More Than Just Paper: Porter’s By The Numbers

Posted by

Looks can be deceiving! We do so much more than sell paper.

You may have seen a delivery truck on the highway driving past with a big blue cow on the side, or perhaps you may have passed by a store with a humble but recognizable name: Porter’s Office Products. And you thought to yourself, They must be a smaller local company; they probably just sell paper. As one of our most beloved characters from everyone’s favorite office-workplace sitcom would say, WRONG! We are a steadily expanding office product supplier based out of South Eastern Idaho, where we have been setting the standard in excellent customer service for over a hundred years, and we do SO much more than paper. Prepare to be “utterly” amazed by just how much we can do for you and to see just how big our commitment is to providing an excellent experience for your business.

Making a difference: The Blue Cow Way

At our company, community engagement isn’t just a responsibility—it’s a core value that drives our actions. We proudly partner with Make-A-Wish to sponsor local events, granting unforgettable experiences to children battling critical illnesses. Beyond this, our commitment extends throughout the regions we serve, from Twin Falls to Pocatello, from Jackson to Logan, UT. We actively support the local community by organizing food drives for the Family Crisis Center, ensuring families in need have access to essential resources. Additionally, we rally behind education through initiatives like the Back-to-School Bash, where we provide vital support to local schools and students. Moreover, we lace up our sneakers for events like the Walk for Wishes, marching alongside our neighbors to raise funds and awareness for children’s dreams. Through these diverse initiatives, we strive not only to make a difference but also to cultivate a culture of compassion and support within every community we touch.

That’s why we take pride in our extensive network of partnerships, not only within the business realm but also with charitable organizations across diverse sectors.
