Our Distinction

We’ve always been guided by excellence. We work efficiently, write effectively, and deliver quality. For every customer. Every time.

Producing easy-to-read, impressive writing isn’t easy. For over 25 years, each of our writers has heard “Wow, I didn’t know it took all that!” quite a few times, as those we’ve helped commented on the depth of our approach. 

Trained by some of the best to bring you the best, we draw on old-fashioned inspiration and hard work to create products that will serve your best interests.

Our Inspiration

The legacy of our remarkable parents inspires us.

Our father, Henderson E. Formey, Jr., was a master wordsmith whose love for language was implanted in a one-room schoolhouse in rural Georgia. Throughout his life, this passion for well-written and well-spoken words anchored his devotion to his callings of educational administration and ministry.

Our mother, Eloise Copeland Formey, was a brilliant homemaker, brimming with an uncommon appreciation for excellence. As the navigator of our family, her impeccable attention to detail spoke volumes about her commitment to quality—a hallmark she instilled in us.

Thus, we deliver writing support with the complementary gifts of our parents in mind. The Formey Touch team’s passion for communications excellence refines every project.

As independent practitioners, it’s been our privilege, for decades, to have people from all walks of life entrust us with creating promotional and biographical content to meet their needs.
