Manufacturers globally, continue to raise their prices on papers and boards purchased by Spicers and other distributors. Spicers will be announcing a forthcoming increase on all products within its commercial print portfolio.

“It has always been Spicers policy to mitigate the severity of any price rise where possible, however a significant number of paper mills have now implemented more than one increase over the past 6 months, and we are also keeping an eye on movements into the new year” says David Martin, CEO of Spicers. “We truly appreciate our customers’ ongoing support”.

The new pricing will become effective as of Thursday 1st February 2018. The increase will see coated, uncoated, digital and carbonless grades increase by 8% while  all other grades will increase by 6%.

The company said that implementing price increases is not taken lightly and it has advised customers ahead of this announcement, to give as much notice as possible.
