How To Make Your Own Catalog

Handmade sellers Can boost sales by creating a catalog of the items they sell and their shop website can be listed in the catalog. You can lay them out at craft shows, put them in promo bags and hand them out at craft fairs, send them with your customers orders, and hand them out to family and friends. Some people don't own a computer or know how to shop online. If you give out catalogs they can order your handmade items by mail. People who have a copy of your catalog can show it to their family and friends and so on. Catalogs will open up a new opportunity of making sales just like your online shop and craft shows.

You can make your own catalog using a home computer. Just go to word perfect and select book format. Add pictures of your items and a description about the item and the price. You can make an order form by adding colums and rows. Add a section for your shipping charges, customer name and address, your name and address, and form of payments you except. Make sure you save your work. Then print your catalog out. You can even print out one catalog and get copies made of the catalog using a home coping machine. Or go some were like office max for copies or save your catalog to a disk and take it to a print shop. Making the catalog yourself is the cheapest way to go. It just cost paper and ink for the printer and copier.

Best of luck to everyone.
