Practical Welding Today relaunched as The WELDER
FMA Communications (FMAC), Elgin, Ill., has announced
that its publication;Practical Welding Today has become The
WELDER, a relaunch with new features, a new look, and a new
focus on the welder. The first issue to reflect the changes was
the September/October issue. The publication will maintain
its current subscriber base as well as its bimonthly frequency.
Subscribers will have more opportunities to participate in
The WELDER’s media brand. “Welding Hacks,” for example,
lets subscribers submit their own fixes from the field in a “
wisdom of crowds” approach. Subscribers also can expect to see
more case studies.
Online, viewers will continue to see such highlights as videos and webinars. New to the site will be a gallery of projects
and a collection of Welding Hacks, many of which do not appear in print.
“Welders are passionate about their cra;,” said Amanda
Carlson, editor of The WELDER. “We spend a lot of time with
our readers, and we know that they are very creative and
proud of what they do. These changes reflect the spirit of our
subscribers. And the content is more practical than ever.”
Additionally, advertisers will gain from new lead-generation
programs across all media touched by The WELDER. “We’re ex-
cited about the brand,” said Dave Bram-
bert, group publisher of FMAC. “We get
positive feedback from our subscribers
on a regular basis, and this builds on
what we know about the welder.
“Our go-to-market strategy is three-

who these people are, what kind of pur-
chasing power they have, and how en-
gaged they are with our brand. We are
very excited to improve how we serve
both readers and advertisers.”
