For supply catalogs Kitchen Krafts and Sweet Celebrations offer free catalogs. You can go on line to either place and ask for them. Both come out with catalogs seasonally and usually display on line as well. For party items with some items that you can use on cakes Party Express/Celebrations Express offers a free catalog. Good luck in your search. Hope this can give you a start.

You can also request free catalogs from Bakery Crafts and Decopac.

Are you looking for free supply catalogs? Or are you looking for ones that you can have customers look at to get ideas from?

For supply the above ones are the ones i was going to mention.

For the customers to look at... I would post on Freecycle or a similiar website what you are looking for. You just never know.

I like Modern Baking magazine. It's a free industry magazine that offer information about tips, trends, recipes, etc. It's not just for cakes but for all baking. If you're looking for something to dispay in your store (and make you look professional) this may be it. If you're looking for a handout for your customers, then this may not be what you had in mind.

I just read my Mailbox News from American Cake Decorating and they had this to say:
