About Us

FAB Shop Magazine Direct

Our publication, FAB Shop Magazine Direct, is the first of its kind. There may be other fabricating magazines available, but none like FAB Shop.

With over two 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 our readers' needs.

Our magazine has unique editorial. We offer articles on laser maintenance, employee training, equipment set up and what’s new in equipment and processes, to name just a few. This is editorial written by reporters and veterans in the industry. They know what our readers are up against in making a company productive and profitable. No other magazine gives you this kind of editorial.
