This fall–holiday catalog by Cypress is a beautiful handmade catalog featuring a variety of layouts. Every product includes its own description and barcode.

Christmas Over Your Plants
Jackson & Perkins’ catalog is focused on plants. The whole document is very clear and well structured and perfectly transmits the Christmas spirit. The catalog is mostly composed of in-context images, but sometimes there are cut-out images, too. There is no table of contents or chapter separators, but this doesn’t affect the readability of the document.
A Sober Christmas Catalog
Yankee Candle’s fall catalog is a quite sober document, considering that it contains Christmas products. In fact, they’re mixed in with fall products, which helps the document to maintain a low profile. The catalogue includes a mix of in-context pictures that typically bring several products together. Every product has its own number, which make it easy to identify specific objects.
Basic Christmas Catalog
Napco’s catalog is a 300+-page handmade document with a basic layout. Sometimes the products are displayed in a quite casual way, but they’re still accompanied by all relevant information. There are no chapter separators, but the beginning of the document has a table of contents, and it ends with an index based on the products’ SKU codes.
Colorful Christmas Catalog
This is a colorful Christmas decoration catalog by Temple Display. The beginning of the document features a basic table of contents, but no chapter separators are used.
