Behind The Scenes Of Our New Diamond Tooling Catalogue - The Diamond Book
Here at Stonegate, the UK’s most trusted provider of specialist products and knowledge to stone fabricators, it’s important that our catalogue is the industries’ go-to source for the high-quality products and technical advice they need to get the most out of their tools.
Our new catalogue, The Diamond Book - Edition 17, is bigger and better than ever and we enlisted the help of a brand new creative agency and design team to make sure that it coincided perfectly with our new brand redesign – you can read more about the Stonegate 2017 brand refresh here.
Stonegate has lead the market for specialist tooling and consumables for the stone and composite industries since 1985, and, since then we have been committed in every sense to offer our technical expertise and value-adding service to our loyal customer base which continues to this day and underpins everything we do.
The Diamond Book, Edition 17 features our most up-to-date range of high-quality, innovative products which are stocked solely for the stone and composite industries – our focus is to only stock the products necessary to enable our customers to succeed. We have an even greater range of Stone CNC Tooling, Bridge Saw Blades, Polishing Products, Power Tools and Lifting & Handling Equipment meaning this new catalogue is our biggest and best yet.
The new catalogue was also the perfect platform to really take off with our partnership with Seam-It Adhesives, we exclusively supply Seam-It in the UK and we’ve been excited to shout that it’s been approved by Cosentino & TheSize so is one of a very small number of products available in the industry which is specifically for use with DEKTON & Neolith.
As this new catalogue is our first with new marketing & design partners, we wanted to make it more special for our customers which is why for the first time we’ve brought you an exclusive behind the scenes gallery so you can get a sneak peek at the hard work that goes into making our catalogue so special!
Work on our Edition 17 started last year in 2016, we were thinking about our brand and conversations were happening about potentially rebranding; taking the opportunity to make a new, amazing catalogue got our marketing department very excited!
After deciding it was right to press on with a new Edition 17, we got straight to work and, on a cold January morning in 2017 we started to refresh our product photography and reshoot the range. You’ll notice that there’s also some incredible workshop pictures in there too, a couple of local fabricators and loyal customers let us take over their sites and capture their teams in action! It was the first time Richard, our photographer, had never been to a stone fabricator’s workshop before so he was really excited to explore this new world!
Watch Richard get to grips with some of our great products!

The next few weeks were hard work indeed to get everything in place and ready for launch, our technical and sales teams were crucial in making sure that this new catalogue had all the technical information our customers would need in their workshops.
