MBNews – It’s Happening!
MBNews is the official monthly publication of the Monument Builders of North America. The Issue date for MBNews is the first of every month.

Monument Builders of North America – Our Mission
To define and promote memorialization in a viable, innovative and diversified way for the membership and to enhance the awareness of memorialization by the general public and the remembrance industry.

WHO Reads MBNews?
MBNews’ mail-out circulation is nearly 1,000 copies. Its subscribers are MBNA members in North America with about 60 of those outside of North America. Members are primarily owners of monument retailing companies or Certified Memorialists® within a monument builder shop. These are the key people who buy and specify products and supplies—everything from granite, small hand tools used in the industry, to trucks and truck-mounted cranes. The companies range in size from one to two person operations to companies with 30 or more employees.

The pass-along readership is very good within these companies. Total readership of any monthly issue is estimated at up to 3,000 people who buy or specify products. In addition, because of the “art” aspects of memorials featured and the high quality of the magazine, readers tend to keep their copies available for future reference. Your ad placed in MBNews will receive great exposure over a long period of time.
