Entrenue Marks 25th Anniversary with Unique Calendar/Catalog

PHOENIX—Entrnue is celebrating its 25th anniversary in business with a special 2019 calendar/catalog hybrid.

The clever—and useful—tool incorporates the boutique distributor’s colorful history with some of the company’s top-selling products. The artful project offers customers a trip down memory lane with monthly homages to popular adult brands masterfully mixed with some of the most memorable moments of 1994, the year Entrenue was founded.

As unique as it is handy, Entrenue’s 2019 calendar offers a fun flashback to a time before adult products were even a twinkle in the distributor’s eye. Founded in October 1994, Entrenue was primarily a book distributor and carried a bookshelf’s worth of product until it began incorporating adult products into its growing catalog. Self-proclaimed CEO and owner Joe Casella bought the company in 2006 and, in just a few years, Entrenue expanded into a 12,500-square-foot warehouse. Soon the boutique distributor was setting precedents by being the first to carry what eventually became some of the industry’s most notable and famous brands.

“Our catalog went from 80 to 450 pages by the time we stopped doing print catalogs entirely, and now we’re finding fun and creative ways to showcase our offerings while also giving customers something to enjoy month to month,” Casella said. “Our 2019 calendar was especially fun to put together because we got to highlight some of 1994’s most memorable moments while also poking a little fun at ourselves. Be sure to check out the photo lineup in the back of the calendar – each features an Entrenue staff member circa 1994. Bet you can’t guess who’s who!”

More than just a pretty face, Entrenue’s 2019 calendar is packed with practical features, including a brand index that thoughtfully highlights which are exclusives, woman-owned, made in the USA, and carry organic products. Customers also will appreciate a timeline of notable moments in Entrenue’s 25 years, including 2003 when the company introduced LELO to the adult market and 2008 when Entrenue partnered with We-Vibe and sent them their very first PO.

“Twenty-five years is a major milestone and the Entrenue team is excited to celebrate with our loyal customers—because without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today!” Senior Account Executive and Buyer Kim Maty said.

“Our 2018 calendar/catalog hybrid was a hit with customers and even garnered three mainstream marketing and design awards,” Entrenue Director of Sales and Marketing Lily Wang said. “We’ll be submitting our calendar into this year’s awards circuit, too, and we can’t wait to hear what our network thinks.”
