What’s Our Specialty? You!
Today. What’s on your agenda today? A meeting with the board? Membership calls? Putting out fires? Planning the next association event? The list goes on…as you know.
Time is something you can’t spare. But communication with your members is vital; keeping them informed and up-to-date on both association and industry issues is fundamental to everyone’s success.
Enter Matrix Group Publishing Inc. We’re a North American leader when it comes to the creation of specialty magazines and directories. Our purpose is to build a truly customized publication for your association, while giving you full control of all aspects of its creation.
Oh, and did we mention…our services are free!
Advertisements: Our professional sales team is trained to sell advertisements that make sense in your publication.
Editorial: Our editors have been responsible for thousands of prints over the course of their time with Matrix. They guide our clients through the process of determining magazine content, finding writers and keeping everyone on-task. They plan out schedules that work for everyone, and will take on as much of the magazine’s work load as our clients require.
Graphic Design: Our designers will transform your vision into a tangible product. They know associations, what to do and what not to do. If your members are young and hip, your magazine’s design will reflect that. If your members prefer larger font…just ask! Our graphic designers will create a layout that invites readers to explore the pages and the text within.
Printing: The advertisers have booked their space, the articles are written and the layout is ready to go. Now what? All you have to do is say the word and we’ll handle everything that follows. That’s right…you don’t lift another finger! We have well-established relationships with fantastic print houses so let us take care of those details.
Mailing and Distribution: We weren’t kidding when we said you don’t have to lift another finger. You provide the mailing list…we’ll do everything else, including handling all contact with the mailing house, Canada Post, and the U.S. Postal System. We can send one copy to each of your members…or 10! We can bulk ship another box to an upcoming conference. Wherever your magazine is needed, we’ll get it there.
Collections: Collections for advertising sales are a necessary and time-consuming process. That’s why we’ll handle it all for you. Our full-time collections team is well-trained, sensitive, patient and understanding.
Our high standards are unmistakable. They are evident in the quality of each and every publication we produce. And they are evident in the relationships we build with our clients.

Pushing the Envelope
“Matrix Group Publishing Inc. has been working with us on Pushing the Envelope for well over a decade. In that time their editorial staff have helped build the platform for great stories about the building envelope sector, educate our readers about industry trends and hot-button issues, and showcase our members and the great work they are doing across Canada. Better still, Matrix takes care of everything—working with our preferred authors to get content written, all the aspects of advertising and artwork, graphic design, mailing and distribution, and even collections. Our trust in their services makes it easy for us to guide each issue in our preferred direction and then hand off the bulk of work to their team so that we can focus on the business of running our association.”

“The Canadian Transportation Equipment Association (CTEA) had beenkeen to develop a magazine that focused on trailer and vocational truck manufacturing, and that appealed to our members, their customers and their potential customers. After a bit of a ‘false start’ on our own, Matrix Group Publishing Inc. came to the CTEA in 2008 with a game plan that was well-tailored to our association’s needs. Since the start of our partnership, Matrix and the CTEA have published many excellent editions. It is a pleasure working with the professionals at Matrix and we look forward to working together on many more premium quality editions of our magazine.”

“In the summer of 2006, our association debuted its very first copy of The VOICE, the official magazine of The Construction Users Roundtable. Since then and to this day, it has been a vehicle for the CURT organization to communicate with the industry, convey the message of the construction owner and stay on top of industry trends and issues. Matrix Group Publishing Inc. is an experienced publishing company that was instrumental in the creation of The VOICE and has continued to work diligently with us to make this a timely and successful publication. Matrix takes care of acquiring advertisements and contributing articles, writing and editing, printing and shipping. All of their employees are knowledgeable and responsive and to boot, they are always a pleasure to work with. We credit them with the publication of a first class association magazine.”
