Stupid question I'm sure. What is the best way to get books of paper samples?
Will local printers hand those books out or is there a way to request that stuff at no cost?
Any insight would be great thanks!
we use xpedx they send us free stuff all the time
just send a request on mohawks site, they'll send you a box of sample books - or at least a few years ago, they were free.
xpedex is a good source for paper books.
You can call the mills/manufactuers directly and request sample books. They are usually pretty generous with these. (ie: neenah, mohawk, etc).
It's always good to get cozy with your local paper sources too. They can (and should provide) sample books as well as be able to supply you with sheets of any samples you may request. I have found that sometimes the sales associates are not the best to talk to and have bypassed them completely and gotten the stock room guy.
Your printer generally knows the best type of paper to run for the job, but will not necessarily carry samples of things you're looking for.
I usually deal with sales reps for printers and they're more than happy to give me books of samples for free
Call the paper mills > or their sales rep. They send you the paper you want and often binded or folded like you need.
In montreal It's JBR (Buntin Reid in the states), turgeon and unisource.
most local printers have tons of paper samples, they will handle you those for free if you are a customer
Hey Rodzilla, contact Commerce Paper and Canon Paper in Toledo. They're two of the bigger paper houses in NW Ohio
