August 2022 Update--
Another paper price increase:

August 1, 2022

Dear Valued Partner,

All major domestic paper mills have recently announced another price increase in the third quarter of 2022. Effective with shipments on or after September 1, 2022, we will be increasing pricing on all product categories 5%. Supply remains tight as mill allocations have continued over the last several months.

July 2022 Update--

After the paper mill price hikes in Jan '21, Jan '22 and now July '22 we are forced to raise our blank stock, letter size check prices for the first time since 2015.

June 2022 Update--

Paper mills are not producing enough envelope paper to keep up with demand. Expect much longer lead times on any custom envelopes that you order.

March 18,2022 Update--

The paper mills have announced another price increase on check paper. Since the mills are very energy intensive, they feel they have to raise again to keep up with their costs.

Specialty Graphics will be forced to raise our check prices in the coming weeks. We did not increase our prices when the paper mills increased prices 6% on January 1, 2022 but this increase will require 10 to 15% prices increases on checks.

Staffing shortages have created some deadlines being missed in check production. Be sure to place your orders in plenty of time.

FEBRUARY 2022 Update--

Supply chain issues are persisting. We are getting most of our checks shipped on schedule.

Envelopes are where issues are popping up. The paper mills cannot get enough paper produced and they are raising prices several times a year. The November 2021 and January 2022 paper mill increases raised envelope paper prices by 16%.

Press times are booked solid for envelopes. Some lead times are up to 5 months out.

Specialty Graphics is in good shape since our envelopes are stocked in our warehouse before they to ship to you. Currently there is only one envelope on back order that we are waiting on.

We are attempting to stay ahead of these unprecedented production lead times to stay fully stocked. Be sure to order your supplies early to avoid any delays.

SPECIAL NOTE: FedEx is not always guaranteeing that delivery dates will be met and they are not refunding fees on any missed delivery dates. This is on all Overnight, Second Day Air and Ground shipments.

All Freight/Shipping companies are under sever pressure.

From coast to coast our entire nation is experiencing unprecedented shortages of goods, materials and labor. Multiple news outlets have been reporting staggering figures pertaining to delays in the U.S. supply and distribution chain which are causing severe disruptions around every corner including:

a. Ships waiting at sea to unload their containers creates a wait time and uncertain delivery schedule of parts and supplies.
b. The "weakest link" in the supply chain is an alarming shortage of truck drivers. This is impacting UPS and FedEx.
c. Paper Mills have struggled to come back online - and demand has been very high coming out of COVID.

Rest assured that Specialty Graphics, Inc. is confident that we are staying ahead of paper supply issues. Contracts with the paper mill has kept our check paper in supply. Envelope production is experiencing longer lead times but we are making every attempt to keep our warehouse well stocked for immediate shipments to you.

Please watch your inventories to keep from getting too low on your supplies.
