The start of Photolini

We are Christoph and Carsten, the founder of Photolini. We share the passion for traveling and photography and while studying in Kiel, we used to talk a lot about our business ideas. 

Carsten then went to Italy, Christoph to the US. When they met again over a beer, the idea for the modular, magnetic photo collage was born. The beer mat with the first drafts still exists today!

From the idea itself to launch of sales

The evenings and weekends of the following two years were spent for trying and testing until the first elements of the Photolini magnetic photo collage finally hang on the wall. Friends and family contributed their ideas for the marketing and own production. In the fall 2009, the first Photolini manufactory were founded in a backyard in Kiel and in January 2010, photolini.de went online. The fixed idea quickly became a full-time job and the first employees were hired. The product range was expanded with photo walls for end customers and team photo walls for companies.

To establish a broad basis for the topic “Designing with many pictures“, Photolini also offers picture frame sets for designing beautiful picture walls since 2013. In the meantime, the product range also comprises wall mirrors, collage picture frames, design poster and object picture frames.
