Who is Savage Universal?

From our beginning in 1937 as a manufacturer of quality board and paper products, Savage has provided photographers the essential elements for success. Family-run from the start, we have a commitment to quality and innovation that defined who we were in the beginning and still defines who we are today.

Products such as photographic backgrounds continue to be a key focus of our manufacturing efforts, but there’s much more to the Savage story. We’re continuing to develop innovative products, especially in the digital arena, to meet the needs of today’s more diverse photography community—professionals and semiprofessionals alike.
