Welcome to PAGE Cooperative, your “new” longstanding partner for savings.

My name is Kevin Craig, and as the recently appointed CEO, I welcome you to PAGE Cooperative as we celebrate our 40th year of supporting our membership of publishers, printers, and suppliers.

As a refresher, PAGE was founded as a member owned, not-for-profit, to level the purchasing playing field for independent newspaper publishers and printers.  By cooperating with each other, publishers were able to obtain more favorable pricing and terms from the key suppliers of our industry and receive in return dividends and rebates for their purchases.  PAGE suppliers received the positive benefits from PAGE affiliation through loyal purchasing and reduced administration costs.

We will continue to foster this win-win partnership between our longstanding suppliers to our industry and the committed PAGE membership.

If you are visiting our website and you are:

  • A current member of PAGE, please contact me or the PAGE team and learn how you can maximize your membership in your Cooperative.
  • A former or prospective member of PAGE, please contact me and I will outline the financial and additional valued added benefits of joining us.
  • A current PAGE supplier, please contact me and learn what we are doing to increase and improve your communications to our members.
  • A prospective partner, please contact me and I will introduce you to the benefits of marketing to the PAGE membership and supporting our industry.

In 2024 and beyond, we must work together, and PAGE Cooperative will continue to play a vital role in supporting our industry with financial benefits that help fund our newsgathering operations.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what we can do together.

Member Benefits

PAGE Cooperative was originally formed to save its members money and that goal still holds true today.

By joining together with other independently owned newspaper companies, PAGE Cooperative members earn significant volume based discounts and rebates on consumables, equipment, and services from over 100 PAGE suppliers. While saving money may be the biggest advantage of PAGE, it isn’t the only one.

Supplier Benefits

If you are a supplier and want to partner with PAGE Cooperative, contact us.

The goal of PAGE Cooperative is to combine its volume purchasing and to bring supplies and services to PAGE members at a cost lower than members could expect to command on their own. In return, PAGE suppliers receive substantial benefits.
