For over 70 years, customers have trusted us with their creative and marketing materials to transform, convert, engrave, compose, modify, and manage how their brand is represented.
We help connect their brand expressions in newsprint, catalogs, broadcast media, websites, social networks, and other channels so they can express themselves consistently to the market.
Once those expressions reach the right audience, they inspire people to take action.
Arthur and Emily Widen took out a $1,500 mortgage to start Widen Engraving. Arthur’s experience working in the Madison newspaper industry paired with Emily’s financial support from her job in the insurance industry laid the foundation for Widen.
Widen Engraving received and transferred creative and marketing materials from type and photos onto plates, resulting in newsprint. This process helped inform and inspire the community.
Widen Colourgraphics received, composed, and converted creative and marketing content in the form of photos, illustrations, logos, and copy. We brought that content to life through printed catalogs and advertisements.
Widen Enterprises organizes messages across a range of formats, like photos, videos, audio, illustrations, logos, and copy. We format and govern this media to help organizations creatively express themselves online, in broadcast, and in print so they can inform, entertain, and inspire the market.
In 2007, we selected Amazon Web Services as the cornerstone for the Widen Collective®. The need arose for privacy, security, scalability, and access.
The annual Widen Summit event brings digital asset management practitioners and Widen staff together to learn, share experiences, and build relationships.
As the software side of the business booms, our office space needed to be renovated to foster the collaborative, cross-team culture that developed.
We've dedicated ourselves to high standards of democratic organizational design and leadership. These principles have shaped our culture and unique approach to HR.
To further serve our customers around the world, we opened our first office outside of the United States. We’re excited as our service teams match the global reach of our software.
