Is Your Paper Converting Order Starting to Feel Like Groundhog Day?

Posted by Alan NeSmith on Feb 2, 2018, 8:00:00 AM

When placing regular orders for any number of business supplies week after week, or month after month, the process can become monotonous and it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. That certainly goes for ordering paper products too. It’s not surprising, considering that when businesses find a product that works, they may very well keep ordering the same thing over and over.

Oftentimes, the process of ordering paper can become mundane and routine. So, if you’re starting to feel like Phil Connors in the movie Groundhog Day, with your paper order stuck in a time loop, it’s important to understand that more diverse options exist. There are a variety of options available to meet your needs when you partner with a diverse and capable paper converter.

It's Groundhog day!

Giving your paper order a makeover

By stepping out of your box (pun intended!), you may just find that your current paper products could use a makeover, or that the product you’re ordering on autopilot isn’t actually the best paper solution for your business.

The first question you may want to ask is how well the product or products you’re currently ordering are working. If they’re not working as well as you’d like then you’ll want to begin looking into other options. Consider where you may be able to find different products available that would serve your needs better, or how you could switch up your order by trying the same or similar products but in different colors or sizes.

If it’s not just a matter of functionality, but simply a desire to diversify the products you’re using, you’ll need to consider what products you’d like to try and how they’ll work for the job at hand. For example, if you’re in the restaurant business and you’re using butcher paper, you might diversify with pink butcher paper, or another colored stock.

If you’re in an industrial business and require sturdier more durable paper, you may want to do some research to make sure you’re aware of all the industrial-grade paper products available that could meet your various needs, including linerboard, chipboard, or ultra-durable scrim paper.

You can also consider ways to change up the details of the order itself, perhaps by ordering in bulk and thereby changing the quantity or frequency of the delivery of your paper order.

Of course, it’s important to know what questions to ask before you alter your routine or make a new or different paper order. Check out these tips on the questions you need to ask before your next paper order.

Customization shakes things up

With any paper order, there are also options for customizing your products by adding your company logo or a marketing message. This can be a great, cost-effective way to give your products a fresh look and feel while increasing your company’s visibility.
