Welcome to the web edition of Shaker Life magazine.

The City of Shaker Heights has a national reputation for excellence in public education, architecturally rich housing options, exemplary public services, and a distinguished history as a progressive and diverse community. As a result, the Shaker brand has come to be associated with excellence on all levels. Shaker Life strives to convey excellence in all aspects of its publication, and has done so for more than 30 years.

Shaker Life has earned its share of accolades over the years, most recently winning a prestigious Apex Award for Publication Excellence in the category of Feature Writing for the article “Interior Design: A Fresh Look” by Jennifer Kuhel. The magazine has also received two Apex Awards in the Design & Illustration category — in 2016 for the design of the “Art & Artists” feature in the Spring 2015 issue and again in 2015 for the design of the “Living (In) History” feature in the Winter 2014 issue. In 2014, the magazine received a Savvy Award for excellence in marketing and communications.

If you’re a resident of Shaker Heights, then you’re already receiving the print edition of Shaker Life.
