Product Review: Photo Blanket from Collage.com


From time to time, Word Spelunking is asked to write product reviews. Sometimes these are book related products, sometimes they are not. Today, I have a non-book related product review to share...




For this review, I received a photo blanket from Collage.com, specifically a 50x60 sherpa throw. The sherpa throw photo blanket, which also comes in the 60x80 queen size, is described on Collage.com as: 

  • Soft and snuggly sherpa arctic fleece. 
  • Your design in crisp detail on the front; cream-colored sherpa fleece on the back. 
  • Add as many or as few photos as you want - every photo blanket is your own! 
  • Printed in the USA 

My entire experience with Collage.com, from using their custom design builder to their processing and shipping times, and receiving the final product was just wonderful and impressive. I started the process of ordering my sherpa throw by using the product builder, which is very easy to use and offers a huge selection of options to create the most unique and custom products. Unlike other sites, the product builder on Collage.com allows you to add as many pictures as you want, which is really cool. The product builder allows you to make a custom collage template or start with one of their many attractive designer templates. These designer templates cover a wide range of celebrations and themes, from anniversaries, family, baby, holidays, and more.  

I chose to use the custom collage template. Uploading my chosen pictures was super simple. The product builder makes arranging, resizing, and fixing your photos uncomplicated and easy to do. And after arranging my photos, I had so much fun choosing the perfect background/border for my collage. There are a ton of great backgrounds to choose from, from solid colors, patterns, different themes, and more, and they’re organized in easy to navigate categories. You can also add text to your photo blanket, customize the borders of your photos, arrange your photos into shapes, and even add photo filters. Overall, the product builder offers an excellent variety of design options and is simple to use. 

I was super impressed with the quick processing and shipping times as I received my photo blanket less than a week after ordering it, which was an awesome surprise...and the final product is superb! The blanket itself is high quality, made from soft, dreamy sherpa, with a great shareable size, perfect for cuddling. And the picture quality is fantastic! My photos are crisp and bright, with no blurriness or distortion of any kind. The colors of my chosen background (tie dye) are even brighter and fun than I imagined.   

As you can see from the photos below, I chose to create my collage from photos featuring my niece and her daddy at her first Carolina Panthers football game and I absolutely love how cute, one-of-a-kind, and perfect it turned out...and clearly Little A loves it too and is super proud of her new blankie. 




You never know what you’re going to end up with when it comes to custom product sites, but Collage.com has surpassed my expectations! From beginning to end, my experience customizing and creating my product couldn’t have been easier and the final product is wonderful. I know that Little A will enjoy and cherish her photo blanket for many years to come.
