About Our Magazines
With our three monthly community magazine titles — Canton Family Life, North Fulton Family Life, and Woodstock Family Life — our mission is to share entertaining, positive stories about local arts and community events as well as timely educational information with our readers while also providing local businesses with a premium outlet for community-based advertising. Our publications feature seasoned writers and local photography, which is bound together with aesthetically appealing graphics by our talented team.
Also, with many community partnerships already in place, we're always looking to help/give back to the cities we serve, as we grow with them. We choose the print on 100% certified sustainable paper to limit demand on our forests and 96% uncoated paper to protect our water sources.
Family Life Publications has the largest monthly circulation of direct-mailed community magazines. Every month, 30,000 complimentary copies of each magazine title are printed, and more than 28,000 of those are direct-mailed to highly sought after communities in each respective area, with the remaining copies placed on racks in local businesses in the cities we serve.
In addition, over 5,200 digital copies are emailed to our subscribers. Every ad in the digital editions has a direct link to each advertiser’s website, so readers can easily access more information about local businesses.
Canton Family Life is our hometown community magazine — our office is located here. It reaches more than 30,000 homes and businesses in Canton, which includes the downtown area, the Sixes/BridgeMill area, Holly Springs, Hickory Flat, parts of Ball Ground, and Waleska.
North Fulton Family Life is the ONLY direct-mailed monthly community magazine in the area, reaching the highest demographics in Roswell, Alpharetta, and Milton — centering around the Crabapple/Rucker Road area with a publication rich in community content.
Woodstock Family Life is the ONLY community magazine that reaches downtown Woodstock AND Towne Lake, targeting the highest demographics from those areas, north to Hickory Flat, and toward the Roswell border to the east with one informative magazine.
It’s always a great time to add life to your business. We welcome your comments and story ideas. Digital and mailed subscriptions are available.
