Incorporated in Colorado in 2003, Outskirts Press was created as a better way for authors to write,
publish, and market their books. Through strategic partnerships, exemplary customer service, and
unmatched quality, Outskirts Press quickly became the fastest-growing full-service book publishing and
book marketing firm.
The years between 2004 and 2006 marked a growth rate in excess of 1,500%, an accomplishment that was
recognized in July 2007 by The Denver Business Journal when Outskirts Press was honored to be the 3rd-fastest-growing
privately held company (in any industry) in Colorado.
By the end of 2006, Outskirts Press had nearly 1,000 books in print, all of them available worldwide
through Ingram, Baker & Taylor, Amazon, Barnes & Noble.com, and thousands of other retailers.
And by the end of 2007, Outskirts Press more than doubled its published book totals again to more than
2,000 total books published.
In 2008 The Denver Business Journal once again recognized Outskirts Press as the fastest-growing
publisher, and in fact, the fastest-growing privately held small-to-medium sized company in Colorado (in
any industry), boasting growth of over 500% for the years between 2005-2007.
In 2009 Outskirts Press published its 5,000th book and became the only self-publishing company to appear
on the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing privately held companies in America.
In 2010, 2011, and 2012, Outskirts Press repeated its appearance on the Inc. 5000 list three more times
and became the only self-publishing company to appear on the list of top 5,000 fastest growing private
businesses in America for four straight years.
2012 also marked the 10-year anniversary of the company's founding and the publication of its 10,000th
book. What took seven years to accomplish the first time (publishing 5,000 different titles) was
repeated in less than three.
Ten short years after its incorporation in 2003, 2013 was a celebratory and banner year for Outskirts
Press and heralded the maturation of an industry success story. Outskirts Press published more books in
calendar year 2013 than in its first five years combined, and, in fact, more books in a single year than
ever before, a feat that was duplicated again in 2015.
In 2016, Outskirts Press unveiled all-new book publishing packages. What once was the "gem of custom book
publishing" with packages like the Diamond, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, and Pearl became the only A+ rated
and #1-rated self-publishing company according to the Better Business Bureau and Top Consumer Reviews,
respectively. We provide our authors with the most flexibility anywhere, with more customization, more
free inclusions, and more helpful services to make you a success.
By the end of 2020, nearly 30,000 different editions (ranging from paperbacks, hardbacks, eBooks, and
audiobooks) from thousands upon thousands of authors just like you were for sale from approximately
60,000 sales channels around the world including Amazon, Ingram, Barnes & Noble, Powells, Wal-Mart,
and many more.
As we look toward the future, our commitment to produce high-quality books and offer high levels of
support to our authors in all three phases of their journey (writing, publishing, marketing), only grows
