Paper.com Launches New Web Site To Service Paper Buyers
Press release from the issuing company
NEW CANAAN, Conn.--Nov. 13, 2003-- Paper.com, an innovator in the market for office paper, fine papers and specialty papers, announces a new Web site for paper buyers. The company, which launched the Web site in June 2003 after a year of research and development, has cultivated a customer base of commercial and instant printers, design and marketing firms, home office entrepreneurs and various small-to-medium businesses with systematic purchasing requirements.
"We have opened the market to buyers by increasing their choices, offering competitive pricing in a convenient, single source Web-portal," said John Engel, founder of Paper.com. "Previously, customers had limited access to specialty paper and hard-to-find items. When they did, it was in cumbersome paper catalogs from a few merchants, often not in their region. Today, our customers can explore over 8,000 products available internationally by search term, category, theme, brands, specialty products and even paper mill," he added.
How does Paper.com achieve all this? Paper.com specializes only in paper and paper-related products, unlike other vendors who sell mostly office products or printing. This enables Paper.com to work in volume that others can't match. The company has contracted to buy paper directly from independent paper merchants around the world who get the very best prices from the mills and passes on the savings to customers. "If we're not competitive, tell us and we'll find a new supplier. When the paper mills compete, we all win," noted Engel.
