/  Thermal paper market update

To our valued customers,

Due to unexpected and extraordinary conditions in the global thermal paper market, POSPaper.com is writing to inform our loyal customers with important information.

In late 2017 a chemical manufacturing plant was shut down without notice. This manufacturing plant produced a vital component chemical used in making the coating for thermal paper and produced this chemical for thermal paper coating companies around the world. This plant has been forced to close temporarily as a result of environmental concerns. This closure combined with an already increased demand from a thermal price increase earlier this year coupled with rising pulp prices has the supply chain for thermal paper strained worldwide.

POSPaper.comís highest priority is ensuring adequate supply for our existing customers. We are working in unison with the thermal paper mills to secure a suitable thermal paper supply. Our primary concern is that of our valued customers, and to your continued business.

As a result, POSPaper.com is adjusting prices based on market increases. Additionally, as the situation continues to develop, we may be subject to further increases from the mills and may need to adjust prices accordingly. We are optimistic the market will stabilize in the near future, and prices will return to satisfactory levels for all.

Sincerely,

The POSPaper.com Team
