opportunities that other options under certain circumnstances

Catalog printing seems to have taken a backseat to the emergence of ecommerce platforms online, but many businesses still swear by the traditional color printed catalogs to mail to their customers. What many businesses don't realize is that color catalogs have many more uses than just as a marketing piece to highlight products. While it is true that product catalogs are still the most prevalent mailing, smart companies who use printed catalogs to market other services have an even better chance of attracting prospects.

"Smart companies use printed catalogs to market other services have an even better chance of attracting prospects"

Often called booklets, a commercial catalog can be used to illustrate services, tell customers about the company, and market upcoming promotions and much more. Each catalog page can be used for a very specific purpose. For example, a medical facility can use a color print catalog to offer information about the variety of services available to its patients. Each catalog page could represent a different service offered – one for pediatric care, disease prevention, health information, helpful tips and more. Why stop with simply using a color catalog just to sell products when the opportunities are endless?
