With All of the Focus on Digital, Print-Loving Designers are Often Left Out

We find that design conferences, and the industry in general, don’t pay enough attention to print and the resources graphic designers like you deserve.

At PaperSpecs Live, we’re here to celebrate the art form that is print design and support you in your work – with inspiration, insights and samples galore.

We did a quick tally and you can take home a whopping $900 worth of exclusive print samples.

So, right off the bat the cost of your ticket will be easily offset by the samples you can take home.
