What is WeMontage?
WeMontage is a website that allows you to use your photos to make stunning, custom wallpaper photo collages. Yes, real wallpaper! And it peels on and off the wall very effortlessly!
But WeMontage is not about a website, pictures, or even wallpaper. WeMontage is about the visceral, emotional feeling you have when you see your friends and loved ones on your wall in really large images with stunning picture quality.
It's a perfect holiday gift!
What does a WeMontage look like?
This is an example of a basic WeMontage created using the WeMontage web application.
What inspired WeMontage?
My wife was watching an episode of Home By Novogratz, on HGTV, in which they were putting wallpaper photo collages in the basement of a family's home. I was mesmerized by the beauty and uniqueness of the concept. So, I looked around and discovered no one was truly making it easy to recreate what I saw on HGTV. And voila...WeMontage was born!
What will the money be used for?
IndieGoGo funds will allow me to complete and de-bug the almost-finished beta version of the website (see video demo of the site by clicking on the Gallery tab at the top of the page) and launch WeMontage to professional photographers and interior designers!
What does the website look like?
Here are a few screen shots from the website. We are going for simple, clean, and elegant.
Visit the Gallery tab, above the intro video at the top of the page, for a video tour of the website.
What's in it for you?
You mean other than helping launch an über cool company? :-))
For contributing to WeMontage, you will receive either a 6ft. by 4ft., 8ft. by 6ft., 10ft. by 8ft., or 12ft. by 10ft. custom WeMontage with pictures of your friends and family (all at a substantial discount); you will gain exclusive access to WeMontage to create this yourself, or we can help create it for you, if you prefer.
You will love it when you have a WeMontage hanging in your home. This access is exclusive because WeMontage will be for professional photographers and interior designers. Otherwise, you would have to go to your photographer or interior designer and have them create a WeMontage for you.
Oh, and did I mention free shipping in the contiguous United States?
A perfect holiday gift!
What will you need to use WeMontage?
You will need hi-resolution images. Here are some camera and images size guidelines:
Use a 4-6 megapixel camera if you want each image on the WeMontage to be 1ft. x1.5ft.
Use a 10 megapixel camera if you want each image on the WeMontage to be 2ft. x 3ft.
If you don't know how many mega pixels your camera has click here for smartphones (use filter to find your phone and look in far right column) & here for regular digital cameras (use filter to find your camera and look at 2nd column from right).
You will also need a computer to access the website and upload your photos, and, as with any wallpaper, a smooth, flat wall on which to hang your stunning WeMontage. You can create your own WeMontage, or we will provide some assistance.
Please help spread the word about WeMontage by liking us on Facebook, giving us a shout out on twitter, or emailing your friends! You can do so by using the share buttons under the video at the top of this page.
Thank you kindly for your support.
