The trusted resource for enthusiasts for nearly a Century.
Inspiration, instruction, products and services. We sit at the core of our vertical Communities providing the exceptional experience our enthusiasts have come to expect. And it is upon this tradition that we build and serve new, and future communities.
We nurture and grow our vertical communities, connecting consumers, our marketing partners and retailers. Expert, trusted, authoritative voices, product, and services.
Our Industry-Leading Transformation
Dramatic in Scope, Success in its Simplicity.
From traditional, two-dimensional publisher, to community-focused, Web-enabled, content creator and marketer of products and services for enthusiasts. By vertical community and consumer focus, not bound or defined by channel or product, with an “E-business” mindset: focused on eCommerce, eMedia, digital.
F+W’s evolution from print publisher to multimedia and ecommerce provider is driven by a culture of imagination and innovation and by people who are of the market, in the market, and fully engaged in the market. The world’s most dedicated and enthusiastic community members come to F+W because we share their passion, we share their hobby and a mutual respect.
F+W Media strives to offer the most complete – online and offline – customer experience for enthusiasts in all our communities, art, craft, antiques & collectibles, design, outdoors, and to offer the most targeted products and services for those who are as passionate as we are about our hobbies and special interests.
F+W fosters a culture of innovation and spirit of entrepreneurship within our organization. It’s this spirit of innovation which allows us to reinvent our Company – and our legacy product portfolio – to meet the needs and wants of today’s consumer.
