About

Showcasing invitations as personalized framed works of art, perfect for gift giving.

I’m Carol Colman, and there’s nothing I love more than seeing people beam with joy when they give - and receive - the P.E.R.F.E.C.T. gift. That’s what you get every time from Carol Colman Collages, where you can be 110% certain your gift will be a treasured keepsake that is:
Personal: custom-designed for the recipient
Emotional: meaningful to the giver and the receiver
Rare: one-of-a-kind
Fitting: fits the occasion and the recipient
Extraordinary: stands out from the crowd for its originality and thoughtfulness
Cherished: will be deeply treasured
Thoughtful: shows how much you care

How did I get started with this business? I volunteered to sell invitations as a fundraiser for a local nonprofit organization. I learned how much emotion is invested in invitations, and how to read their clues to the spirit of the celebration and the personalities of the people being celebrated.

Then came the fateful day when one of my invitation clients showed me a framed invitation keepsake collage that her older daughter had received as a gift. She asked if I could make something similar for her younger daughter. I looked at the collage and my jaw dropped – I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was – and what a great way to bring together my unique background in designing invitations with my passion for preserving memories. And so my business was born. Since 2006 my collages have delighted clients in 30 states and three countries.

“Carol Colman Collages is my go-to gift when I want to give something unique and meaningful that I know will be treasured for a lifetime!
Jamie Tassel

I have designed collages for occasions from the arrival of a new baby to celebration of a 70th wedding anniversary. I would love to create something special just for you and solve your biggest gift-giving challenges.
