Paper stock

Post by wdustin1 »

We are looking at way to get out cost down on certain jobs and have been looking at finding a cheaper alternative to semigloss paper. We run some 1-2 color jobs that go on a package and get thrown away so nothing decorative no special adhesive. We currently get our stock from Avery/Fasson it is a 60#/40# semi gloss paper stock, i believe we are currently paying around $0.27 per msi on this material. I was wondering what everybody else is using on these "everyday" type labels that may be cheaper, we looked at maybe 54# paper but the cost really isnt too much different. thanks!
