Frequently Asked Questions:
Can we mix colors in one case of paper? Example: 5 reams of blue and 5 reams of gray
No, you cannot mix reams of colors in a case.
Can we have odd number of cases of paper? Example: 40 case of white and need 2 case of color or do we need to have a total of 80 cases so it makes a full pallet (40 on each pallet)?
The minimum is 40 cases to make a full pallet. For example, on White Copy Paper you may order 80 cases and 14 cases of color paper. This would make 2 pallets of white and 1 pallet with color paper.
What is the paper deadline?
The order deadline is June 16, 2021
Is there freight?
No, as long as you meet the 40 case minimum. If you need your shipment ASAP we will need to reach out to the paper vendor for a freight quote.
What is the latest you can ship to us?
Delivery Requested: Before June 30, 2021 or between July 1 and August 5, 2021. If you need delivery after this date please reach out and we will contact the paper vendor to see if it is possible and if there will be any extra charge.
Is Cover considered Card Stock?
Card Stock in our paper catalog is considered 65# Cover.
About the CPC Paper Program
CPC’s motto is Competitive, Compliant, Convenient.
Each Spring CPC conducts a competitive sealed bid for paper on your behalf to achieve the best pricing available. Conducting the sealed bid process in this way keeps your organization compliant with procurement law and nonprofit best practices. From that pricing we are able to create a paper catalog for both large and small quantity orders. Orders can be placed through our online marketplace Express. We built Express in order to ensure that your organization is able to shop online in a manner that is consistent with procurement law. We think that’s pretty convenient!
Please email or call with any questions!
