Our Story

From humble reprinting roots to internationally known digital publisher.

The Nxtbook Story begins in the early 1990s, long before digital was an everyday experience. In fact, our three original partners (Michael, Rox, and Jim) met while working at a printing firm.

Upon uncovering their joy of working with one another, they started their own business that delivered reprinted magazine articles, delivering a high-quality product and service to publishers around the country.

In the early 2000s, a new technology emerged that could digitize reprinted articles for faster turnaround times and wider distribution. The partners saw a big opportunity to digitize entire magazine publications and approached content creators to share this new technology.

Upon finding trepidation as well as genuine interest, Nxtbook Media was launched in 2003 to serve the needs of more digital-focused publishers.

Today, our fully responsive PageRaft and replica nxtbook4 platforms see over one million readers every month to thousands of digital publications, with the average visitor staying engaged for over 7 minutes per visit.

Additionally, we have branched out well beyond publishers to serve organizations of all types and modified our platforms to meet the needs of a myriad of industries.

All along the way, we’ve lived with this desire to “Exist to Inspire”. We want to come into work to inspire our clients, each other, and the community that we live in.

With this in mind, we have made it a priority to give back in any way we can, whether that be serving as a leadership giver for our local United Way, helping with lunch or dinner service at Water Street Mission, or providing marketing assistance with local Chamber events. In fact, through our internal Do Unto Others initiative, we have given hundreds of hours in service to our local community.
