As you may have already heard, due to the virus situation and the increase in e-commerce orders (Amazon, etc.) there is an ongoing shortage of paper used in the manufacture of our cartons. In addition, the carton vendors are experiencing issues with Covid related interruptions, which has resulted in lead times being prolonged across the board.
These situations have already caused an increase in our corrugated costs which will likely result in some type of increase in corrugate in the coming months. There will be another notification sent once the new prices are finalized.
Moving forward, we ask that you allow as much lead time as possible when placing your orders; a minimum of 6-8 weeks should be fine for now.
We do appreciate your business and hope you understand our situation with the ongoing worldwide epidemic and hope that you and your families are staying safe.
