Making great quality products for the right price is only half the battle in the fashion industry. Equally important is getting the word out about those products. Customers need to know what your business is offering and at what prices before they can put in their orders. Additionally, teams need to have information about their products in order to run their business effectively. ApparelMagic not only holds all of your product information for your team’s use, but also creates its own catalogs with just a couple of clicks. These reports can be used to either share with customers as catalogs of goods, or within a company so cross-functional teams such as designers, merchandisers, fit technicians, and sourcing agents can stay abreast of product ranges. Using ApparelMagic’s intuitive sourcing, creating catalogs is a snap.
After viewing the tutorial, use the sorting and searching skills you’ve learned to print your own catalog that includes products you’ve developed in previous lessons.

First, we’ll print a Product Catalog. This can be used to generate a simple catalog of items that you can send to customers.Click Lookbook/Product Catalog.
You may create a Product Catalog by filtering items using any or several of the categories.For example, you could use the Collection filter to show only Women’s, and the Category filter to show only Blouses.For this example, we’ll filter by season.
We’ll create a catalog for Winter 2018. The resulting catalog will show all products contained in that season.
When you have defined your filter, click Continue.
For each item, the catalog will show its main image, style number, description, and price. This catalog is great for giving an overview of all of the styles you’re currently offering.
You may use the buttons at the bottom of the screen to print, share, or save to your computer.
Next, click Products to print a second type of catalog.
Click Product Colorway Catalog to create a catalog that includes color and size information.
