Job Lot

Job Lot, Stock Lot, and Odd Lot Paperboard

Does your company use paperboard for converting, printing, or packaging?  Whether you call it job lot, stock lot, odd lot, or seconds; chances are good that we have what you need in stock for your urgent requirements, small runs, or cost-sensitive jobs that might prohibit placing mill orders. The Paper Tigers also has the ability to include prime material, when the job calls for it.

Job lot paperboard sold in the secondary market is not guaranteed to be free of manufacturing defects and is usually not guaranteed by the producing mills.  Accordingly, it is typically priced at least 10% below primary market pricing levels.  Our product is good, printable quality, but may not be suitable for the most critical or demanding jobs.  If you are a new customer, or if you are not sure whether to use job lot product for a particular purpose, please request a sample prior to placing an order.
