Paper brokers offer their customers consistently low, stabilized pricing – even as the industries largest suppliers raise their prices.
Suppliers typically pass the cost of chemicals and paper production on to the customer in the form of annual increased fees. Small to medium-sized printers may not always realize they are taking the hit for this. They also may not realize they have other options when it comes to supply purchases.
Paper brokers such as Westminster offer an alternative when it comes to securing your product at an affordable price. While a 4-8 percent price increase may not seem like a significant amount, over time and across repeat purchases, it can have a large impact. These incremental differences in paper pricing make it similar to purchasing gasoline for your car. A hypothetical .10 cent difference may not have a significant increase for a single gallon, but it will make a larger difference as you fill your tank.
Some printers may buy millions of square inches of paper over the course of a year, having paper delivered by the truckload. These increases could have an annual impact ranging between hundreds of dollars and tens of thousands, depending on the size of the orders over time.
Another aspect of the purchasing process to consider is freight costs. When you purchase through a quality broker, they should cover your freight costs. Buying from a paper broker gives you the same benefit that you would have by making an Amazon Prime purchase – the cost to get the product to your doorstep does not fall back on you.
