Why SupplyLogic?Today, less than 20% of print and marketing communications supply chains are fully optimized.
A well-managed supply chain unifies your brand experience, reduces supplier risk, and helps you get to market faster. Yet today, less than 20% of companies have print and marketing supply chains that are fully optimized.
The print and marketing communications supply chain is often a complex and fragmented environment that can include dozens of suppliers, multiple software platforms, agencies, and partners. Optimizing these categories at the production and execution levels is our core business, and when you partner with SupplyLogic, you can refocus your valued resources on the strategic activities that matter most.
For over a decade we’ve been optimizing print and marketing communications supply chains for the largest and most complex brands in the world.
Our Boutique approach enables us to focus exclusively on our clients - our vision is to be the best, not the biggest in our sector. When a complex brand wants these categories optimized, we strive to become the “only choice”. Being the Gold Standard in this complex transformative process requires extreme focus and a true understanding of our client’s culture and strategic vision.

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
How do you determine if my print and marketing communications supply chain is optimized?
SupplyLogic will perform, at no cost, an initial assessment of your supply chain. Upon completion, we will deliver a detailed business case that outlines findings, recommendations and provides a future state solution aligned with your objectives.
How much time is required from my team to complete an engagement with SupplyLogic?
Our assessment process typically takes four to six weeks and only requires access to data and key stakeholders. We understand your time is valuable. Our process has been designed to avoid any disruption to your day-to-day operations.
What categories do you manage?
We manage all components of the print, marketing communications, and branded merchandise supply chain. This includes categories such as commercial print, direct mail, financial print, statements and confirms, point-of-sale signage, forms, labels, envelopes, packaging, apparel, and promotional items.
In addition to managing the product sourcing process, we provide warehousing, fulfillment and logistics services, and a best in class e-commerce storefront platform that eliminates the risk of using supplier provided ordering portals.
Do I need to outsource my entire supply chain to you?
We enter into three to five strategic outsourcing partnerships each year with companies that spend in excess of $10 Million annually in these categories. Our experience shows that when we manage the entire supply chain, our customers achieve better results and are able to refocus resources on core activities.
Why should I outsource my print and marketing communications supply chain, and why choose SupplyLogic?
We have found that companies which haven't optimized these categories incur higher risk, have a more fractured brand, and are missing the opportunity to capture significant savings.
The SupplyLogic approach has been recognized as "best in class" by leading private equity and consulting firms. Our integrated, customer-centric model extends your marketing organization and provides you with category experts and six sigma process skills which will rapidly deliver increased value to your supply chain.
