Industry Update: Thermal Paper Pricing & Availability

The thermal paper industry has been affected by the closure of a Chinese chemical plant due to environmental impact.

This plant is the largest producer of a chemical dye used in thermal paper coating, and has reduced output and closed mills worldwide. The shutdown is expected to last at least three to six months. As a result, thermal paper availability and pricing has been affected throughout the paper industry.

While doing our best to keep the price increase minimal, we are announcing a $10 per case price increase, starting on December 29th 2017.

We encourage you to immediately evaluate your paper needs. It is safe to assume that thermal paper has a conservative shelf life of approximately one year.
