Ok, this is a really dumb question, but does anyone know if it is ok to use another business' catalog, let's say, another business Tuxedo catalog to show as a sample for customers to look at? Another way to put it is...can a business show another business' catalog, to show that the business can make the competitors items and merchandise at a much cheaper price? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

This sounds unethical for one thing.

Also, how would doing this affect your credibility and image with your customers? IMHO it screams "fly by night" and that's bad for business.

If you want photos of your products, take your own products to a photographer and have pictures taken.

But don't forget... words sell, pictures don't.
