Collage.com Featured in Somerst Mall’s CityLoft Pop Up Shop in Detroit
The folks over at GiftInsider.com have chosen Collage.com as one of their companies to highlight as super gift givers for the holidays. For three days — Nov. 21 – 23 (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) — we’ll be open for business in at Somerset’s CityLoft, in the heart of Detroit.
The address is 1261 Woodward Avenue. And you can shop from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. each of those days.
We’re proud to be one of the 20 companies that participating. Half of them are based in Detroit — including us.
Collage.com was the first gift company that the lovely people at GiftInsider mentioned during a recent segment on Fox (above). Feel free to be inspired by those canvasses and blankets, some of our best-selling collage items.
We love making collages for fun people. Even better, we love when those people use our collages in bed.
This week on the Today Show we were featured in a segment on great deals. You can watch it here – and be sure to wait for the part where Carson Daly is submerged in a blanket with one of our collages. Yes, those blanket collages are fully available for you if you want one of your family or friends … or even Carson Daly, sure, we can do that too.
Speaking of requests — you guys were so excited about Carson’s appearance that you ordered thousands of fleece blankets. So thanks!
Last week, Collage.com was featured on CBS in a … rather interesting segment. It was on The Talk, while the hosts were playing a trivia game with the cast of The Millers. Each team was playing for a segment of the audience; if they won, those audience members got a $100 gift card to Collage.com.
Well, surprise surprise, it turned out that even though the hosts of the show won (narrowly!), everyone in the audience walked away with a gift card. And it all happened while JB Smoove danced in front of them. What more could you ever want, seriously.
If you want to view the segment, it’s around 28:30 here in the Oct. 3 episode.
Rethinking the class portrait in the age of the instagram selfie
We all had those classic faded-background school portraits when we were kids. But that was before the age of the selfie. Look what kids are doing now, without flashbulbs and umbrellas. Welcome your kids back to school with a collage that shows them how much you’ve watched them grow.
Adding photos of handwritten text or signs to your collage is a great way to break up your photos and make your collage more memorable. The trick is making sure your pictures are sharp enough and you’re printing on a large, flat surface. Posters and framed prints work great for collages with small text–canvases and blankets, not so much.
We’ve gotten so many orders for collages recently that we decided to show you where they’re all going. Each dot is an order, and together there are more than 50,000 shipped across the country. That’s a lot of dots.
By the way, if you like the way that graphic looks, don’t forget that you can order your own collage in the shape of the United States, or any individual state (even the weirdly shaped ones).”
This morning at 8:40 AM, we were featured on the TODAY Show Steals and Deals segment. Here is a snapshot of the traffic spike we got as a result (from realtime Google Analytics). Our website for this deal consisted of a landing page, checkout page, and purchase confirmation page. At the initial peak, we hit about 1,250 page views per minute.
Sara and her family started a journey three years ago to visit each state’s capital in the United States. Their travels were supposed to take more than 10 years, but they have found themselves in 32 of the 50 states in the last 3 years! Sara says it has been a fun, but exhausting journey so far.
Now, Sara is using collage.com to create 11×14 posters of each state using pictures form their travels. As she receives them, she frames each one and hangs them on her wall at home:
