Thursday, November 27, 2014 Review and Giveaway

If you walk into my home you'll see a variety of pictures both framed and on the walls.  The photos range from wedding pictures of my husband and I, to our dog, and of course pictures that I've taken too.  I think it's important to display meaningful pictures that make you smile each time you see them.   When my daughter is born, we'll surely have lots of framed pictures of her too.  What kind of photos are in your home? offers custom photo creations that make ideal Christmas presents for anybody this holiday season.  Go ahead and have fun creating the custom piece of your dreams.  Why not wow Grandma this year with a high-quality fleece photo blanket featuring her grandkids? If you have a family member who recently got married, they'd love a photo album featuring their wedding photos.  The website also has custom posters, canvases, phone cases, photo cards, Christmas ornaments, photo calendars and so much more.  Whatever your custom needs are, Collage has you covered.

If you're looking for a unique Christmas gift this year, I have the perfect suggestion for you. Collage's aluminum prints would look wonderful on the walls of anyone's home.  An aluminum print offers a modern alternative to the classic canvas.  These lightweight prints aluminum panels show off your photos in high-definition.  Dyes are directly infused into the metal which gives your images brightness and definition like you've never seen before. Memories don't get more vivid than this!

I had the opportunity to try out an aluminum print for myself.  I knew I wanted to surprise my husband with the print, so I chose a wedding photo of us in an 11x14 size.  You can choose from a variety of sizes depending on what your needs are.  The creation and ordering process on the website was very easy and in moments my order was submitted.  Shipping was very fast and my print arrived yesterday.

What I instantly noticed about the print was that my wedding photo did not take up the whole print.  There's a white space on the top and bottom that I wasn't expecting.  I would prefer that the picture take up the whole print, I think it would look better that way.  It would be nice if in the future Collage could offer that.
It's hard to capture the aluminum perfectly because it is slightly glossy.  This picture was taken 15 months ago now!

I was impressed with the fact that the picture was printed on actual aluminum! Technology is so interesting and the fact that this method of printing exists is very cool.  The colors are rich and sharp and I am satisfied with how the print came out.  If you were wondering, the picture is actually cool to the touch due to the aluminum.  My husband loved being surprised with the print and he was very excited about it.  He couldn't believe it was printed on aluminum!

As you can see, the hardware needed to hang the picture is already included on the back.  Simply put a nail in your wall and hang your print wherever your heart desires.  My husband and I are currently deciding the best place for the print to hang.  We have a lot of wall space that is blank, so it shouldn't be hard to find a good space for it.

The ultra thin design of the print is sleek and modern.  Canvases can be bulky and take up a lot of wall space, but the aluminum saves space!

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to for providing me with a complimentary aluminum print in exchange for this review.  All thoughts are my own.
