Newspaper article mounting can transform an easily-damaged clipping into a lasting trophy. Walking into Garza Taxidermy in Corpus Christi, you’ll find no shortage of jaw-dropping trophies on the walls. Owner and chief artist Daniel Garza is a taxidermist who specializes in mounting saltwater fish. If the fish is gone, but the fish story has a photo to go with it, Garza can also create a life-sized replica. Some of Garza’s replicas are given a special touch that, to the untrained eye, looks like a whole new species – sometimes even complete with bull horns.
From Baffin Bay to Alamo City
When the San Antonio Express-News caught wind of a Facebook photo gone viral, Garza received some unexpected publicity in the form of a feature news story. Front and center in the story was a full-color photo of Garza holding the trophy that earned him such social media attention: a “bull red,” an ocean fish complete with horns and bovine spots. Fun with Photoshop – a photo of Garza releasing the “bull red” into Baffin Bay – put Garza’s shop in the news. It was a feel-good feature about 11 years of hard work and a young man who made a name for himself in the taxidermy world helping fishermen back up those fish tales. More importantly, the story made a name for Garza Taxidermy among Express-News readers, bringing notoriety that was a coup for a small shop along the coast.
The Story Was “This Big” — And Here’s The Proof
Patrons of Garza Taxidermy don’t have to wonder if the media tale is true – they can read the entire article, preserved with custom article mounting among walls full of Garza’s creations of fish, fowl and other critters. Business owners who make a product or offer a service usually know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they have the best product on the market. The key to marketing, even in a small local shop, is making sure everyone else knows that. At the very least, a lobby should showcase company and product achievements, accolades and growing popularity. Newspaper article mounting can help promote a company’s product using the testimony of unbiased third parties – less of a brag and more of a reporting of fact, you might say.
