Established in 2006 in the offices of The Tecumseh Herald - Homefront began as an exclusive real estate book and quickly morphed into a community lifestyle magazine. Originally mailed exclusively to every home and business in Tecumseh, we now reach far outside the Tecumseh area. The full-color glossy format has become a "must read" and therefore a "must advertise in..." publication.
Located 30 miles Southwest of Ann Arbor, we explore and bring to light the rich offerings this corner of Southeast Michigan has to offer. From farm to table recipes, antique offerings, loft renovations, personal stories and exciting events, our seasonal magazine focuses on the charm of small town living.
Known for taking immense pride in our work, we feel we succeed when our advertisers do. Our 3 time MPA (Michigan Press Association) Award Winning graphic artists create many successful ad campaigns for local small businesses wishing not to remain small. Our design fee is free and is incorporated in our ad space rates. Businesses using their own agencies are also welcome to spread the word to our avid readers.
We like to keep you up to date with what's going on right in your own backyard.
Here are some stories from our latest issue of Homefront.

By all accounts, Lieu is living the American dream.

"They're like postcards from home," is how one observer characterized the landscape photography of Greg Feight and Gwendolyn Day as he viewed the exhibition of portraits depicting the winding path of US 12 through southern Michigan. The photographic team assembled their display at Cherry Hill Performing Arts Theater near Canton, Michigan, not long ago. Read more
After working for other shops in the area, Angie Roulo-Bangert and Cheryl Van Dyke realized a dream when they opened 2 Thrifty Gypsies on the Boulevard in downtown Tecumseh. "This was the shop we always wanted to have," Roulo-Bangert said. "We feel blessed being downtown," said Van Dyke.

We love hearing your thoughts on the Homefront so much that we share it with others!
What a Brilliant idea for your advertisers!! I read every inch of every ad. Looking for your paperclip insert on one of your ads... This is a beautifully done publication. I hope I get one every time you print one.
I've always loved Tecumseh. It's such a pleasant place to shop. Keep up the good work.
To staff at Homefront Magazine, Thank you for the quality publication that I enjoy!
The advertisements are helpful since we have lived in Tecumseh area for a few years now, and I'm still learning about our town. The articles are full of history and information I always glean from. I try to take advantage of as many community activities as I can from the advanced notice provided. Thanks again & Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
I want to tell you how much I enjoy reading Homefront. I like the articles, I find useful business information from the ads & I always see interesting things to do in the calendar of events. I used to pick up Homefront when I was in Tecumseh shopping at What a Find! Consign. I was thrilled to get a copy delivered to my mailbox in Manchester.
Thanks again for a great magazine and making us aware of all that's available in not only Tecumseh but surrounding communities... Homefront is a winner again. It's a wonderful showcase for pure Michigan.
