Big-Mergers, the Cost of Paper and Your Next Print Job

Is your head spinning watching the ongoing mergers and acquisitions in the paper industry? If so, you’re not alone. Because of the consolidation in the industry paper prices have been stable, but seasonal discounts we are used to seeing have deteriorated.

Gannett, Action Printings parent company, had its own taste of merges and acquisitions. With the acquisition of “The Record” of Bergen County, and many others, Gannett has solidified itself as the largest paper buyer in the country. With this being said, we can utilize our proximity to paper mills and purchasing power to pass on both paper and postage savings to our customers.

Since paper accounts for around 30% of the total costs of a given job we make it our mission to keep an eye on the market to prepare for price increases and supply chain disruptions. Many companies will ask you to monitor your own paper costs, but we take it upon ourselves to utilize not only our purchasing power and proximity to paper mills, but our industry expertise to deliver you the lowest paper costs possible.

If you don’t already have your own paper management program in place our industry expertise can help put your paper prices at ease with three easy steps.
