Prentiss and Thomas Carter established Carter Paper in 1954 after they realized the need for a reliable distributor of paper and packaging supplies. As a woman-owned, family owned business, the second generation of family members leads Carter Paper & Packaging, including our president, Lynn Akerberg.
Today, Carter Paper occupies a 55,000 square foot facility and employs 13 sales and service personnel to meet your every need from initial consultations and recommendations to distribution and follow up. Next day service is available on most purchases, and we offer free local delivery with a minimum purchase requirement.
We are proudly affiliated with the Better Business Bureau, Afflink, and the Peoria Chamber of Commerce. In 2004, we earned the Women’s Business Enterprise certification, bestowed on companies that are 51 percent woman owned, operated, and controlled.
