Darlene Swanson has worked on two children’s picture books for me. Her work is prompt, efficient, and at a fair price! She is so talented and easy to work with. For book design and help with uploading files, I’ll use her every time!

I have been working on publishing my first illustrated Children's book and was having a difficult time meeting the parameters of Ingram Spark because I am a novice and the process is detailed. Dan and Darlene from Van-garde Imagery, Inc. to the rescue! They were able to take my book and make it print-ready, making my publishing dreams come true. Thank you Dan & Darlene!

As a first-time publisher, I was searching carefully for someone with experience to design my cover, interior layout, and upload my children’s book onto Ingramsparks. I discovered a link to Van-garde Imagery listed on the Ingramspark website as an "interior design expert." This link told me all I needed to know. Van-garde Imagery was undoubtedly highly skilled, experienced, and well thought of in the book industry. As a newbie, this discovery gave me the confidence to make one of my most important publishing decisions.
Darlene and Dan did not disappoint. I found them to be creative, detail oriented, timely, and patient with my endless questions. My children’s book looks very professional. I highly recommend them!
