Printed catalogs are still used for a variety of businesses today from manufacturing and retail to associations and organizations. In a survey by Forbes Magazine, it shows 95% of readers loudly preferred the printed version over an online e-zine.


Manufacturing Catalogs

Manufacturing companies are one of the largest industries that use printed catalogs. They can be mailed to their customers and distributors. An digital version can be uploaded to the website and can be emailed to customers. They are used at trade shows and sales meetings.

A catalog lists the company’s products, product numbers and parts. It can include 24 to 100 or more pages. Perfect-bound is the most popular type of binding. The pages are gathered into a book and glue is attached to the spine. Saddle-stitching and tape binding is used for catalogs with fewer pages. Ring-binding or spiral binding is often used for presentations.
