APH Tactile Graphic Image Library

This resource offers a pool of tactile graphic images.

APH’s Tactile Graphic Image Library (TGIL) offers a pool of free templates to assist with the creation of tactile graphics.  Register for a free account to get started!   There is a forum on the site and members of the community may submit images to the library.


Tristan Pierce shares an idea on how to use the TGIL to create stories in the image below.

  1. Download image from the TGIL and print.
  2. Cut out image.
  3. Place cut-out image on opaque paper, cardboard, or foam, and cut silhouette with an x-acto knife.  Tape colored tissue paper on back.
  4. Trace the image details with a thick black marker.  Place on the Light Box Ledge and turn off the lights.
