One Catalog – Two Platforms

Place your order for print catalogs starting in July. Sign up for the Digital Edition anytime before October 1.


Beautifully designed, full-color catalog filled with great gift ideas for all ages. The complete title list is available in August. 


Catalogs are customized for your store. We’ll add your logo and store information to every catalog you order. Want to add a coupon or special message? We’ll help make your idea come to life.

Marketing Ideas

Make a plan for how you’ll distribute your catalogs.

  • Add them to bags and online orders
  • Direct mail catalogs to customers in certain zip codes and mail routes
  • Insert catalogs in your local newspaper


The catalog as a Shopping Webpage, customized with your store branding and linked to your website or e-commerce platform, PLUS three store branded emails to your customers to promote holiday shopping, powered by Shelf Awareness.


Stores can add up to nine titles of their choice to a Staff Favorites shelf.

Marketing Ideas

We promote your Shopping Webpage with three emails to your customers, but you can also use the link in your own promotions.

  • Share it on Social Media
  • Add a link to your website
  • Add a link to your email newsletter
  • Print a QR code for customers to use in store
