Press Foundry is a Boston-based WordPress agency that provides website strategy, design, development, and maintenance services for clients ranging in scale from small businesses to enterprises. Collin Matthews created Press Foundry in 2012 to help businesses engage and sell on the web.
They have helped dozens of businesses, big and small, solve the toughest WordPress, WooCommerce, and Shopify problems – both in Boston and worldwide. Their resourceful, creative team determines and develops the perfect solution, then helps its clients feel in charge and in control throughout the build and after launch.
Clients come to them for their expertise in these platforms, their agility and direct relationship approach, and their vast industry experience from over a decade of projects with brands large and small. Many of them continue to return to Press Foundry for ongoing enhancements, with some relationships lasting more than 7 years and counting.
Press Foundry calls Boston home, but their team spans far across the U.S. and abroad. The same goes for our clients. Although they are a distributed team, they connect frequently to discuss their weekly roadmap, specific projects and tasks, process and systems enhancements, as well as updates on what is happening in their lives. As they are also a small team, at the forefront of their company culture is a high amount of collaboration on nearly all projects, so communication and a sense of ownership are two key components of their success as an agency.
