The Word Forge is a freelance marketing consultancy that has been working words into results for our clients since 2001. Principal Mary Shafer is an industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience in
  • commercial copywriting
  • advertising
  • promotion
  • public relations
  • graphic design
When possible, she operates with a bias toward sustainable practices:
  • using less paper and energy by substituting digital media for print
  • using the phone and the Web for meetings instead of traveling
  • specifying natural products as promo specialties
She also favors sustainable relationship practices:
  • mutual respect between service providers and clients
  • open, honest communication
  • responsible, accountable handling of budgets
  • delivering what's expected and more.
We're proud of our work for socially conscious businesses and non-profit organizations. We won't accept work from any entity that exploits, damages or disrespects our planet or those living on it.
