Other than trees, most people do not understand the process of paper and how it gets to the printer (printers do not make the paper). Suprisingly, the paper industry is not much different than many other businesses, where there is a manufacturer, distributor and reseller.

Like any other business, the process begins with the paper manufacturers, which converts pulp into paper.

The paper manufacturers sell to distributors called paper merchants. Paper merchants basically warehouse different types of paper from different paper manufacturers.

Then the printers buy their materials from the merchants.
