When a house fire and remodel left Collagewall founder Jeff Southard with a house full of empty walls, he wanted to add a personal, artistic touch to his home environment: "I had a hard-drive full of photos. So I thought, how about a photo wall? There was one snag though – I hate hanging pictures. And have you ever tried to hang a half-dozen pictures in a collage?”
After searching for a solution, he came up empty-handed. The options were too expensive and complex.
In 2007, Jeff fabricated the first prototype using inkjet prints and parts from the local hardware store. Friends liked the look and encouraged him to sell it as a product.
Jeff refined the product and installation process over the next two year along with a website to let anyone create a collage from digital photos with ease. Since then, thousands of Collagewall displays have been installed around the United States and Canada.
“Worth every cent!” raved an early customer. “The quality is fabulous. The attention to detail is refreshing: your order includes everything you need – including the tape to put the template on the wall. Installation is a breeze – not even so much as a grumble as we put this on the wall. We couldn't be happier with the process or the result.”
