Press release from the issuing company

WASHINGTON - The American Forest & Paper Association released its October 2012 Printing-Writing Paper Report on Nov. 21.

According to the report, total printing-writing paper shipments decreased 2 percent in October compared to October 2011, primarily driven by declines in uncoated mechanical shipments.

Additional key findings include:

  • October shipments of coated free sheet papers increased year-over-year for the fifth time in the past twelve months, reaching the highest level since September 2010.
  • Shipments of uncoated free sheet paper in October increased 2 percent over the same period in 2011, with mill inventories at the lowest level since July 1995.
  • October uncoated mechanical paper shipments decreased 23 percent compared to October 2011, with YTD shipments down 16 percent relative to the previous year.
