FIPP's membership network includes more than 500 of the world's best-known media companies across more than 60 countries worldwide covering 30 national associations. Welcomed as new FIPP members at the end of 2017 are:
1. Mortons Media Group Limited, UK
Queen Victoria was on the throne when enterprising Lincolnshire publisher W K Morton brought mechanical typesetting to the market town of Horncastle.
Mortons of Horncastle Ltd. now has a reputation which extends far beyond the county boundaries. Publication of local newspapers within Lincolnshire provided the basis for a core of expertise which has enabled Mortons to develop as a contract printer for many newspaper and periodical publishers throughout Britain. In 2004 Mortons Media Group Ltd was formed after combining Mortons Motorcycle Media Ltd, and its heritage division, Mortons Media. Now, as one company, Mortons Media Group Ltd produces a wide portfolio of magazine titles, specialist publications, several major classic bike shows, and offers Europe's largest Motorcycle Archive.

Editorial content from Sweden's leading freelance journalists, photographers and subject experts.
Content Central is the marketplace where freelancers and media meet. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Simple, convenient, affordable and profitable for all parties.
2. Publiq, Switzerland
PUBLIQ is a nonprofit foundation that places authors at the center of the publishing and digital media industry by offering them an efficient and reliable ecosystem in which to interact and thrive. Authors have access to a free, secure, and censorship-resistant platform where they can upload their writings, protect them adequately within the latest blockchain architecture, and distribute them safely. Intermediaries or traditional publishing houses, which used to dominate the author in his or her work, are removed from the chain of creation and distribution.
PUBLIQ’s instant rewarding process encourages and incentivizes authors to share their talents with the world. Rewards are assigned daily to authors depending on their PUBLIQ Score – a reputation-scoring system exclusively shaped from the readers’ views and feedback. This unique evaluation system allows authors to be fairly rewarded as well as celebrated for their good work.

In the summer of 2008, I wrote an article for the magazine of the Custom Publishing Council called “Content.” And while I realise that was 10 years ago, some things never age, such as the content of the “Content” article. That’s a lot of “content” you might say, and I agree with you. But content, good content combined with experience making, is what magazines are all about and custom publishing is still just as relevant and prevalent as it was in ’08, even more so.20th Jul 2018 Opinion
