Beautifully printed and made with the highest quality materials, collages created with Printique are the perfect way to display your favorite photos.
If you’re a fan of interior design, hanging individual photos on your wall can feel like a boring approach — at least, that’s how it felt for me and my family. With all those separate frames holding each important photo, it was tough to come up with a design that showed how close my family is, and how the love we share has grown and developed over time.
Luckily, it’s not the only way to display family photos: I found that online collages are a fun, fresh alternative! This format allows you to combine memories — maybe of a trip, a special occasion, or just a normal family gathering — while maintaining all the polish of more conventional wall decor.
And who did I turn to when it was time to make and print my collage? Printique, where quality is paramount — every product is printed on gallery-quality paper and individually inspected to ensure perfection.
Plus, the platform allows you to control every aspect of your order from beginning to end, including templates, cover material, and a huge range of printing options.
Creating a collage through this site is fast, easy, and affordable — just by picking your design, uploading, dragging, and dropping, you can bring your creative vision to life.

Deciding on the Materials

The first step in making your masterpiece is picking what to print on. Here are just some of the exciting options to choose from:

  • Paper: This versatile option is far more sophisticated than your average printing paper — you can choose between four different finishes and three styles of mounting.
  • Metal: These frameless and lightweight collages are interesting to look at and extremely durable. And since they’re waterproof, they’re perfect for households with kids or pets!
  • Canvas: Collages printed on this heavyweight, UV-proof material have a unique, rustic edge. The canvas has an organic feel and comes with a sturdy wooden frame that completes the look.
  • Acrylic: This material offers crisp details and a high-gloss finish. Acrylic collages look modern and sleek with an unframed finish.

Once you’ve decided on the printing medium, you can choose your finish, mounting method, and print size.

How to Choose a Template

Looking through the site, I was definitely wowwed by the huge variety of templates, which were separated into user-friendly categories for easy browsing and included a range of shapes and sizes.
In order to choose the perfect template for your project, it’s best to pick out your favorite photos beforehand. I chose a unifying theme, like a person, family, or event for my collage — but if you’d rather feature a random assortment of pictures, that’s okay, too!
Once you have your favorite photos, it’s time to decide on the final product’s focal point — maybe it’s your most prized shot, or maybe your silliest. Regardless of what you pick, choosing a clear point of focus will help determine which template suits your needs.

Finishing Touches

After you’ve completed these steps, upload your photos and choose a great backdrop to complement them — those options include bright colors and fun patterns.
Lastly, review your creation to make sure everything is perfect, and order away! And if you can’t wait for your product to arrive, AdoramaPix’s in-house printing is extremely quick and has rush options. Before long, you’ll have transformed your wall into a uniquely beautiful display!
