* FAQ: Does JH Bertrand sell only to the trade?

Approximately 50% of our business is made for the trade which includes resellers, commercial printers, packaging companies, advertising agencies, and label manufacturers. The balance of our business is direct and handled exclusively by a very small sales force. While it would be nice to focus only on the trade, we need both channels to be successful as we operate in a niche. It is our intention, however,  to have our business more weighted in distribution as we grow. You will find us to be very frank, ethical and honest about working any issues out. We take account protection very seriously. You can be assured that your business with us will be handled confidentially and with great discretion. If you have any questions, feel free to call Jeff Bertrand to discuss.
