Why Castelli? It’s In The Details.
There’s no shortage of planners, journals and coordinating desk accessories in the marketplace. So why choose Castelli? It’s one thing to say you’re better than the competition. It’s another to prove it. The Castelli difference is in the details. It’s what makes us unmistakable.
Castelli’s team of designers scour the runways from Paris to Milan, following fashion’s colors, textures and styles and incorporating them into the collection you see today—sophisticated and on-trend. With designs originating in Europe, Castelli is first-to-market when introducing its cutting-edge products to the U.S. promotional products industry.
• Contemporary Materials
Polyurethane materials give a high-grade leather look without the surface flaws—or high price tag—of real leather. Additionally, imprint quality is higher on polyurethane than on leather, and the surface and dye lots are consistent from year to year, so you can sell continuity programs with confidence.
• Luxurious Covers
Padded covers have a more luxurious feel than their traditional counterparts. Using three-piece cover construction—a foundation of heavy cardboard with a foam padding interior and polyurethane exterior cover—Castelli products have a higher perceived value, which you can use, in turn, to distinguish yourself from the competition.
• Brilliant Paper
All products use the highest-grade, ultra-white eucalyptus paper that has received the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification, which indicates the wood was derived from forests that are managed correctly and responsibly according to rigorous environmental, social and economic standards.
• Superior print registration
The interior pages feature an exclusive blue and grey color scheme, which has been tested to be easiest on the eyes. Additionally, the fonts and spacing have been chosen with care to produce the greatest readability.
• Case Binding
To allow books to lie flat when opened, many Castelli products use the case-binding system, where the printed signatures are sewn straight down the middle, folded into slim booklets and then glued together into the spine of a cover. Sewn binding is also longer lasting, more durable and more aesthetically pleasing than stapled pieces.
• Skived Edges
Castelli skives the edges of each product through a process where a small amount of cover material is cut before folding it around the corners. This results in much smoother and sleeker corners and eliminates the need for metal corners—unless they provide a desired decorative effect.
FLEXIBILITY IN CUSTOMIZATION
While Castelli planners, journals and notebooks make ideal gifts with just the addition of your client’s logo, the beauty of the collection is in the vast customization options. You aren’t limited to stock designs in inventory. In fact, there is decoration flexibility in every aspect of the planner so you can become the architect and build the exact piece to meet the unique requirements of your client.
