Paper converters are the main source for products like boxes, envelopes bags and containers. They are the factories that host the fabrication process for these paper products, from breaking the material down into pulp, to cutting and forming the paper into new shapes. Mills require specialty machines for this entire process. They need machines that print, slit, cut, glue and crease. For the final touches to the paper products, they also need machines that perforate, bind, press, fold and sheet the paper tubes, towels, cups and containers. Mills solely based on producing paper made from vegetable fibers and wood pulp date all the way back to 1390, where the first permanent water-based mill was established in the Alps. From here, these mills transformed into the print companies, tissue and carton makers, and product fabricators that we know today. Now, we can fabricate all styles of products from thanks to the advances both in machines like hole punchers, and the machines that break down the composition of the paper material. As converters have gained to ability for increased output, they have also taken on the different products, like creating an entire line of paper plates, bowels, cups and napkins.

In these cases, the converters usually offer the company they are working with the benefit of wholesale pricing to keep the retail prices manageable. Party companies can find these options by checking in the the paper company or looking up options on the converter's website.

They can also work with companies that offer folding, finishing, gluing, various sheeting products, and laminate services.
