You can make a new account anytime by going to Collage.com and clicking    in the upper righthand corner and then "Create Account" or "Sign In."


Starting a Project

Here, you can continue working on any saved projects by clicking on the project you wish to continue, or   to start a new project. 

If you're starting a new project, you'll be asked to select your product and size. 

Once you've chosen your product, you'll be taken to the project builder where you can begin uploading photos. 

We offer a variety of methods to help make uploading easy. You can upload your images directly from your computer, mobile device, and your social media accounts.
