Our New Design

The ComponentSource Paper Catalog has an all new design and format. The new catalog is approximately iPad Mini landscape format in size, which offers a smoother transition to on-screen viewing on monitors and tablets. We have invested in a much higher quality paper throughout, along with perfect binding to give the new catalog a premium feel. We are using larger type with a clearer typeface to improve readability.

Product Pages and Adverts

Enterprise Partners and Corporate Partners now benefit from their advert pages appearing facing their product pages. Product pages now include the brand logo and a stripe of the brand color, to tie in with the product Web pages. To bridge the gap between the printed page and the Web, every product page now features a QR code to take readers directly to the relevant product page on our Web site. Product pages have an enhanced focus on business function, with three highlighted business function to illustrate and describe the product's core functional areas. This content will also be used to promote your product in targeted Web adverts for the product on our Web site:
