Collage Photo Blanket Review and #Giveaway!!


I think most people would agree, photo gifts are the best kind of gifts. What's even better than a photo gift? How about a gift with a collage of photos on it?! I recently found Collage.com, a company that allows you to make photo collages online, and turn them into gifts or products for yourself. I was able to design a fleece photo blanket, and it is...well, I'm getting ahead of myself-I'll start with the design process first!

Obviously the first step in designing your blanket is uploading some pictures. This can be just a couple pictures, or-if you're wanting to go all out with your collage-20 or more photos! I scoured my computer for some of our family's favorite pictures from the past year, and eventually weeded it down to about 35 photos. You can make the designing process as easy and automatic as you like, or you can drag and drop photos to the area you want them. I did a combination of both; let the site automatically add my photos, then arranged them and sized them to my liking. (Yes, you can make each picture the size you want!). You can also customize the blanket even more by adding text, choosing a background (choose from a variety of solid colors, textures, holiday-theme and more), a filter, border, and even a shape to be formed with your pictures;. These are as simple as a heart, butterfly or teddy bear, and as unique as a sports figure, state, animal, or even a word!



After placing my order it wasn't long before I received a shipment notice, and soon after that, the blanket arrived. Let me just say, I was expecting a blanket to maybe take away from the clear, crisp quality of the pictures. Honestly, you'd think that putting 35 photos on a fleece blanket would mean a lack of brightness, maybe even a little blurriness, right? Not so! The pictures look AMAZING! I can't get over how detailed, bright and clear each picture is! The blanket itself is very comfy, soft, and perfect for cuddling up with a good book or a family movie in the evening. I love how many memories this blanket holds; pictures from our trip to Pigeon Forge last year, our  2nd TaeKwonDo tournament, trips to the Creation Museum and MOSI, family photo shoots, and the 5K we ran in last year. Every so often I just stop and look at each picture, and it brings back some wonderful memories from 2014! (Now there's a great idea-make a photo collage blanket at the end of each year with our family's favorite memories!).




My pictures just don't do justice to clear the photos actually came out!
Collage.com offers more than photo blankets too; you can order canvas prints, calendars, pillows, towels, shower curtains, tote bags, device cases, and much more! I will definitely be keeping Collage.com in mind for my holiday shopping this year!

There are so many neat things. One that really stands out are the aluminum prints. I have never seen anything like this. We lost a son to cancer a few years ago and I'd love to have a blanket made like the one you showed with some of his pictures.

I like the photo beach towels. If my kids could design their own towels maybe they would not manage to leave them behind when we go to the lake.
