More Catalog Follies

It’s finally happened. In today’s avalanche of catalogues, we got two of them from separate companies with the same picture on the cover:



Norm Thompson and The Territory Ahead look to be completely unrelated outfits. One is based in Santa Barbara, the other in Portland, Oregon. Neither of them sell Christmas lights for putting on trees, either.

There’s nothing wrong with using stock photos; stock photos make the world go ‘round. But having such a vague corporate image that you and a competitor send catalogs with the same image on the cover on the same day, well, that’s just sad.
