Obtaining and scanning catalogs can be an expensive and time-consuming endeavor. If you enjoy the site and would like to contribute to the efforts of WishbookWeb.com there are a few ways to do it.
1. Check out the forums, share your ideas, and contribute information, if you've got it. Right now, there's not much written about the hobby of catalog collecting, so we're trying to create a place to gather and share what we know.
2. Make a catalog donation. If you have a catalog you'd like to donate for scanning, get in touch with us and we'll be happy to accept it. Just drop us a line here, and we'll be happy to discuss how to proceed.
3. Scan your own catalog, and donate the digital scans to the site. We've got lots of tips on effective scanning that we've learned through trial-and-error, so please get in touch with us here, before you start.
Right now, the site is all about Christmas catalogs, but looking forward, we'd like to add all sorts of catalogs and circulars. At anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 pages, the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter catalogs are intimidating scanning projects, but eventually we'd like to add them, too. Do you have vintage sales circulars that are interesting? Other smaller vintage specialty catalogs? We'd love to see them, and eventually create a place on the site for them, as well. Have you got other ideas? Come to the forums and tell us about them.
