We have been in our current home for seven years now, and most of our walls are filled with artwork, family photos and assorted other decorative items. But we have one space that has been awaiting something large and suitably wonderful. As we walk down the staircase from the second floor, we face a large blank wall. And it has been bugging me...until now. Posterjack has helped me create the perfect photo art to fill that pesky wall.

I wanted the wall to hold a family photo, but not just any family photo. It had to be something that brightened our days, brought back fond memories and just generally made us all feel good. I immediately thought of one of my favourite family photos - I took it on a vacation to Nova Scotia several years ago. As the kiddos walked up the hill at the Fortress of Louisbourg, my little guy reached out gently and took his sister's hand to help her with the climb. This tired mother's heart was happy. And I caught it on film! Posterjack, Canada's photo art experts, turned one of my favourite pictures into a 48-inch by 36-inch posterboard. At that size, you sure can't miss this image. Even when we're sleepy-eyed while coming down those stairs in the morning, it will serve as a great reminder of this special moment of sibling harmony (and hopefully encourage many more harmonious moments!)

Whether you need a gift for a husband, wife, grandparent or friend, you can't go wrong when sharing your special pictures. In this age of digital photos, I think most of us are guilty of confining the majority of our pictures to our hard drives. I know I am. Why not share your biggest moments or simple everyday memories with a gift of photo art?

And you don't even have to go to the mall! Photo art from Posterjack can be delivered right to your doorstep. Posterjack has a range of options to suit your wishes (and your price level). You can choose from:
  • framed photos
  • poster prints
  • canvas prints
  • wood prints
  • metal prints
  • acrylic prints

Our special photo art piece is a photoboard, which mean it's made of 1/4-inch thick, dense white material, and requires no frame for a clean and modern look. The crisp, white material ensures the colours are even more vivid than traditional prints on paper. Posterjack offers two hanging systems to go with it - a float mount system for a clean, gallery look or a standoff kit with pre-drilled holes in each corner and industrial-look hangers that go through the holes. (We chose the latter.)

Order by December 14 to receive your special photo art in time for Christmas. Do you know somebody who would love a photo gift?
