Preferred Vendors

Below is a list of preferred vendors and contact information for a variety of purchasing categories. Purchasing from the same vendors allows us to develop better relationships with vendors. The greater the volume, the better the pricing, and the more likely that the vendor will be willing to go out of their way to help solve a problem.



Approved Vendors for Office Supplies

A-Z is the preferred vendor for office supplies other than toner (in most cases). For departments that require OEM (brand name) toner due to specialized printing needs, OEM toner can be ordered from A-Z as long as their toner price is comparable to Office Link's OEM price.


The easiest way to search for items is through their online ordering site: Note: you must be signed in to see FHU's pricing. If you are having trouble finding a specific item, contact Jared Nolen, our A-Z representative.


If you have trouble logging in, you may need to Enable Browser Cookies or try using the site with No Frames. If you still cannot login, contact or at 1-800-851-0189.


Once you have a purchase order, enter it in the checkout section of the website. Delivery days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you place an order as late as 4PM the day before a delivery, it will arrive with the next day's shipment.

Office Link
Office Link is the preferred supplier for both OEM and compatible toner cartridges. Please note: buying compatible cartridges is like purchasing the "store brand"; they are not refurbished. We recommend using compatible toner.


To get a quote, email with the printer model and/or toner model number. If the toner is not on my price list, I will contact the company to get a quote.
Once you have a purchase order, place your order by emailing Justin Wright. Send him the toner model, PO number, and the delivery location.
