This article describes guidelines for submitting electronic catalog and product images for inclusion in the SAGE research tools.

NOTE:  THIS ARTICLE ONLY APPLIES IF YOU WOULD LIKE US TO ENTER YOUR CATALOG FOR YOU (A SERVICE WE PROVIDE TO THE INDUSTRY FOR FREE).  IF YOU ARE USING THE SAGE SUPPLIER CENTER TO UPDATE YOUR CATALOG YOURSELF, PLEASE VIEW Electronic image specifications for supplier catalogs INSTEAD OF THIS ARTICLE.


Solution:
 
SAGE accepts electronic catalog page images as well as electronic product images.  If you do not have electronic images, we also can create images from your paper catalog.   However, electronic images will provide the best quality. 

Important points to remember:

* Please make sure that your files strictly adhere to the specifications below.  Otherwise we will not be able to use them.

* Our system accepts full catalog page images as well as individual product images.  If you only have individual product images, we optionally recommend you also create a "catalog page image" by putting one or more product images on a page with white space around it. 


What files to submit:

Option 1

Submit 'SAGE ready' JPEG or PNG files. 

For complete specifications, please see Electronic image specifications for supplier catalogs

Option 2

Submit a PDF file containing the complete catalog with a page size of 8.5" x 11" at 300 ppi.  The embedded graphics in the pdf file my be in any bitmap format with very minimal or no compression.  The graphics should be true 300 ppi images, not up-converted from a lower resolution.  Text should be in vector format.



How to submit your files:

Option 1

Send your file(s) on CD (PC compatible format) along with 2 copies of your printed catalog (or printouts of the image pages and all pricing if you do not have a printed catalog) to:

SAGE
Attn: Information Services
16301 Quorum Drive Ste. 200A
Addison, TX 75001

Option 2

Upload your files to our FTP site.  Please carefully follow the instructions found here: Uploading Files to Our FTP Server
