We are a full service

Indie
Publishing House

Our true passion? Stories.

We just love a good one. With a team of professional publishers, editors, and writers – we are here to bring your voice into the light.

What we do

We offer the whole shebang – from language editing to digital print on demand services. Even more exciting, we thrive on working with LGBTQ+ and minority writers, as well as giving unheard voices a platform.

Propagating Big Ideas. Uplifting unique voices.

We took the traditional publishing “box” and burned it. It was great, we used it as kindling to start the fire we gather round to tell stories under the stars. 

Why we are different

Well, for one thing we drink too much coffee, so we’re always just a tad over enthusiastic and hyped up. We are a team of  multi-faceted and multi-talented individuals who thrive on diversity, which is why Lorem Ipsum is a hybrid indie press, publishing house and marketing agency. Whether you are looking for someone to edit your annual report, language edit your academic manuscripts, or help you bring life to the novel that’s burning inside you – we’re your team.

Most importantly of all – we create space for your story, and we believe that every voice deserves to be heard.

We’re pretty versatile, and our team is old-school friendly, so why not get in touch and let’s find out what your story is?
