SERVICE FEE STRUCTURE

DIESEL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FEE

Lewis is committed to controlling operating costs so we can continue to provide you with the best overall value. However, diesel costs and environmental compliance costs imposed by the EPA cannot be fully controlled and they significantly increase the operating rates of our delivery fleet. Lewis’ Diesel and Environmental Fee is meant to help us partially cover these additional expenses.

DELIVERY CHARGE

Lewis has a delivery charge on orders totaling less than $150. Orders delivered outside of our regular delivery routes may require a dollar amount higher than $150. Direct shipments, UPS shipments, non-stock and/or special orders are subject to freight and/or handling charges where applicable. Orders that fall below our order minimum are subjected to a $25.00 small order charge.

Need to Know Specifics of Cut
1. Finished size 8 1/2 x 11
2. Number out per folio size 8-out
3. Quantity of finished size 8,000
4. Number of folio sheets per yield 1,000

(Heavyweight papers: $50.00 cwt. x applicable M weight = cutting charge)
