Audiophiles Ltd. | As requested and with my pleasure, I am writing this brief review in accord with my past experience getting together with Savage.  

Based on my past experience and memory, the deepest expression I feel about Savage, is that Savage will always extend their full forces to overcome whatsoever market confrontation will face us. It is very touching when some one needs care and assistance in predicament. Savage will always reach out that  kind of concern, care and solution. They will stand right next or behind you when you need them and you will never feel alone fighting the plight on your own. 

The background paper quality has appealed us and the public with stabilization and improvement to meet the demands of every advanced photographers. We scarcely find any draw back from Savage papers for these past 20 years.

Recently, Savage has moving forward their new products incessantly further to Vinyl, Fabric, Translum,  Muslin background kits plus lots of other accessories which are constructively helpful in the digital photography today.

We wish that Savage will keep on the spirit of promoting their goods to its infinity of perfection and  fashionable state for many more century to come.

I must thank for the ever increasing friendship with the Savage team members especially Syl, Rich Brothers, Cindy and Stephanie.

PhotoFreak | My business relationship with Savage started back in 2007 just when Photofreak was established.

I approached Savage’s sales team and asked to order an initial quantity of paper backdrops. Syl and his team did a wonderful job getting me through the process and coordinating a complicated shipment from their Phoenix facility to our warehouse in Israel.  This was the beginning of an amazing friendship and beneficial partnership bringing wealth and prosperity to many families.

Photofreak is representing many companies from all over the globe. Our partnership with Savage is unique. You become not only a partner but also part of the family. Part of the success. Savage’s team is there with a smile in good times as well as with a supporting hand when times are difficult.  They are always there with creative ideas and guidance that helped us become the leading photography equipment distributor in Israel.

Savage for me is family. A family that is united by a wonderful man – Syl, Savage’s president.

EngTong Systems | On behalf of EngTong Systems Malaysia, we would like to write a personal testimony about Savage Universal whom we have previously dealt with under The BD Company. We have been working and distributing BD Backgrounds for over 30 years and now with Savage to enlarge the range of products since 2014. The BD Backgrounds is generally sought after by many professionals and photo studios in our local market, as its product can be considered branded and top of the line background paper. We have never had any complaints about the paper nor have we had any complaints about the service that Savage Universal has offered.  For many years we have always had great cooperation with everyone in the Savage company especially CEO Syl. Every 2 years during Photokina Syl always seems to find the time to meet personally with us over a meal and drinks, enjoying  great conversations about everything not only business. He is the type of person that cares and shows great interest in helping us maintain a profitable relationship. EngTong Systems Sdn Bhd, Malaysia, is very happy with the service and relationship we have with Savage Universal and we hope to continue this for many more years.
