    Do you put your labels on the Front or Back of the catalogs? Or Both?

    I was listening to a training on CC and the speaker said that they put them on the front. Just wondering your thoughts...

    I put one on the front listing the host benefits.
    I put my contact info on the back.
    I put an address label with my website over the HO website inside the catalog where it talks about wedding registries.

    I put my info on the back. But old ones that I'm dropping off at places, I leave info on the front as well.

    Rae,
    Have you posted your host benefits label before? If not, would you mine sharing it. I want to share this idea with the consultants on my team. Thanks!

    I do both when I give the host a packet and also for any that I hand out away from a show. Show catalogs just have a lable on the back.

    I put a small (30 to a page) label with my info on the front. Then I put a larger label (10 to a page) with the PC logo and my info on the back, plus the recruiting call label near the photo of the kit. I started putting the logo on my labels when someone at a vendor event walked up to me, picked up a catalog, and said, "What company is this? I don't know what you're selling." Of course, she missed the logo on the front cover, my shirt, my apron, and the tablecloth, too. :rolleyes:

    Someone told me once to put on front, but everyone automatically looks on back. My old catalogs had outlet sticker on front and my info on back.

    I always look on the back for consultant info, too, because most companies have a spot there (and so they don't lose valuable front cover photo space). But it's surprising how many consultants don't label/stamp their catalogs. In 7 years, I've worked a lot of vendor/craft/bridal events and have been given catalogs by a lot of consultants. I'd be willing to bet that about 1/3 of them had no contact info on them at all, or just a handwritten first name and phone number (often without an area code, and I'm in an area that has 10-digit dialing on all calls).

    I totally agree! I'm at these (and hosting them) all the time, and I think "why don't these people want customers to have their contact info?!"

    But what I really love is when they dont want to give you a catalog or even a business card! I mean come on, I cant call you if I dont know your number!

    I don't understand why someone wouldn't label their catalog! I too have found many consultants just stamp their catalogs (and sometimes their stamp only has name and number). I think it is worth the extra to print labels, in my opinion it looks more professional.

    Me too! I don't even take them out of the package until I stamp them. There is no way anything leaves my office without my information on them.

    I stamp the back side of my catalogs.

    I never thought about putting host benefit labels on, and I will certainly start doing so. I do put my info label on both the front and back.

    On the SB's I give hosts, I make sure to put my label over where PC tells them to call.

    I actually happily slap mine on the front of the current catalogs in the middle of the food b/c I don't find it appetizing and it breaks it up a bit :). I like them on the front b/c I know immediately that it's labeled and haven't had a problem with people seeing it (at least not anyone that wouldn't have missed it on the back as well).

    I have a stamp on the back with my info, and on the front a label in color that says "check out my website" with the website address on it. I put the one on the front on at an angle so that it is more eye catching.

    I put a label on front & back. I listened to a cd that said put it on the front for sure & then another one said put it on the back also for those who are "blind" & don't see your label on the front. lol I put my vista labels that say Help Whip Cancer on them with all my info & then my regular PC info label on the back. I love your label Rae!

    Aww, shucks. Tweren't nothin'. Actually, I'm fairly certain that I creatively adapted the idea from someone else.
