The TIPs team works together to deliver on time, on budget, and on target.
TIPS was founded in 1972 by three local entrepreneurs. With a focus on quality and customer service from the beginning, they worked hard to transform TIPS into a very strong printing company.
In 1985, current owner Wayne Chambers started working at TIPS, beginning in production and sales. After gaining additional skills with other companies, Wayne came back to his roots, made an investment in the company, and purchased Tennessee Industrial Printing with Gary Moore in 2006.
With extensive knowledge of the printing industry and TIPS, as a company, Wayne purchased the full company in 2020. Today, TIPS has grown to 25 employees, printing items for local and regional businesses, as well as items for multiple Fortune 500 Companies located across the United States.
The Team at TIPS makes it happen.
