Our Tips & Tricks for an Eye-Catching Collage!

Create a collage as gift for your boyfriend or girlfriend
  • Black and white collages look especially high-quality and classy 

  • Create an eye-catching centerpiece by including one photo in color, while the rest remain black and white 

  • For collages with only colored images, make sure that the colors compliment each other and do not clash 

  • Collages that include pictures from one event tell a story (ex: a rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception)

  • One creative design idea for family collages is to include a group photo in the center with individual members surrounding it
  • For wedding collages, you can include the date of the ceremony alongside a photo of the bride and groom. To enhance the collection, consider choosing pictures of the wedding venue and guests. 
  • While a picture is worth a thousand words, a custom message can take your collage to the next level. When designing your puzzle, consider including a sentimental note, special date, or the names of loved ones.

Sentimental Messages for Your Loved Ones


Where there is love, there is life.


A smile is the light in the window of your soul.


Moments come and go but memories last forever.


There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.


I love you to the moon and back!


Home is not a place, it's a feeling!


It's not about fitting more years into your life, it's about fitting more life into your years.


True friends are never apart, maybe in distance but never in heart.


In a sea of people, my eyes will always search for you.
