How to create a collage that is as unique as your family

Do you have a collection of family photos that are hidden in boxes, gathering dust, or lost in the scroll of your phone? Don’t let these precious memories go to waste. Creating a personalised family collage is a fun and creative way to showcase your family’s unique story and personality. 

Step 1: Select a Collage Layout  

Before you start it’s a good idea to decide what size collage you would like and how many photos are going to be in it. At HappyMoose we have two sizes of Collage Poster, and a number of sizes in the smaller Collage Prints.

Have a look at the different layouts until you find one that works best for you. 

Step 2: Choose a Theme  

To create a cohesive and visually pleasing collage, it’s helpful to choose a theme. This could be a specific colour scheme, a certain time period, or a particular event or vacation. Once you have a theme in mind, you can start gathering your photos and selecting the ones that fit best. 

Step 3: Gather Your Photos  

The next, and perhaps most important, step in creating a family photo collage is to gather all the photos you want to use. This might take some time, but it’s worth it to create a meaningful and personalized piece. Choose photos that tell the story of your theme, and pick a variety of candid and posed shots.  

Consider getting those old family photos digitized. There are plenty of apps available for your phone which can help you scan your old photos. This will allow you to easily incorporate them into your collage.  

Step 4: Print and Display  

Once your collage is complete, it’s time to print it out and display it for all to see. Hang it in a prominent place in your home or give it as a thoughtful and personalised gift to a family member or friend.
