I'm moving into wholesale this summer (after 2 years of selling out of my own store) and have been working on a catalog to send out to retailers. I want it to stand out, and I think I'm happy with this version, but I'm questioning myself too- is it too far from being a normal catalog? I'd greatly appreciate your opinions.

I'm making these out of fabrics I've found in thrift stores and from scraps I'd hoarded, to keep with the greenness of what we do with our products, so they're all going to be a little different. Do you like the concept here? I've had a few other versions but I think I like this one the best. Shoot, I dunno. Now looking at the pics maybe it's not. This is maybe driving me a little nuts.  Grin

It's certainly striking. It would really depend on how professional the inner pages are I think, but it looks good from what I ca see.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I like it! Cheesy I'm not a wholesale seller person thingy, but if I got a catalog like that in the mail, I'd be running off to beg my mom for money to order stuff from it x)

IMO - people will remember a catalogue like this and also your products. Go for it!!!

Those look pretty cool from here - if you can stand to make more of 'em, do it!

Thanks guys. They are a little bit of a pain to make but they really don't take much time to do (and are SO cheap), so it's worth it if they'll get me sales.

Hey, I know this thread is a little old, but I thought I'd add my 2 cents. When I used to work retail we'd get product catalogs sent to us (we didn't even do the buying, so do your research on who to send it to). After a while, the catalogs all start to look the same. But if we had gotten something like yours, we absolutely would have made sure we got it into the hands of the owner/buyer. Most of the other ones just ended up in the recycling bin.

So I guess what I'm saying is that it's fabulous!
