FriesenPress is wholly owned by Friesens Corporation, an award-winning North American book printer. We have been in the book business since 1923, and over the decades we have developed close relationships with many of North America’s traditional publishers. By capitalizing on these relationships, we have now created an important bridge between the traditional and the self-publishing worlds to the advantage of all independent authors.

A Path to Traditional Publishing
FriesenPress has a long history of helping our authors make the transition to traditional publishing. If your dream is to be picked up by a traditional publisher, the process of publishing with us can bring you much closer to that goal by a) improving the quality of your manuscript, b) empowering you with promotional tools, and c) helping you demonstrate the kind of marketplace success that will attract agents and publishers. Also, because our parent company, Friesens, is the go-to printer for many of the world's top publishing houses, our name is already synonymous with reliability, quality, and success.
