to print or have something done with photos that really mean the world to me.
Posterjack.ca are Canada’s photo art experts you can really trust! They contacted me and offered me a voucher code to make an order and write about the experience.
With loads of choices to choose from: Poster Prints, Canvas Prints, Speciality Prints, Framed Photos, Board Prints, Desk Decor, Art Shop & Gifts and More! There is something for everyone, and I loved browsing the site looking for the perfect fit for what I wanted. There really is something about browsing fine art posters that really gets your creative juices flowing – I love arranging tasteful home decor pieces around the house and, with posters, the possibilities are endless.
Above my fish tank in my living room I am planning a photo wall. We just painted, so I was ready to hang the first photo but wasn’t sure what would be the centre point. After browsing Posterjack.ca I decided on a Metallic Frame 8 x 12 inch frame with a gorgeous photo of baby Hanna inside the 8″ x 12″ Stunning Silver Wood Frame (Fits 5×8″ Print) Incl. Mat & Acrylic Glass and turned out just perfect.
Isn’t it just gorgeous. It’s the perfect start to my photo wall, and I love the photo. It’s one I took for her 2 month photos. I think she looks just like daddy in it so I was thrilled to have it printed and matted in this photo frame. The print turned out even better than I pictured it, it’s really amazing quality. I recently took some photos to a big boxed store to have printed and was left very disappointed in the image quality so I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Posterjack.ca but I can honestly say, they left me impressed.
I was able to order a 2nd item with my voucher, so I wanted to do something different. I wanted something for my desk downstairs where I sit and push out all these posts and do all my editing, etc. So I checked out the section for “Desk Decor” and found Woodstand Print – 7 x 7 inches. I loved how it looked so on the hunt I went for a good photo of my hubby and I.
I chose one from the Summer right before Hanna was born. I love that I can have the memory of my pregnancy plus a gorgeous photo of my husband and I that I can have on my desk to remind me of that special, and eventful pregnancy. It exceeded my expectations too. It turned out just gorgeous. There are many options for sizes, and to change the colours/hues of the photo so I chose black and white.
It is something I’ve never seen before so in my opinion, this is an amazing gift to give and I actually plan to head back on to posterjack.ca to do quite a bit of my Birthday and holiday shopping there and plan to buy this for someone special for their Birthday as well! I can’t wait to see her reaction! For now though, I love my print and think it looks just lovely on my desk and it’s really unique so it will get people talking when they see it!
Posterjack.ca Order and Delivery:
The process was very simple. Although I did make a huge mistake when I first thought I ordered. After using the guest option I filled out all the info and proceeded, and it took me to a home screen where there was login/guest option and I thought that was it I was done – wrong. If you do this, click guest (or login) otherwise you won’t get to the finalize page and your order will be lost. I didn’t realize this and had to re-do everything a week later. This however wasn’t Posterjack’s fault this was mine, but just putting it out there so you don’t make the same mistake.
I placed my order for both items on December 5th, 2016 and received an email right away to thank me for my order, and to recap what I had ordered. On December 15th I received an email stating my order had shipped and it was at my door on December 16th – the next day!
My items arrived in a big box, packaged beautifully and wrapped all well with bubble wrap and extra boxing. My items arrived in perfection condition and like I said – exceeded my expectations.
Photos never really mattered much to me until my mom passed away. Back then phones with cameras weren’t that great and no one really used them – digital cameras weren’t really talked about much, and now that I don’t have my mom with me anymore and my kids are my whole world I want to make sure I document everything I possibly can with them and make sure memories are preserved so a service like Posterjack is actually going to be a saviour and help me preserve the memories I really need preserved.
