Automatic layout of catalogs and price lists

With software and web solutions, catalogs, flyers, technical manuals and price lists can be automatically paginated.

Although there are numerous possibilities for online publication, the printed catalog, the flyer, the technical manual and the price list, remain among the most popular and requested marketing materials by companies. This for several reasons, including:

  • the catalog and the printed list contributes to the brand's credibility and identity. Faced with a well-made company layout, the potential customer perceives that he is facing a solid company;
  • the catalog and the price list acts as a reminder. The printed images, tangible, browsable with the hands, remain more impressed in the mind;
  • some product sectors require very detailed catalogs and the layout on paper manages to offer a more effective overview than online browsing.

Automatic paging allows significant savings on the costs of creating a catalog of footwear, an electronic product catalog, a clothing catalog but also for the production of a price list, the layout of a flyer or an ad magazine economic.

Creating a product catalog or a price list and keeping it up to date is a demanding activity that involves different figures within the company and can put pressure on even the most close-knit teams. This is due to the fact that each editorial project, from the price list to the complete catalog, is made up of different phases, revision cycles that can be repeated numerous times and often, correcting one error if another is produced.
