In September 2016, Kath launched her first coffee table book Make A Colorful Impression at Industriya Marikina restaurant in the Philippines. The 49-page book talks about her family's printing business, HS Grafik Print and how a husband-and-wife duo started their dream of owning and running a business together way back in 1983. The book also details the different paths the Eustaquio kids with roots springing from paper and ink.

The book was launched during Homer Eustaquio's 60th birthday party (#HomerAt60) last September 17, 2016. This was also when Kath officially launched PaperKat Books in Manila, a division under HS Grafik Print that focuses on self-published books.
