Short Run Catalogs
Catalogs are perfect for providing customers and clients with information about your upcoming products and services. A catalog can be used for clothing retailers to display your seasonal collections, chain restaurants can use catalogs to show menu items and specials for a certain month, or websites can use them to give customers a better understanding of what products and services they can offer. There are many uses for catalogs, making a very functional form of marketing your business. Catalogs can also display discounts and savings to give customers more incentive to do business with you.
Short-run catalogs are highly recommended for companies that have subscribers who prefer physical mail. This is mostly pertaining to brick and mortar stores, but many businesses with online stores still use printed catalogs.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is saddle-stitched binding?
Saddle-stitching is a binding option where all the pages of the catalog are folded together and then stapled along the spine.
How many pages can my catalog have?
Your catalog can have any number of pages, from 8 pages up to 64 pages. Catalogs are printed in multiples of 4 pages, meaning you can have 8 pages, 12 pages, 16 pages, 20 pages, etc. until you reach 64 pages. If you have an odd number of pages, that's fine! You can have blank pages so that you reach the nearest multiple of 4.
Is there a difference between how short-run catalogs and bulk catalogs are printed?
Yes, short-run catalogs are printed using digital printing. The digital printing process makes the quality very high while still being able to print at a fast pace. For higher volumes, such as for bulk catalogs, we print them out using offset printing. This printing method allows us to print very large amounts of catalogs with just a slight (almost unnoticeable) loss of quality compared to digital printing. Offset printing is what enables us to print thousands of catalogs right before your deadline!
Will I receive my order in the turnaround time after placing the order?
After you place your order and upload a design, we will check to see if your design for if it's in the right file size, format, quality (if it looks blurry, difficult to read, etc.) and any other factors that may affect its design to ensure that you get the catalogs that you imagined. After we finalize the design and you approve of it we will then put the catalogs into production, and you should receive the catalog within the said turnaround time after it's been put into production.
