Business is picking up, but the availability of paper stocks has become more limited and unpredictable, which in turn has caused paper prices to increase. Supply chain issues have been making headlines across various manufacturing segments, and the printing industry is no exception. The availability of paper stocks has become steadily more challenging as raw material costs rise, mills enact allocations and price increases, and labor shortages continue.
Although paper supply chain issues are a systemic concern, there are steps printing companies can take to address the limitations head-on.
In this session, our experts will discuss:
- The reasons for the printing paper supply shortages and potential solutions to aid in market stabilization.
- How these concerns affect printing companies and their customers, what they can do in response, and what strategies they should implement to mitigate further challenges.
- What print providers can expect in the future of the paper supply chain.
Proper planning and implementation of key strategies can alleviate some of these challenges, freeing up presses to focus less on substrate material acquisition and more on business growth and strategy.
