We've got a new name and we're embracing new mediums to tell Etsy’s story—including a digital magazine.

For the last 10 years, we’ve used this space to tell the stories of Etsy’s global community of makers, collectors, buyers, and sellers. We’ve had a few names in that time, but we've always been a publication with big ambitions, covering far-ranging subjects like cosplay culture, the tiny house movement, and even sustainable seafood. We've shared expert tips and ideas on everything from artistic living to kitchen makeovers, and our obsession with DIY has yielded hundreds of original craft projects, including terrariums made of candy and a pressed-flower phone case that went positively viral. Through it all, we’ve shared the stories of inspiring creatives and focused on the conversations that matter to us most: innovation, design, entrepreneurship, and artistic practice. Today, we're embracing new formats and mediums to tell Etsy’s story—including a digital magazine—and we’re giving the Etsy Blog a new moniker that encompasses our evolving focus. Welcome to the Etsy Journal, your source for ideas and inspiration for creative living. Join us as we visit artists’ studios and learn their stories, highlight emerging trends, and share DIYs to bring out your creative side. Explore our digital magazine below and tell us what you think in the comments.
