Q: How can you e-auction print when it has such diverse formats/grammages/distributions?


Regardless of whether or not you are building a rate card or requesting quotes on a specific job, print can be sourced in an auction format.  You need to make sure that your specifications are tight and that it is very clear what suppliers are quoting on. 


Please note that an e-auction may not always be the ideal method.  Consider RFP’s and other sourcing activities if the details are somewhat vague.
