Polar Papers Update
We have word that Arctic Polar Gloss and Premium Polar Satin are in transit and should be back in stock soon.
So what happened with this paper you ask? Its certainly unlike us to be out of a popular product long. A few forces came together to cause the shortage:
1) The mill where these papers are made shut down for maintenance in August. Like any large facility, it takes some time to bring those systems back online. That shut down slowed our pending order.
2) Demand. Since the Konica mill (a huge state of the art facility) shut down in late 2006, world demand for microporous papers has been shifted to the remaining mills. This causes a squeeze on inventory and shipping schedules.
What are we doing about it? Red River has already placed our next major order for Polar papers. We are doing everything possible to prevent shortages in the future.
Thank you for your patience.
