The Holiday Catalog & Campaign is absolutely free to our member stores, and branding specific to your store is an option with orders of 5,000 or more. The only cost to you is if you choose to insert into your local newspapers (we'll even coordinate that for you). Where have you seen the best success with the catalog?

In-store bag stuffing
Off-site venues (book fairs, events, pop-up shops)
Newspaper insertions
Website integration to your site
In-store displays
