Up-to-date online communication!

August 27th, 2018 Posted by Allgemein, Customer 0 thoughts on “Up-to-date online communication!”

As a customer-oriented paper processor, Format Werk for some time now, has been providing its customers with all brand image data for the print sector in the perfect TIFF format.

This does not only give you the perfect print quality using our image data, but you also have the option of putting the images on any background of your choice, even with drop shadows, since these TIFF files are stored with transparent backgrounds.

Do you need a product picture? Help yourself!

What is new is that, all image data for presentation on the Internet has also been converted into the promising PNG format. The PNG format will be THE web format of the future.

This means that you as a customer can simply download the images directly for your online communication by right clicking in the Servicenet / Image Module If you do not yet have access to our service network, simply request it from our marketing department by e-mail:

This gives you access to all image data of our branded products, which you can then use in your communication with customers. Just like our print data in TIFF format, you now have the possibility to quickly access PNG image data with transparent backgrounds for use in your shop system or for your online advertising.

We see it as a special service to make all image data available to our customers – try it out!

No goods without purchasing

March 8th, 2018 Posted by Allgemein 0 thoughts on “No goods without purchasing”

Format Werk is a paper processing company – but where does it actually get the paper from?

After all, we are talking about no less than 12,000 tonnes of paper being processed here every year.

A glance at the Purchasing department shows:

Kurt Mayer is in charge of everything. He is responsible for purchasing at our company, knows about the daily updated price of paper, observes the market and knows our suppliers inside out.

He is also our environmental officer – which naturally has an impact on purchasing. After all, only suppliers who meet our strict environmental requirements can be considered at all. As a production company we can still make such an effort – if the raw materials are not supplied in accordance with the regulations, we would not be able to manufacture top environmental products from them.

The professionals in strategically sustainable paper purchasing

The shortage of raw materials and the adjustment of the market are currently a major challenge, as the suppliers in question must be optimally coordinated in terms of strategy, price and quality of goods.

Kurt Mayer – who has been working in the company for 18 years – emphasizes that the Format Werk has a decisive advantage in such negotiations: “As the market leader in the industry with know-how of more than 40 years, you can’t get past us. Suppliers like to cooperate with us because our name, brand awareness and above all our position as environmental pioneers are well-known in Germany and abroad.”

In this way, he succeeds in transforming the supposed dependence on a few suppliers into a strength. Due to the negotiation of paper quotas, scarcity of raw materials is no issue for Format Werk.
