Price changes and new delivery method

The prices of paper and packaging materials are rising quickly. As the number of online orders increased due to COVID, the demand for cardboard also increased strongly, which has influenced the market.

Price changes in printing on the national news

On the 20th of September NOS reported that Christmas cards might become 25% more expensive due to the phenomenon called "pulp friction". Earlier, the book sector already sounded the alarm about their paper shortages resulting from the mass home delivery taking place. Large paper producers warned about price changes resulting from the persistent shortages. The same goes for cardboard packaging materials. Unfortunately, it is not only the paper that got more expensive but also ink and energy.
