A decade of journeys taken & stories told.

In summer 2009, a small group gathered inside a modest office space in Victoria, British Columbia with a simple (but ambitious) idea: make professional publishing services available to all writers, not just an elite select few. With the support of one of Canada’s largest book printers behind them, the door shingle was flipped to ‘Open’.

No one knew it then, but the FriesenPress team was set to begin an adventure that would span over ten years and 5000+ self-published book titles, growing from startup to the largest publishing services provider in Canada.

Join us as we look back on a decade of journeys taken and stories told, celebrating our authors and their amazing books along the way.

The adventure continues!


10 Years by the Numbers


A special thank-you

Authors, there is no us without you. A message from FriesenPress President Tammara Kennelly:


The Past, Present & Future of Self-Publishing

Maya Angelou once said, “If you don't know where you've come from, you don't know where you're going.”
