PRO Benefits: Exclusive PRO Tips

square-vs-saddle-11There’s just something about a perfect bound magazine – that chunky, substantial feel, that spine just waiting for copy or cool design elements; in a word, “perfect.” Yet as much as we love this binding technique, sometimes it’s simply not in our budget. But what if you could put a nice square spine on your next project without paying perfect-binding prices? The secret? PaperSpecs PRO members know – it’s just one of nearly 300 (and counting!) exclusive PRO Tips they receive instant access to with their membership.

Every week PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz brings members a new, detailed PRO Tip on another aspect of paper and print design calculated to save them time, money and hassle. If it’s a question you’ve had, chances are she’s already answered it in a PRO Tip. These take several forms, including:

  • Get the Look: Been wowed by a neat effect or I-love-it printed piece? Sabine draws on years of design experience (and a number of printers and designers) to show you how to get the same look for your own projects.
  • Your questions answered: Not sure if using foil is environmentally friendly? Trying to work out how to match Pantone colors on a digital press? Looking for some tips on hiding paper bruising? We’ve got you covered.
  • New design ideas: Had it with the same old direct mail pieces? Looking for new ways to use gold or metallics? You will find a host of new ideas to make your own.
