Catalog Questions & Answers
What is an e-commerce enabled catalog?
An e-commerce enabled catalog is like a traditional printed catalog
in that it features items available only in your store or over the phone.
However, our program also includes a branded, online ecommerce fulfillment
center offering popular, commodity items available both in your store and
online. Why not use the same catalog to drive traffic to all of your sales
channels? So, even if your customers do not come into your store, they
can still buy from you, online or by phone.

vault using your username and password.
What if I don't have a mailing list?
Don't worry. We work with national mailing list houses and all the major outdoor
magazines. We can get lists of all the prospects in your area, so you generate
more traffic and more sales.
What about postage?
Estimated postage and handling costs are built into the price of the catalog.
Postage and handling costs are typically around 25 cents per piece, but can vary
depending on the presort and the population density of the zip codes that comprise
your mailing list.
