Building A Space For Print
For Print.Print and bound material are highly susceptible to humidity, temperature changes, dust, and fingerprints while being stored, handled, dented, bent, and torn when shipped. Our team and facility specialize solely in print and bound materials; we know the value of keeping this inventory pristine and ready for the end consumer, and that starts with reliable, stable storage.
Our Modern Warehousing Provides:
• Year-round climate-controlled environment with backup systems to keep everything in its initial condition
• Closed off, secured grounds with 24/7 monitoring and phone-free environment to protect your content
• Stored in a safe environment that protects from any damage, wear or tear, or yellowing over time.
• Transparent, scalable storage pricing that grows with you.
• 24/7 Traceable inventory counts

Boxes, unless previously agreed upon, must be 50 lbs or less. This is not only to protect our workers, but generally the best way to ship print without causing damage in transit (ltl or small parcel). Pallets generally should weight 1500 lbs or less, and should not be more than 55" tall. Please reach out to our team if weight or size restrictions are an issue for your team.
We can accept this inventory type as long as still in protective casing. An additional $45/hour will be applied to these shipments, billed in 15 minute increments. During this type of unload we will do a full inventory of box count by line item, included in the above billable rate.
Yes, all warehouse users will have a visible inventory count. Please message our team for setting this up if not already available.
The savings threshold for half pallet vs individual boxes is 8 boxes, for all standard size boxes. The threshold for half pallet vs full pallet is based on weight and size and what can safely be stacked on half a pallet. In the case of having a full half pallet, we will always store the remaining as single box units, until it is more cost effective and practical to put onto it's own pallet.
We accept all major credit cards, check, wire transfer and ACH. For qualifying customers we do offer net terms for services rendered as well as shipping paid by AP&B.
Yes, generally this is an easy process of transfer. Please contact AP&B warehouse team member, and we will get you transferred over.
Yes, upto 2 titles/SKU per pallet max. This is to help reduce your storage costs, as well as to ensure without increasing any chance of mixup on sku counts or placements.
We track inventory real time, with inventory volume tracked daily at end of day, and charged end of each calendar month.
If printing and binding with AP&B we remove the cost of inventory counting, in-bound, which is a major cost at most all warehouses big or small. We also manage shipment into our facility, at often drastically reduced rates compare to your print or bind vendor, and on the other end of that delivery is a team dedicated to managing only paper and bound materials.
