I'm in AWE!!! Thank you so very much!!!! Chandler is a magician!!! I'm just blown away by how great this looks! I am profoundly grateful and so impressed.
I usually get useless paper pamphlets that go directly into the garbage. However, I spent about 15 minutes reading through the SEG Fabric Frames & Displays catalog, even on a busy day like today. I must say this guide is one of the best brand marketing materials I have come across my entire career, truly impressive. Informative, engaging, and most importantly so fun to read.

A creative thinker who likes to explore alternative solutions to problems and has an open mind about what will work best. She is someone who is consistently growing herself and takes the time to continue learning even when it is not a direct requirement of the job.
Morgan White Marriott
A rare mix of obsessive precision and incredible creativity. She is able to interpret loose direction and turn the final product into a work of art, ahead of the deadline and under budget.
