Hi, I’m Sabine.

An award winning graphic designer with more than 20 years experience working in Germany, Australia and the US, I am passionate about paper and print – and great design of course – and want to share this passion and my knowledge with other designers and brand owners.

I have experienced first-hand the gap that exists between what designers know – what you and I learned – about paper and print and what is actually possible when you look at paper trends and advances in print technology today.

My goal is to create a one stop resource for fellow print creatives. A place where you can hang out with like minded designers, ask questions, get tips, insights and have access to the latest swatchbooks and promotions.
