Fife Business Matters

For many years Multiprint have been printing Fife Business Matters, which is a magazine published on behalf of Fife Economy Partnership and funded by Fife Council Economic Development. We are pleased to share that we now also design the publication, with the latest issue showcasing a fresh new look!


We refreshed the previous design, changing the cover, page layouts and fonts to create a brand new look. Starting with the front cover, it now features a smaller masthead allowing more space for the cover image. It was important that the selected colours complimented this image but could also be incorporated throughout the publication.

Looking at the inside pages we have created a more open space with the headers and footers and kept to a two column layout. We feel this allows more room for larger images and clearer divides between the articles. Throughout the publication we have used the font Avenir, a classic sans-serif option with a variety of weights, which is clean and easy to read.

There have been lots of little tweaks to give Fife Business Matters a new modern look and we would love to hear what you think.


You can view Fife Business Matters in full at where there is an online flip book which can easily be used on desktop, tablet or mobile. A new feature within the flip book is that all the websites mentioned are hyperlinked, so you can easily access the company websites that are featured throughout the publication.


Fife Business Matters offers a regular insight into the extensive range of eclectic businesses operating in Fife, showcasing the drive, determination and passion of local businesses – large and small. It also acts as a source of information, as a means of inspiring, stimulating and motivating local entrepreneurs, business owners and start-up organisations.


Fife Business Matters is published quarterly and has a controlled circulation, distributed only to named individuals at key Fife businesses, local councillors, MSPs and MPs by post as well as online, which hosts the current issues of the publication, as well as some back copies.

Approximately 2,500 copies of fbm are printed and distributed each quarter, with readership estimated to be around 12,500. In addition, fbm has a strong online following.

“We’ve been featured in fbm a number of times over the years, and it’s always an extremely positive platform in which to share news with local businesses. it’s also a great read!” John Penman, Fife Fabrications
