TLC Graphics is dedicated to assisting indie and small publishers as well as professionals who want to publish a book to augment their business or speaking credibility. Whether you’re established, growing, or just getting started, our team will guide your manuscript through editorial, design, and printing to provide a beautiful and salable book you’ll be proud to represent. Quality is of the utmost importance to us. Once the book is produced, we remain by your side through post-production to assist in developing and designing coordinating marketing products, your trade show booth, or a new web site. We also offer warehousing and order fulfillment via your website. If it’s PR, marketing, or distribution you need, we’ll help you find the right firm to fill those needs.

Thus Began TLC Graphics

Book design is the foundation of the business begun by Tamara Dever over 25 years ago. What started as one person’s passion for beautiful and salable design has since grown into a full-fledged book creation firm. After several years of designing for independent publishers but sending them elsewhere for all other production needs, the TLC team decided to utilize our longtime relationships with other industry service providers to add editing, proofreading, indexing, and printing to our already award-winning design services. Our clients were thrilled and people continue to hire us for the complete range of high-quality services offered. If you already have some of these roles filled, we’d be happy to work with you to complete your professional team, though working with TLC on at least one aspect of design is required.

TLC Graphics provides nationally-recognized book creation, including:

  • Book cover and interior design
  • Editing, proofreading, ghostwriting, and indexing
  • Digital and offset printing
  • Marketing design (bookmarks, postcards, sell sheets, trade show booth creation, etc.)
  • E-book conversion
  • PR and marketing
  • Warehousing and order fulfillment
  • Outstanding and personal customer service
