As nice as it is to have instant gratification of a online catalog I find I still prefer something I can put my hands on and take to work, look at in the car while waiting for the wife or at Tim Horton's with my coffee and bagel. I like to keep old ones for reference as well so I can look back at old or maybe discontinued products for specs or pics.

What say the Hord, virtual or fiber catalogs?

Print. I can look at it in my car, or where ever I want. Not so with the web site.

They are all over Western NY. One of the fastest growing franchises in the state.

I prefer a print catalog.

I like both.

With catalogs like MSC and Grainger being both 2000+ pages, it's nice to have a physical catalog to deal with.

Though the website is nice, when you get 100+ hits against what you are looking for, it becomes time consuming to find that one part you need, hence why a catalog is really really nice to have.

I can't read a web catalog while I'm on the john. Print most definitely.

Print for the bathroom reading and online for the actual ordering

Yup.

Well both I guess,

I hate using the brownell's website. thier search function gives you garbage with what you're looking for. The paper one is too handy, then order on line!

Both.

Print is easier to browse through. But you can pack a jillion catalogs on your laptop to look through.

Print is still easier to find things in, especially if it isn't well organized. A poorly organized on-line catalog is a disaster.

I've got a couple of model railroad sites that are a few per cent cheaper than others on-line, but the aggravation of using their sites is beyond coping with.

Both.

I'll look in the print, then browse online and purchase.

Though at work we have to have print for some things then phone order. Then again somethings are online only....

so its both with benefits to each side.
