As Creative Director, I hear a lot about what other vault companies offer. And it's great. Our dealers let me know how we stack up, good and bad. What's great about that is it helps me and my team develop tools and products that are even better.
Our appliqués are a great example. Our image library (always available at www.trigard.com/Applique.html) has a good assortment of stock images. But between you and me, they're just that: good. Not great.
But that's by design! Our design team chose images that are lovely on their own, but are at their best when they serve as backdrops for a family's cherished photographs. A picture of vibrant, yellow tulips or a mallard in flight (two of our images) transform into something special when we add a name and dates for a family. But nothing matches the power of seeing a vault decorated with family photos on a custom appliqué.
But what if you don't think you're a creative person? What if you can't imagine what a custom appliqué would look like? Just relax! That's my team's job!
All you need to do is gather a few photos from the family, scan them at a high resolution, and send them to us with the name and dates. Our creative team will make something amazing for you. And you'll get to share it with the family before we print it.
