Product Content, Catalog Design, and Production Process Made Easy!
Your custom catalog starts with the SMS prolific product content library with up-to-date manufacturer logos and safety product images. We have over 30,000 products, 380,000 SKUs, and thousands of images and logos at your disposal! SMS has worked with over 1,500 manufacturers and suppliers securing approvals for each product specifically for use with your project.
Throughout the entire process, you will receive pre-press proofs at specific milestones, giving you multiple opportunities to review your content and design before we send it off to the printer.
As soon as you send in your product selection, we start working.
Sort your content the way you want - or let us do it for you. We can include any proprietary information you'd like - just send it in. The bottom line is that producing a full-line safety or industrial catalog is hard. We make it easy.
When we're finished, we'll continue to make your life easier by helping you collect supplier co-op dollars with custom, comprehensive supplier real estate invoice documents. We've found that an organized co-op plan can reduce the overall catalog investment by as much as 70%. Cha-ching!
