reducing indigestion: a healthier diet for business • Is bigger always better? • Does one size really fit all? • Are we truly getting more for our money?   ....Or,… is there another cost we forget to think  about?

Supersize

Rightsize

The way to rightsizing is through the "Squeeze Principle" 3


a healthier diet for business – cost savings What is the "Squeeze Principle"? • Paper can be 35% of the print cost! • Inefficient job layout creates      additional financial and environmental  costs (waste)

• Enter the “Squeeze Principle” which  emphasizes sheet optimization. Get  “every last drop” out of your sheet.

a healthier diet for business – layout & design

- Standard sheet size for comfortable bleeds and additional match colors - Layout Result: 23% unused portion of the sheet

6


a healthier diet for business – layout & design

- Smaller, standard sheet size with tighter print parameters. - Layout Result: 9% unused portion of the sheet

7


a healthier diet for business – layout & design

- Custom size sheet for printing to exact specifications - Layout Result: 5% unused portion of the sheet

a healthier diet for business - optimization Tools to Help Optimize Sheet Metrix by CGX: Automatic layout calculator (CGX) For any sheet size Custom Sheeting: Customize to Optimize on Non-standard sheet sizes 9


a healthier diet for business - customization Custom Sheeting Example: 28

Standard sheet size:        28x40  100#  @  1120 sq.in. (431M)

27

Customized to the right size:        27x30  100#  @  810 sq.in. (312M) Paper saved: 11” shaved = 28% smaller 30

40

Standard sheet size in Lbs:        50,000 sheets of 431M weigh 21,550 lbs. Rightsized sheet in Lbs:        50,000 sheets of 312M weigh 15,600 lbs. SAVINGS: At $62/cwt. this job saves         $3,989.00!

a healthier diet for business - optimization The industry has  trained you to do this:

But the opportunity for  optimization is this:

• Standard sheet sizes

• Custom sheet sizes

• Readily available –    same day/next day 

• Readily available (brings mill to    your doorstep)

• Custom sizes from mill    have some restrictions:    1 5,000 lbs minimum order   2 Minimum 5-day turn for custom   3 Additional freight charges   4 Additional transit time

• Custom sizes are less    restrictive:   1 No minimums   2 Delivered within 48 hours   3 No additional freight charges   4 No additional transit time

• Ideal if standard size fits job or      last minute order

• Ideal if customizing fits job and    quick turn allowed for sheeting

• Not ideal if there is excess waste    from standard sheet and time    permits opportunity to optimize

• Not ideal if volume so small it    outweighs cost savings from    standardizing

11


a healthier diet for business – revenue generation & sustainability What are the benefits of customizing to the right size? • Reduce waste–can reduce paper waste by over 30% • Reduce costs–buy less paper but get the same amount        of finished product • Stretch marketing dollars–buy only what you need • Increase production–reduce handling time, labor • Reduce environmental footprint–when paper is        better utilized, you make a positive impact on        landfill management and forest preservation • Competitive advantage–improve profitability;        promote sustainable messaging

call to action: path to competitive advantage

First, recognize the opportunity right sizing to a custom size offers.

1 3%

inch shaved =                                               saved!                         

13


call to action: supply chain engagement Second, talk it up! Get your partners in the supply chain to evaluate options  early:       • Can the job be engineered to fit a custom size?        • What paper products are available for custom          sheeting?       • Custom sheeting may add an extra day. The earlier in          the process you weigh the benefits and opt to go          custom, the more likely you are to include that day in          the overall schedule.       • Some jobs are too small to benefit from a custom          size. How does this job fit?       • Can the job be quoted using both standard and          custom options? 14


call to action: take aways Take-aways • Customize to optimize • 1 inch shaved = 3% saved • Open communication in your supply chain    early–ask your print rep, "Can my job be    engineered to a custom sheet?" • Market the reduction of your environmental    footprint

A custom fit makes perfect sense!
