Paper Lead times
You are possibly aware that paper lead times are causing some issues, along with fluctuating costs which have increased by over 20% in the last 12 months.
There is currently no sign of this issue going away anytime soon and it is having a wide impact to all in the print and packaging industry.
The best advice is to plan ahead where you can. Let your print partner know the specification and volume you are looking to do with as much notice as possible.
