We would like to thank you for making the UN Exhibition: Empower Women a great success. We were overwhelmed with the responses we received to the show at last Friday’s opening and after.
As always, Duggal’s hard work and professionalism came through to brilliantly execute our designs and meet our highest expectations.

Each and everyone of those people was kind, professional, efficient and as intent as I was on producing-within very challenging time and budget constraints-visual material that was the best it could possibly be. I commend your staff-and you.

You happen to be one of the few that actually saw the strength of our ambitious organization and the people behind it and one the few who knew what was going to yet unfold and therefore I am sincerely grateful for all of your assistance, from providing me with all of the step-and-repeats, to helping us think of people to contact, to lending your name to a good cause, to just plain old being a team player… Thank you!
(that’s exactly how it was written)

As a photographer I always recommend Duggal because of the quality of work and extraordinary staff.
Letiza LaRosa, Julia Griner
We hope that the students who participated in the show will become new clients- certainly, they were impressed with how good their imagery can look when printed professionally.

I can’t thank you enough for the stunningly beautiful print you created for me. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. You are a creative visionary! I am forever grateful for your collaboration on my new services of photographs. The innovation of multiple layers of pigments and black tones is genius. Your new technique has given my artistic expressions new life.

Working with Duggal was an unparalleled experience. From the moment I arrived with the initial concept and the harrowing timeline I was confident that I was in the perfect hands.
Thanks to your generosity, diligence and top-flight problem solving. The piece resolved in a way that was better than I could have imagined.
Here’s to the production of many great projects in the future!

I want to write to tell you hoe superlative an artist Roman is who is currently printing RC black and white. As a photographer who deals primarily is black and white film, his expertise in rendering my images is equaled only by Jim Braden in B&W Fiber. Together these two artist might just keep film and B&W printing alive for a long time, and that would be a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
Thank you for providing the services of Roman who is always fast, creative, and right-on 100% of the time. Also, while I’m at it, thank you for JR and Eric at the front desk who are nothing less than brilliant, and whomever is doing B&W mini-lab because they always make the best choices.

…Neither of the exhibitions would have been possible without the vast knowledge, guidance, and encouragement I have received from so many members of your staff, and I am very grateful for all the support I have been given by them.
…Without Tony’s knowledge of printing and digital photography and his generosity in sharing that knowledge with me, I would have been lost. He has been a constant trustworthy second pair of eyes for me. I hope that you will continue to make Tony’s talents and his generous encouragement available here in Manhattan to those of us who are still a bit mystified by digital file processing, and all its technical pitfalls. Whatever success I have had with my two most recent exhibits is due, largely to Tony’s support of me. Thank you for making him available to me and others like myself.

Your programs and banner were a conversation stopper and were the icing on the cake to a very eloquent evening. Many, many thanks again for your very generous contribution, and I hope we can do business again in the future!

Simply WOW! Your amazing printing made the difference for our last even in Los Angeles during the Oscars Week. You met all our deadlines and went out of your way to make sure we got the photographs in time. I would recommend Duggal for any one looking for amazing work and quality color printing. Thank you so much for your wonderful work and your support in our charity and cultural project. Every artist loved the quality of printing and greatly appreciated your hard work. Thank you so much.
I wanted to take a moment to let you know how impressed I am with your Black & White department. I recently had a larger order and it was handled just wonderfully, especially by Louie and Roman. They know how I like my prints processed and work with me to achieve what I wanted, not just on this job but on all my jobs.
… I recommend Duggal to all my colleagues.
Saw the exhibit at Grand Central! Absolutely riveting- beautiful- if only it stayed longer- a lot of people wanted it to stay there longer- “magnifique”!
I was riding my bicycle in Battery Park one evening last week and came upon Susan Watts’ “Milestone’s of Recovery” exhibit.
After going from one poignant, wonderful photograph to the next all the way to the end, I just had to know who did it… of course, Duggal
…All in all, a great exhibit and a true affirmation of life!

…The dance photo exhibit at the Taiwan Cultural Center was a big success, and would not have been possible without your generous support. Thank you, Thank You! The quality of the images your lab produced was beyond outstanding. Viewers kept saying, “Amazing.”
…now I finally have a permanent collection that can travel to various galleries. This is one of my big dreams and you made it happen. Your dedication to excellence is known the world-over, and I’m proud to be associated with your extraordinary work.
I have gained so much knowledge from my time here and feel luck to have this to advance me in my career in the photography industry.

In any project there is always the unknown- and in this one whenever that “unknown” came up you bother were focused and we worked through all the challenges. The Herculean effort was well worth it.
Thank YOU so much for the truly wonderful experience of working with all of you. I look forward to our next project.

It seems no matter what the task or difficulty to drive to completion she came through for us time and time again. Whatever we asked she remained willing to help and continue to come up with solutions to meet our needs on time. She also proved invaluable by keeping us on track with her requirements and timeframes in order to help manage our workflow.
Her follow up is amazing and the end results produced by you company look fantastic.
I would not think of calling anyone but her in the future for these types of jobs.
I’m so glad this worked out! Loved the good work you did. I’m glad
Andy contacted you at my suggestion & that you were able to do such an
amazing job. It’s greatly appreciated!
To Cathy Tucker- I can’t thank you enough for all of the dedication, hard work and amazing talent you put into my visual set ups each and every market. There were a few challenges along the way, but you were right there to make sure that everything came out smoothly… Your installers, Juan and Michael, were also extremely helpful and made the showroom come alive with the graphics and their meticulous install. All in all, it was a very successful market week presentation which could never, ever happen without the fabulous customer service and personal attention.
’The Lounge’ we created in this years Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse was another smashing success! Our goal to create something new and different in such a large space was received with comments such as ‘soothing’,’ stunning’, and ‘livable’. To this day we received comments, letters, email and further publicity on the event… I cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support…
Gennaro describes Duggal’s Marina Stark as a brilliant curator. “Working with Marina is a gift to any artist,
and working with the family of artists and technicians at Duggal is just a joy. When my collaborator
Lynne Lipton and I walked into Duggal we had no idea about what possible and I am so not a techie.
I had always imagined the models as bigger than life and wanted to give them their humanity back.
Each model has a personal story under the surface and we wanted to realize that.
Marina opened our eyes to a world of visual solutions. Seeing the models realized and dancing across
unexpected surfaces on a large scale is a dream come true. The reaction has been amazing. “
