Slate Prints: Something Different for Valentine's Day! 60% off Sale at Collage.com

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



I like to showcase family pictures around the house. Collage.com is one of my most favorite places to go when I am looking to create photo keepsakes. That is true not only because they offer unique ways to display your items (like the slate photos I am going to discuss today), but also and most importantly, because their quality is second-to-none. I have never found a place that prints on metal better than they do, AND I have never come across a company who makes better canvas (and I've tried quite a few). If you are looking for a unique Valentine's Day gift that is sure to please, I definitely suggest checking out their website. 


Now on to my new slate photo collage, which I love!!! Using the medium of slate to create photos is pretty cool! The raw edges give it an undeniably unique look that is prone to stirring up conversation. For this particular piece, I wanted to create a photo tribute to my granddaughter, so I selected a few that show off how much she's grown. You can decide how many photos you would like to display (hence the business name, 'Collage.com'). Though many of their items allow a bazillion (slight exaggeration) photos, this particular item suggests six maximum. I chose two of her alone, and four that also paired her with her dad, her aunt on my side of the family, and her two uncles (collectively, my four kiddos).


It's very heavy, and the photos printed out nice and clear. During the creation process, the dye for the photos is injected into the stone, which means your pictures are not going to fade or chip easily over time. I do want to note though, that this product is made for inside use only. Your slate print will also come with a display stand. Mine is shown above at our hotel room (we recently took a mini-trip and I wanted to bring my slate print to show family who was also in town from out of state). You can see the strudy plastic feet stands on the bottom of the print.

The slate prints come in four sizes (6x6, 6x8, 8x8, and 12"x12").

There's a 60% Off Sale!

Right now if you head on over to Collage.com, you can make a slate print of your own for 60% off of the normal price by using the code Winter60 (limited time only). All products come with a 100% satisfation guarantee. What a special gift idea to make your special loved one for Valentine's Day! Learn more about this item and many other unique, traditional, and fun photo ideas by visiting Collage.com.
