Paperlinx

In the Business News this week.

When Paperlinx closed its doors on the 1st of April 2015 the print industry was shock to its core. Rising from the Ash's though this week saw 2 of the account directors Paperlinx web division announced a new partnership with Feldmuehel and have become exclusive agents for Exceo Gloss and Silk double coated woodfree grade in reels and sheets. The paper is FSC certified and available in weights ranging from 90gsm to 400gsm.

Helping filling the gap Paper2print will also be stocking Feldmuehle’s Media Card single- and double-sided board range which competes with Trucard so suitable for the greeting card industry and we are sure will be welcome news to many in that industry. 

Stock should be here in the UK from June and we are sure they will go from strength to strength. 

Paper2print's website is not yet up and running but the new partners hope it will be live before the end of May. in the meantime the can be contacted via twitter @paper2print.

Their new offices will be based in Wollaston, just outside Northampton so are in a good position in the heart of the country to supply most of the UK. 

Here at beanprint we have not tested the Media card yet but once Paper2print is up and running we will trial some of the 400gsm for our heavy weight business card range. It will be nice to have alternatives as finding stock that is suitable with our press's is difficult as many digital printers find. Its very much a goldilocks type of product, some cards despite their weight can be too flimsy or too stiff, Although customers want really stiff business cards often the card will not go around the rollers correctly and cause printing errors or jams. Lets hope this new card (to beanprint) is suitable. We also love the fact that its FSC so comes from renewable sources which something else many of our customers demand.
