Successful Press is an independent publisher based in Toronto. We are interested in projects that are unproven, unfinished, unstable, or otherwise experimental. Our publications are hand-finished, locally printed, and produced exclusively in open editions. We believe in publications that live and breathe, that wind up dog-eared and coffee-stained, and that are shared amongst friends.
We were founded in 2016 by Grayson James. Kenley Blackwood is our Managing Editor.
We can be contacted at help (at) successfulpress (dot) com if you have any questions, concerns, or thoughts.
All of our soft-goods are produced in unionized workshops in the U.S. Our publications are bound and printed by hand in our Toronto studio, using partially recycled papers and materials. We are currently a two-person team. We pay the artists we work with a 40% commission of every sale, and we cover all costs of production. All profits from the sales of softgoods are used to fund our publishing.
We accept submissions on an ongoing basis; please familiarize yourself with our mandate and our past work before reaching out.
