Palo Alto, Calif. – To maintain their competitive edge, graphic designers and brand owners must see – and feel – the latest trends in printing, finishing and paper. That’s what the PaperSpecs Live [unboxed] “mini design conference” is all about – merging online presentations with real-life print samples sent to attendees in time for the event.

During the next Live [unboxed] on May 5th, special guest Kevin Shaw, founder of Stranger & Stranger, will reveal how the frequent pushing of creative boundaries has made his liquor and beer packaging company the powerhouse that it is today.

“Just because COVID has changed the way we do business doesn’t mean designers can afford to miss the latest trends,” explains PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “Not only does our Live [unboxed] event continue to bring them the latest printing, finishing and paper trends in one 3 hour experience, but our guest speaker – as well as the samples attendees receive in their Print Sample Boxes – remind them why they fell in love with print in the first place.”

And from industry leaders they will discover how to supercharge their print projects and create the most compelling printed pieces.

The event was great! I have been in business for 40 years and I still learned some things. When’s the next one? 
– Cindy Hauff


During this 3 hour mini design conference designers and brand owners will:

Thanks again for a great event! It was so wonderful to get together with fellow designers and paper people. My creative battery feels recharged!
