“When you desire high profits and need to please your most demanding clients, The Gift Book is the catalog of choice,” said Timothy M.

And there’s no better way for clients to say ‘thank you’ than with the outstanding items from this catalog.”
According to Counselor magazine, more industry sales occur in the fourth quarter than any other period during the year; much of it is due to end-buyers in need of quality items for incentives and corporate gift-giving programs. In fact, according to a recent ASI study of end-buyers, 91% of recipients take action as a result of something they noticed in a paper catalog, with nearly half (49%) purchasing a product.
