Paper and Plates from Printers for Printers

05.05.2023, Radebeul (Germany)

With up to 50% lower purchase prices and unlimited availability of high-quality paper and first-class printing plates, Unitedprint enables printers from all over Europe to access their most important materials in line with the market and competition.


While European paper and plate manufacturers are reporting record profits, printers are facing substantial material shortages combined with huge price increases for their key raw materials paper and plates. As a result, their performance is severely constrained by significantly higher sourcing requirements, reduced product range and severe distortions in both purchasing and selling prices. With all the associated organisational complications and, not least, a stressful situation towards their customers. And all this at a time when competition between digital and haptic communication has never been greater.

As a “first mover” and a European market leader in the online printing industry, Unitedprint offers a way out of this avoidable development. With its new service, Unitedprint now offers printing companies attractive access to high-quality papers and printing plates. The offer includes coated and uncoated paper in sheet and roll form as well as high-quality printing plates. Printers benefit from purchase prices that are up to 50% below the current market price level.

Unitedprint thus decouples the increasing dependency of the European printing industry on only a few European manufacturers and traders with their well-known market power and in this way ensures unrestricted and fairly priced access to materials for paper and plates for printing companies.

All papers offered by Unitedprint are 100% PEFC certified and suitable for digital and offset printing. In addition, all printing plates offered ensure simple, stable and environmentally friendly production. With all papers and plates being sold, Unitedprint guarantees absolutely professional and proven material quality as well as 100% reliable delivery to printers. Interested printers can now request samples and carry out completely uncomplicated material tests without any obligations. Qualified contact persons at Unitedprint and many reference customers are available to all interested printers at any time for all questions and requests. Interested parties can contact Unitedprint immediately via the online form consumables


“With our new ‘Paper and Plates from Printers for Printers’ service, we offer printers a unique opportunity to source high-quality paper and printing plates under extremely favourable conditions. Procurement structures for paper and plates that have been known to all market participants for a long time – and which, due to a lack of alternatives, are only tolerated by necessity – are increasingly being perceived by many printers as an extremely burdensome and existentially limiting factor for their business development. Our new service offers an attractive alternative for printers to make themselves less dependent on these critical developments and improve their competitiveness significantly.”
