Yearbooks are more than just ink on paper.

The employee-owners of Friesens take great pride in assisting customers in creating these special books that represent you and capture your memories forever in a way that only a yearbook can.

What do yearbooks mean to us?

Here’s our list:

  • They are a celebration of the diversity and friendships that make your school unique.
  • They connect people within your school to the groups, teams and clubs that define you.
  • Yearbooks are the ultimate sales brochure depicting what’s really important about your school.
  • They are a timeless archive of the memories you’ve shared with friends, fellow students, teachers and colleagues.
  • While various digital mediums will come and go…your yearbook will last forever.

I started as a Friesens customer in 1998 and have just finished my eighteenth yearbook with them this year. Every year I am impressed how good Friesens make our yearbooks look in print. I have had excellent relationships with all four of the Friesens Representatives I have worked with. They have given presentations, problem solved, helped when needed and have continually advised me of new advances to make our Yearbooks ever better. While in production, I regularly communicate with the plant about small technical issues that arise and always receive prompt and effective answers. I have been approached by all the other yearbook companies over the years and I tell them all the same thing, every time. I will not quit Friesens until they do something to lose me as a client. I’m still, and expect always to be, a Friesens client.

Friesens has worked well with (M.I.T.) Technique in our quest for superior quality. The helpful staff was eager to help us with custom color management requests, and the quality of the book is top notch.

After 10 years, 3 printers, numerous awards, and a few grey hairs, I thought I had seen it all until we worked with Friesens. In an industry where student publications are often treated as substandard – we welcome Friesens’ superior service, outstanding quality, and great prices.

“After I retired, I spent six years creating a 288-page, size 8, hardcover book on the history of my hometown, Utica, Michigan. I worked with Friesens rather than any of the companies I knew or had worked with at Utica High. I had a great experience with Friesens and would highly recommend them to yearbook advisers – or anyone else.”

The Talisman has worked to set the pace in the world of college yearbooks. Much of the publication’s success is a direct reflection of the relationship we have with Friesens. Their attention to detail, superior printing quality and knowledge of the printing industry allows the staff to create a publication that exceeds all expectations. The Talisman is not a traditional yearbook, and we would not have been able to breakthrough that mould without a printing company like Friesens.
