  1. MILL NAME - Select a Mill Name or use PRIVATE LABEL for paper being sold without a mill name. Please contact us if you need us to add a need Mill Name.

  2. BRAND NAME - The form normally lets you select from previously defined brand names for any mill name. When you select a brand the normal type (ie sheets or rolls) will display (you may change the paper type). Click the Add Brand to re-display the form whereby you can define a brand, in which case you will be required to define the item's type, main and sub category.

  3. SIZE - You must define the sheet paper's size and grain, or the roll paper's roll width and diameter and the core's diameter, or the envelope's size.

    1. Number of Units - This will equal 1 if the unit is /lot and type is roll or envelopes (if sheet paper we ask for total sheets so we can calculate the /m price), the number of thousands if you select /m, or the number of hundreds of pounds if you select /cwt. Otherwise it is simply the number of rolls, sheets cartons or skids. When the units is more than 1, buyers can order any quantity between 1 and the total quantity.

      Pounds Per Unit - This is 100 if you select /cwt, and total pounds if you select /lot. Otherwise it is the average pounds per roll, sheet, carton or skid.
