  • Wide format papers
  • A variety of paper sizes commonly used and specialist papers for commercial printing
  • A variety of paper sizes commonly used in office environments including A4 and A3 sizes
  • A variety of FSC and PEFC certified papers

This framework was set up to support the increasing need to make savings. We aim to aggregate customer spend on a wide variety of different papers to achieve economies of scale and cost benefits for all users of the framework. These cost benefits are passed directly back to you in the form of competitive price lists.

The aim of this framework is for suppliers to offer good value papers and to work with you in a proactive manner to drive cost savings. They will use their expertise to offer guidance on all aspects of your specifications and suggest alternatives that could be more cost effective. For example:

  • Non-branded alternative papers that meet the same or similar specification as branded options
  • Lower GSM papers based on the use of the final printed item
  • Bulked out papers based on the use of the final printed item
  • Order frequency optimisation to reduce costs

The suppliers are required to work with you to drive further savings as part of this framework. They will provide you with quarterly management information at your request and at no additional cost.
