The Panel Beater Directory is not yellow nor white

When people read or hear the word Directory, they immediately think of an online telephone book, with telephone numbers, address detail, and perhaps an e-mail contact. As we have the word Directory in our name, we get confused with these other directories such as The White Pages, The Yellow Pages, and other Directories.
