"I have been working with Tapestry Press Publishing for 14 years. My publishing coordinator, Ms. Elizabeth Miskin, and the staff have been phenomenal and very forthcoming with information during the entire process. The staff is highly skilled and experienced. This publisher always goes the extra mile on many occasions to ensure that the customer experience would be perfect. Always on time and informative. I am so grateful to the Tapestry Press publishing staff. Thank you."
Tapestry Press has been publishing Strategies for College Success, the textbook that is required for our Freshman Orientation course at Morgan State University, for over twenty years. The company offers a personal commitment to its clients that far exceeds its competitors. Their one-on-one approach to meet with me and our instructors to ensure our needs are being met so that our students’ needs are being addressed has been the emphasis of this publisher's approach. Tapestry Press gives an excellent example of being client-centered.
We have worked with Tapestry Press for over fifteen years to develop and deliver a custom textbook for a university-wide General Education course. Tapestry staff have been unfailingly helpful, gracious, and personable in helping us achieve our aims, including finding reasonable pricing on copyrighted material and producing a high-quality product for our students. They work meticulously through budgetary, time, and publishing constraints with us, and each time, the result is better than we could have expected. We would not hesitate to use them for future projects, and we highly recommend them.
Having worked with other custom text publishers, I know the difference. Tapestry Press is outstanding, without reservation. The quality of the product is superior and the service from Tapestry is resourceful, responsive, personally-oriented, and invariably gracious. You will be surprised at how good your own instructional materials can look! Tapestry Press's careful editing and scrutiny make you, the instructor, look great. Importantly, there is never a delay receiving books, even extra copies, so students are always able to obtain class materials. In addition, the University bookstores appreciate working with Tapestry Press because of their cooperative, friendly, and professional service.
