Imagine someone having your creative back.
Providing you with hands-on tools, up-and-coming trends,
insights and resources to keep your creative momentum
going and going…

There’s never been a better time to band together with others who are on the same creative wavelength as you. Join hundreds of fellow designers, and enjoy the insights, support, swatchbooks and promotions you need to create compelling printed pieces!

…plus a supportive and smart community to help you along the way.

Hands-On-Tools

Being able to touch and feel a paper before you spec it is crucial. But chances are more than 50% of the swatchbooks on your shelf are outdated. Not to worry, we’ve got your back.

Your PRO membership includes access to the latest swatchbooks and hot off the presses promotions from over 60 companies. From the well-known mills you’ve come to know and trust, to boutique and specialty paper lines. Our mission is to ensure you know what’s hot, new and trending, and you get samples in hand ASAP.

Support

As a graphic designer you are wearing one too many hats – but you don’t have to go it alone.
Get clarity, community, and all the support you need for each season of your print design journey. Whether you’re relatively new to print or a seasoned pro. Whether you have paper or print related questions.

Your membership includes access to our

  • PRO Concierge who is standing by to answer your printing and paper questions
  • Exclusive PRO member Facebook group where you can connect with your fellow PRO members

You’ve got an army of print designers who have great advice, tips and solutions, and who want to help you create the most compelling printed pieces!

Insights You Can’t Get
Anywhere Else.

Being a graphic designer is an ongoing journey, not a one-and-done process. Because your clients will likely change, and paper and print technologies evolve, you need resources and support as you start new projects.

You’ll also get access to a massive library of over 300 hours of written and recorded content, exclusive to our PRO members.

Explore new techniques or jump in for a refresher as you go.

Here’s What our Members Think of Their PRO Membership

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.

The PRO membership is the kind of resource and community I wish I’d had throughout my design career.

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.
