With several years of articles, FAB Shop Magazine Direct is growing in its efforts to help sheet-metal fabricators with editorial that pointedly serves the industry, because it’s all about serving the readers’ needs.

Because our editorial is well read, it brings in the decision makers for sheet-metal products and services. No other magazine can match FAB Shop Magazine Direct’s reader reach either, as it’s delivered by email to a guaranteed circulation of over 70,000 of those equipment decision makers in the U.S. and Canada. In fact, we provide high-quality leads, because we’re able to track every single one along with each magazine viewer. We can even tell you how much time was spent by a reader on each ad or article.

The way people get the information they need has changed. Print media is losing ground to digital media. And since day one, Techgen Media has been committed to the ever-evolving world of publishing. With our combined, broad circulation and outstanding editorial content, we strive to meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s metalworking executives.

Print Media
  • BPA Audit only shows issues mailed

  • Ads are confined to within the publication
  • Limited accessibility
  • Geared more for older generations
Digital Media
  • Digital media provides full analytics
  • Feedback and lead generation can be instant

Digital media offers the data that matters – opens, clicks, time spent, contact info and more. BPA audits can only say how many issues were mailed. Whether those issues were tossed in the trashcan is unknown.

Digital media is also more well-received from the next generation of industry leaders, and digital reach isn’t limited to subscribers. Magazine issues can be accessed online at anytime by anyone.


Digital publications are inherently more dynamic than their print counterparts. Online experiences are enhanced thanks to embedded videos that showcase equipment in action. Links back to company websites for further reading and research are also helpful to readers.

Digital media can be read anywhere at anytime. Back issues are archived, enabling readers to revisit past content without the hassle of stockpiling old print magazines.


The bulk of today’s marketing professionals aren’t sending their ad messages via snail mail. They’re taking advantage of online opportunities in a variety of sophisticated ways. From email marketing to social media and search engine optimization, savvy marketers know that digital tools are more effective than their outdated print counterparts.
