Professional publishing services – from editing and book design to production, distribution, and promotion support. We help writers self-publish and succeed.

FriesenPress is the clear path to better books.

We're proud to have partnered with thousands of authors on publishing nearly 5,000 book titles since our founding in 2009. Our unique process combines the professionalism and care of traditional publishing with the creative agility (and high author royalties) of DIY self-publishing. The result is a professionally bound and published book that’s 100% owned by the author.

FriesenPress is located and Victoria, British Columbia. We are wholly owned by Friesens Corporation, an award-winning book printer that has been in the book business since 1923. Friesens prints approximately 25 million books every year, including original editions of the Harry Potter series, The Walking Dead Omnibus, and the classic Oxford English Dictionary. We seek to honour Friesens’ exacting quality standards with every book we produce.
