The 2018 Diamond Certified Directory: The Phones Are Ringing!

Posted on May 01, 2018 by Jennifer Chan

Since the beginning of April, when the 2018 Diamond Certified Directory started landing in Bay Area mailboxes, our receptionist, Ian Leary, has been rather busy. “Call volume has been 700 to 800 percent higher than normal,” he says, in between answering the phone. “The most common question I get is, ‘Where’s my directory?’ Callers say, ‘I get it every year and I really need a new one’ or ‘I depend on my Diamond Certified Directory.’”

The fact that many callers haven’t received directories is no surprise. The 800,000 directories we send to Bay Area homes and businesses only cover about 30 percent of Bay Area households. Read more

The 2018 Diamond Certified Directory: Behind the Scenes

Posted on March 30, 2018 by Jennifer Chan

In mid-March, our design team flew to Las Vegas to oversee the production of the 2018 Diamond Certified Directory. “Press check” takes place while the directory is actually being printed on the big publishing machines at Creel Printing. During press check, our team stays up all night (the presses run 24/7!) and checks to make sure everything looks exactly as it’s supposed to. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look. (We’ve already started mailing 840,000 copies of the Diamond Certified Directory to consumers throughout the Bay Area. You can order one by signing up to become a Diamond Certified Preferred Consumer here—it’s free!)
