Mac Papers, headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, USA is the largest supplier of printing paper and envelopes in the Southeast United States,[2] delivering 100,000 tons of paper each year.[3] The company also provides graphic supplies, wide format media and equipment, packaging solutions, and office supplies, as well as custom product and logistics solutions.[4]


Clifford Graham McGehee founded the Jacksonville Paper Company in 1919. Frank McGehee and Tom McGehee, his sons, both worked in the family business, with Tom serving as president by 1956. The Jacksonville Paper Company was sold by the family in 1965, and the two brothers immediately started a new enterprise to target the printing and graphics industries.[3] The brothers expanded the business throughout eight states in the southeast, establishing distribution centers and employing many family members. The company features products from the best paper manufacturers worldwide. Founder Tom McGehee died in 2002; brother Frank followed in 2006, but the company is still controlled by the McGehee family.[5] Frank's son David is currently president and Sutton is CEO; Tom's son Mac is a vice president.[6]
