White Paper: The Paper Dilemma -- Exploring Paper Management Options

The following is a white paper from the Banta Corp.

Similar to other types of manufacturing, the process efficiency, and ultimately the cost of production, depend directly on consistently high-quality raw materials. Papermaking, printing and binding can be viewed as different steps in the process of manufacturing a printed product. To achieve maximum efficiency at a minimum cost, each step must be synchronized and in alignment with the overall process.
