Dear Delta Publishing Family,

My name is Jim Caughorn, and I am the President and Owner of Graphic Creations, Inc. based in Knoxville, Tennessee. My Dad started Graphic Creations in 1987, the same year Carl started Delta Publishing. Although they did not know each other, they were two very focused entrepreneurs that were destined to be successful.

In 2009, I bought my dad’s portion of Graphic Creations and later in 2018, I bought out my partner to take 100% ownership of Graphic Creations. Over the last 10 years, Graphic Creations has continued to grow and expand our services to better serve our clients.

In 2019 Carl started exploring his potential exit strategy. Many printers he had used in the past had gone out of business or their capabilities had changed, leading things to work out differently than he needed. His Daughter, Shauna, felt Graphic Creations would be a good fit for Carl’s needs and introduced us almost 2 years ago. As Graphic Creations began helping Carl print his schedules, the relationship grew, and we began discussing purchasing Delta Publishing. The synergies between the two companies are undeniable. Our focus, as is Delta Publishing’s, is to always do whatever it takes for clients and always strive to do the right thing.

On May 6th, we completed the purchase of Delta Publishing and are so excited to get to know every one of Delta’s loyal customers! Carl and Dean will both stay a part of the team and be your primary contact. I believe they both want to work and love on their customers for a long time. We are just relieving Carl of a lot of the administrative work and allowing him to focus on sales and relationships.

The only changes that you will see in 2022 will be invoicing and how you receive your proofs. Invoicing will come from Graphic Creations versus Delta Publishing. We will also provide a digital proof and a hard copy proof that will be sent to you as well. Additionally, there will be no extra charge to do your logos/artwork in full color. In the past, if your logo was not just black ink, there was an up-charge. We will do all logos for the black ink price in full color where applicable.

Once again, we are honored to bring Delta Publishing into the GC family and look forward to working with you all this football season. If you have any suggestions or concerns, please reach out to me personally.
