About Collage.com - The Website and the Photo Collages
The Website and the Collages
Collage.com is a website that lets you upload pictures, make them into a custom collage, and order high-quality printed products featuring your collage. You can also share Collage.com collages online for free. Each collage can include hundreds of pictures arranged either in one of our 50+ shapes, or however you like.
The key technology that differentiates Collage.com from other software is its patent-pending auto-placement engine. Collage.com will automatically arrange photos to cover any shape without gaps or overlapping – something you can't get anywhere else! But that isn't all. Collage.com also lets you place photos anywhere you want. It will automatically adjust surrounding photos to eliminate gaps and overlapping, leaving a picture-perfect custom collage!
Collage.com originated from software that one of the founders, Kevin Borders, created to help make an anniversary gift for his girlfriend. He wanted to build a collage with 1000 of their personal photos, and there wasn't anything out there that could do it. Kevin enlisted the help of Kyle Mulka, a fellow Michigan graduate, to help build the very first custom collage. After completing the collage, shown on the right, Kevin gave it to his girlfriend, who loved it (and they eventually got married!) Kevin then decided to get together with friend and then co-worker at Microsoft, Joe Golden, to transform the original software into a website where anyone could make a custom collage and share their memories.
In 2007, Kevin Borders and Joe Golden founded Scrapwalls, LLC. ScrapWalls is a Michigan-based company, with offices in Ann Arbor, MI. Since its inception, others have joined the ScrapWalls team, and everyone has contributed immensely to make the site and the company what it is today.
