US Paper Exchange – Need it and Got it

By Inkjet Insight / Published:

Last updated on October 8, 2021 – Updates include new paper requests as well as sources for available papers.

Editor’s Note: Thank you to Tony Sylvester of Interface Consulting for jumping on these requirements and engaging his sourcing network.

We have been reporting on paper shortages and rationing for some time, but we are hearing from our readers that supply chain challenges are worsening. Problems with severe rationing have escalated to the point where even scheduled, rationed shipments are being delayed or only partially delivered. In order to help printing companies seek new sources for stock and monetize any excess rolls in inventory, we are creating a free, confidential paper exchange to put buyers and sellers in touch.

  • If you are in need of paper, please provide the specs, volume and timing to Inkjet Insight, along with your contact information.
  • If you are a printer with excess paper or substrates of ANY type, please provide the stock details, regional location of the supply and your contact information
  • If you are a paper mill or distributor new to the North American market or looking to enter the US market, please get in touch about specs and regional availability.

Please submit information using our contact form, or email [email protected]. If you need help testing or profiling new papers, we can help with that as well. Having multiple grades tested and approved mitigates supply risk.

Below is a running list of current paper requests and we will add information on excess stock from as received.
