Winter Catalog

Increasing sales for booksellers and publishers during the busy holiday season

​Our book lover’s winter catalog is a highly valued, direct-to-consumer marketing piece featuring about 100 gift-worthy books in a wide range of subjects for adults and children of all ages. Designed as an interactive winter traffic-builder, our catalog drives indie bookstore sales in-store and online during the busy gift-giving season. The catalog is a time-tested and proven marketing tool. Stores report a higher rate of traffic once the catalog is in their customers’ hands.


​Using our catalog increases a book's sell-in; our dedicated booksellers increase a book's sell-through.
