About Us


  • Traditional publishing style for the self published author

  • Customized services

  • Artists and illustrators to bring words to life

Our approach is simple: we always remember that each client has invested enormous energy, time and creative thought in the work they have placed in our care. If it is a book, in a sense, is the author's child, and it is our responsibility to treat that child with care and help it reach its maximum potential.


The publishing services we offer are many and varied, but, in each of them, we offer choices, and the final decision in all cases belongs to the client.


Unlike many self publishing and production companies, we don't use cookie cutter solutions or options. Every service is customised for each individual client and we can work to any budget.


Our goal is to make certain that anyone that is chosen to work with you shares your enthusiasm for your particular genre and believes in the potential of the work you have created.


We provide general advice and information about the publishing process to give you what you need to make decisions. We have editors that are experienced in all areas of the process to help you make the most of your words. Our designers create a look that allows those words to have the greatest impact.

Our long-established relationships with a variety of printers around the world insure that, through them, we will provide you with careful attention to detail at competitive prices, regardless of the size of the print run.


Throughout each step in the process - from submitting your material to receiving your printed product - you will have individual and careful attention to guide and help you as your work comes to life.

Each member of the Tryptic team has extensive experience in publishing and production. Our fields of expertise vary and cover all areas of the publishing process. We share a creative passion, and we share the fact that the aspect of our work that gives us the most satisfaction is working closely with the client.


We work with large network of editors, designers, artists and photographers, each of whom is experienced at collaborating with the originator of the work. Because we have carefully selected these people, we can assure you that each is highly qualified in their field.


If all you need is one of these services, we are happy to arrange for one of these talented people to work with you. For example, authors that are beginning to work on a book often find the advice of an editor with whom they can discuss their idea at an early stage very useful.


Tryptic has a good working relationship with many high quality printers that can produce any size print run at reasonable prices. So, if you have something that is ready to be printed, we can arrange that for you and guarantee that the quality and price will please you.


We are creative people, and we enjoy working with talented people to bring the printed word to life. Most of all, we enjoy helping clients make their dream a reality.

"Publication was more than I expected. The quality of the paper and binding of the cover was excellent. There was a real synthesis between the design, the production and the content. Tryptic was able to offer me better pricing than their competitors without sacrificing quality. I look forward to working with them again."

Brian Dawn Chalkey

Author of 'The Alterity and Identity of Trans Imaginess'


"I found the Tryptic team knowledgeable, creative and efficient – a genuine pleasure to work with. They produced 200 hardback copies of my alphabet book. The quality of the book is top-notch, and at a price far better than the big online firm I was initially using. I recommend them without reservation."
