18 | LUXlife Magazine allhogs is a customisable wall décor company located in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Established in 2006 by friends Paul Conklin and Mark Seremet when they noticed a gap in the market, Wallhogs specialises in removable and reusable wall decals for both residential and commercial use. From two friends operating out of a one-car garage, to a worldwide brand operating out of two facilities encompassing over 8,000 square feet, Wallhogs has expanded considerably in almost 20 years. CoFounder Paul Conklin attributes the success to the company’s effective communication with customers. He says, “by prioritising communication, we have built strong relationships with our clients and continue to uphold our core value of delivering exceptional results.” Through having its team on hand to answer any customer queries or concerns, Wallhogs is able to build a foundation of trust and support with its clients. From the beginning, Wallhogs has remained consistent in its processes and materials used. New materials have been introduced, when necessary, but Wallhogs has stayed true to its values as time has passed. The company uses only the highest quality materials in production, and only add new elements when it will benefit its clients. While similar businesses have come and gone, Wallhogs has remained steadfast in its position in the market. Wallhogs aims to make the process as easy as possible for its clients, from having a simple website that allows clients to upload images for bespoke wall art décor, to having its team on-hand every step of the way. Once purchased, clients are offered a Limited Lifetime Warranty, a 10-Day Price Match Guarantee, and a 30-Day No Hassle Returns option to ensure that customer satisfaction extends beyond the product itself. This is reflected in the company’s client base – with nearly 40% of sales come from returning customers who have had a positive experience with their purchase. “At our company, we believe that excellence is not a one-time goal, but rather a continuous journey.” As for longevity, Paul predicts that Wallhogs will only expand its reach across the globe. One of Wallhogs’ primary selling points is that it gives renters the ability to remove and reuse its products without causing damage to the property, a concept that had been sorely overlooked until Wallhogs’ emergence into the market. Not only do its products suit renters perfectly, but Wallhogs also caters to businesses looking for custom wall décor for their buildings.
