Start Printing with Foote Printing Today Before Paper Prices Rise Again

If your business needs high volume printing, you might not ever think of the price of paperbut you should. Of course, inflation is always a factor, but the industry has also eliminated many paper mills due to decreased U.S. demand. Why are Paper Costs Rising? Currently, foreign demand for paper is competing with U.S. businesses. The devastating Hurricanes Irma and Harvey took a major toll on the U.S. economy and paper mill infrastructure. Nearly 20 major U.S. pulp and paper mills were shut down after these storms. Now that fewer mills exist, paper pulp costs are rising. In fact, wood pulp prices are forecasted to increase by approximately five percent through the end of 2019. Paper prices have already increased in 2018, and more rising prices are expected. What Can I do? For all these reasons, if you have a large printing job to do, it will be less expensive to do it sooner rather than later. At Foote Printing, we help our customers find the most effective ways to use their marketing
