Testimonials

My name is Danny Pehar and I’ve been a customer with Friesens for about a year now, and I have always been extremely impressed with your organization’s professionalism, customer service, speed and overall ease to work with.

And as much as I liked you guys before, I like you even more now! This past week I felt that one of your team members went above and beyond the call of duty.

I had a tricky order to place for one of my clients that needed a special request, and so for the first time ever I called my customer service rep (Scott Cherewayko) and he was absolutely phenomenal the entire time, he gave me detailed instructions of what I needed to do, and followed up with me through the entire process.

My client gave me a very tricky request, but Scott made it so easy to accommodate. I’ve always been a big fan of Friesens, now even more so!

I think in this world of big companies that have poor customer service it’s nice to know that there are still companies out there like Friesens that get it!

Barbados Anniversary
We just wanted to express our appreciation to Friesens for extending their efforts to accommodate Grant Morris and the editorial team responsible for the production of the book. The editorial team invested an extensive amount of time and energy into this endeavor, and as the graphic designers for the project, we were first-hand witnesses to that fact. To have these books ready for the launch meant more to everyone than you think.

Your company had already come highly recommended, and, as we were also involved in the process of comparing printers and proposed rates, we have to say that after Lisa’s initial conversation with you, she instantly felt Friesens was the company to go with. Thanks again to your team!

I just heard from the others who received their advances, Steve Buccellato says “Christmas came early – I just received my advance copies of Man of Peace! I think it looks fantastic.” Another said “I did literally weep with joy when I held it in my hands.” 

Thanks so much, it’s been a pleasure as well, you’ve made some people very happy today.

Heaven on the Headwaters
Just wanted to let you know we were ecstatic about the final product. So far on the limited distribution to Association members we have had nothing but rave reviews as to content and the quality of the production. My wife and I and Jeffrey would give Friesens the highest recommendation to any potential customer. All of us learned so much and if we ever did it again, the process would go much smoother from our end of the equation. Scott was an excellent client rep and was so helpful and responsive.
