Did you know returning a tear sheet is fast and easy? We’re here to help you save time and make sending tear sheets a breeze.

To convey the success of an article, we “count” printed circulation numbers, or earned media impressions, and report them to our clients. That’s why we ask editors to provide proof of print publication (“tear sheets,” usually PDFs of the page the article is on) or online placement with a link to the website showing Family Features’ content.

Engaging Your Readers with QR Codes

Arkansas Possum Pie

Family Features is always working to enhance readers’ experiences, thus providing more engagement for your publication.

Bringing the latest QR Technology to our content solutions for editors, Quick Response (QR) code is a type of matrix barcode invented in 1994 by the Japanese automotive company Denso Wave.

The reader takes a picture with his or her phone of the QR code in your published Family Features article and a tracker redirects to a website or YouTube video related to the article.

Why a QR code?

This is another tool to engage readers by combining print and digital!

Family Features' Content Development Team

As Media Relations Manager, the most common question I’m asked is why Family Features offers its print, digital and video content for free.

I’m sure they think, "How can they run a business giving everything away free?"

Family Features has operated successfully on this model since 1974.

The premise is simple: We work with nationally recognized companies, associations and government organizations that pay us to produce high-quality, solutions-oriented articles and offer them to our nationwide network of editors via our editors site.
