Paper merchant Paperlinx is to take its newly launched graphical consumables business, Total Print Supplies (TPS,) to Ipex in May.
TPS offers pre-press products, blankets, press chemicals, inks and coatings through its operating companies PaperCo and the Robert Horne Group.
Steve Brading, Paperlinx business development director, said the move demonstrated that merchants were well positioned to supply a wide range of print room consumables.
He said: "More than 200 printers are already seeing the financial and logistical benefits of bundling their paper with their litho consumables requirements.
"Be reassured that we have considered everything from procurement, supply, production and, most crucially of all, have invested heavily in technical expertise to provide experienced customer service and advice."
TPS stocks Agfa's Azura and Lithostar plates, Rollin blankets and inks manufactured by Sun Chemical.
