Poster Prints or Photo Enlargements?
People often ask us whether we specialize in poster printing or photo enlargements. The answer is both. The word poster simply means that we print things in a large format. Our world-class photo printers mean that no matter what image we print, we always produce top quality products.
The Fine Print
It’s all about the details when it comes to photo enlargements. Why do Posterjack’s prints look so darn good? For a number of reasons, in fact. Back in 2006, we invented proprietary software that helps retain a photo’s details when enlarged, keeping it looking spectacularly vibrant and sharp when printed poster-sized. By reinvesting in research and development, we remain the leader for online photo printing services. In addition to our unique software, we also use the world’s most advanced printers – 19,896 little nozzles are used to print each and every detail within your photo.
But What About the Paper?
Our super-smooth and perfectly weighted 250gsm photo paper is imported from Germany and is made by Felix Schoeller, the global leader in photo imaging and décor papers. Even better, the paper we use comes exclusively from PEFC-certified renewable forests. This superior paper, combined with our vibrant HP inks, means your posters and photo enlargements will not fade for 200 years.
Expect the Best
As we believe in putting quality first, you can expect outstanding results when you order a poster from us. So, what are you waiting for? Let Posterjack turn your photos into art!
Customize Your Image
Sometimes a photo needs a little help to get it looking just the way you want. When you upload a photo, you have the option to crop the image so it’s perfectly composed, add a border choosing from a large variety of different colors and sizes, or even add a creative effect to your photo. Effects options include Black and White, Sepia Toning, Charcoal Sketch, Linocut, Solarize, and Pop-Art. Have fun and see what each effect looks like – if you don’t like it, simply click on Original Color and your photo goes back to how it was before you started.

Free image quality check
When you upload a photo to Posterjack, the very first thing we do is take a look at your image resolution, compare it with your chosen print size, and then provide you with a quality score which can be seen immediately after uploading your photo. This free image quality check only takes seconds but ensures you’ll be happy with your Poster Print – no more second-guessing as to whether or not your photo is suitable for printing in a large format. If your quality score isn’t as high as you would like it to be, you can try switching to a smaller print size. If your quality score is unsuitable, you will not be able to proceed through the checkout process as print results will not meet our high standards and will be considered unacceptable. In this case, please choose either a smaller print size or a photo with a higher resolution. Please feel free to contact customer support for additional help.
What type of file should I upload?
We process the four most common image types. All digital cameras and graphic design programs will produce at least one of these file types. The types we accept are JPEG, TIFF, BMP, & PNG. Our preferred file type is JPEG, which produces excellent print results and efficient file sizes! If your image is in a different format, please save it as one of the above formats before submitting to us.
If you aren't a big color geek, don't worry, your camera produces images in a color space we can handle (typically sRGB). If you prefer you can also upload images in Adobe RGB, or any other popular RGB Color Profile. Please do not upload images in the CMYK color space.
How large of a file can I upload?
You can upload files up to 50 MB in size. Should your images be larger than 50 MB, the best place to start would be checking they are saved in JPEG format (TIFF's generally produce larger file sizes, at no real advantage for print quality). If you need further assistance with file sizing, please contact us for details.
Your print sizes are listed under aspect ratio categories. What is an “aspect ratio”?
The “aspect ratio” of a photo, in its simplest terms, refers to the rectangle size of the image. Photos can be taken as long panoramic rectangles, shorter rectangles, squares, and anything in between. The “aspect ratio” measurement is a technical way of expressing the exact rectangle size for a photo or image. This is expressed as the relative length of the long edge of the image, compared to the short edge. Here is an infographic to help explain!
