How to Make a Pillow With Pictures
Step 1: Decide which size pillow and material you would like to create
The first step in creating your photo pillow is to decide on the size that you want. Once you have this decision made, you can then choose your material. Be sure to consider where you will be using the pillow and if you want it to be primarily functional or decorative when making your selections. For example, the microsuede material is an ideal choice if you plan on resting with your pillow regularly.
Step 2: Choose your insert, or use your own
When designing your perfect pillow, you can also choose whether you want Collage.com to include an insert or if you prefer to use your own. For just a nominal cost, you can choose one of Collage.com’s extra cozy inserts to fill out your pillow cover. The pillow cover is machine-washable, making for easy cleaning. Simply remove the insert and machine wash in cold water using a mild detergent.
Step 3: Select your favorite photos
Now that the basic decisions of your pillow design are complete, you can begin the creative process in earnest. The first step of this creativity is choosing your personal photos to display. Because you will be looking at these pictures a lot, be sure to choose shots that make you happy or that carry a significance to who you are giving the pillow gift to.
Step 4: Upload them to Collage.com
Once you have selected the photos that you want to use, you can simply upload them to the Collage.com design template. You can pull your photos directly from your computer or you can upload them from your preferred social media site. Collage.com supports a myriad of social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, and Google Photos.
Step 5 (Optional): Arrange them in you favorite order, or use our automatic placement
The fun really begins when you reach this step of the creation process. You can play around with a variety of collage templates to arrange your photos on your pillow. If you do not want to spend time on this step, you can also elect to use Collage.com’s automatic photo placement service.
Step 6 (Optional): Use our photo pillow templates, or completely customize it yourself
This step is purely optional. You can submit your pillow design for printing after step 5 or you can continue to personalize the product with a variety of custom templates that will inspire your creativity. You can take this part of the design process one step further by choosing to add a unique background or a text message inscribed on the pillow. It all depends on how much personal detail you wish to include on your pillow design.
Step 7: Enjoy the photo pillow you made yourself!
Now it is up to you to simply wait for your pillow to arrive to you and then enjoy it. Standard shipping on most products from Collage.com is 10 days. However, you can also upgrade to a faster option if you are in a time crunch or if you just can’t wait to use your pillow.
