“It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.”
 Gabriel García Márquez

Like all great ideas, Roland Press was founded in the local beer garden in Berlin. Roland Press was founded on the ideals of publishing and printing great books that would be affordable to every book lover, wandering somewhere in the world. Roland Press opposes to the idea that a book is merely a luxury item. Roland Press is proud to work with series of the best contributors available and strengthening the freelance community in Berlin.

Books come in all shapes and forms and we at Roland Press are interested in publishing books that not always get the attention they deserve in our opinion. There is no such thing as too controversial, too difficult, too explicit, too violent, too romantic, too sappy or too childish. There is no such thing as ‘too’.

Our mission is to help small to mid-size publishers and authors to print their work at the best price without compromising the quality of the work. We aim to provide our clients a friendly and efficient working environment.

We think that Roland Press has a bright future ahead and we look forward to see you in it.
