The very first mail order catalog dates back to August, 1872. Aaron Montgomery Ward of Chicago, produced the first Montgomery Ward mail order catalog. The idea took off like a rocket, and eventually led to the printed and electronic catalogs we shop from today.

In these trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic, catalogs have really enabled people to sell and order their personal and professional products from the comfort and safety of their homes and businesses. From generators to groceries… if you can dream it, you can find it in a catalog… and have it delivered directly to you wherever you are in the world.

Now, our catalogs don’t date back to the late 1800s, but Zoltun does have vast experience in catalog design and production. In fact, our company was founded on producing industrial catalogs nearly 30 years ago.

Since then, we have diversified and expanded to include every kind of print and online design and marketing projects you can imagine… we can even turn your catalog into an electronic flipbook! Take a look at the Forney flipbook!

Just a side note… August 18 is also National Pinot Noir Day, so pour yourself a glass and peruse a good catalog or two… salute!
