Editorial Guidelines: Press Releases
MoldMaking Technology welcomes press releases for news and for products and services related to the moldmaking industry.
The Products section of MoldMaking Technology (MMT) highlights equipment, software, components, services and other mold-specific innovations. Products appear online and in print. MMT will edit submitted product material and post it online without seeking final
Tips on Providing Material that Targets a Moldmaking Audience
If you want to capture the attention of your intended audience, you first must capture the editor’s attention. Keep in mind that editors receive an abundance of press materials that must be reviewed for relevance. MoldMaking Technology serves a niche audience, and
it consequently strives to provide material that directly engages moldmakers and not simply manufacturing professionals more generally. Generic, one-size-fits-all product submissions fail to demonstrate to moldmakers exactly why a product is suitable for their unique processes and the challenges that they face. In submitting material to MoldMaking Technology for consideration, think about how your product fulfills a need or solves a problem that moldmakers have, and be sure that that the press material clearly explains how the product provides a solution to that problem or adds value.
MMT is looking for material that:
- highlights a new product or that highlights a new feature or improvement on an existing product
- calls out a specific moldmaking application, feature or function within a product
- is rich in other details about the product
- is 200-500 words in length
- includes a high-resolution (300 dpi) photo of the product or a screenshot of the software (if that is applicable)
Show Product Guidelines
