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. They’ll have the perfect opportunity to do just that when the PaperSpecs [unboxed] “mini design conference” returns March 16th, featuring online presentations and real-life print samples sent to attendees in time for the event.


During [unboxed], designers ​have the chance to​​:​

  • Catch up on this year’s hottest print design trends. The world of graphic design is forever changing, and designers must show their clients that they know what’s hot ​, new and trending​. During [unboxed], trend-watcher and PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz will reveal the printing and finishing techniques that are impacting the industry in 2023!


  • Get their hands on the hottest new print samples. It’s hard to keep up with trends and technologies when you don’t have access to the latest print and paper samples. PaperSpecs [unboxed] attendees will receive a limited-edition Print Sample Box packed with inspiring pieces from industry leaders, including Sappi, Canon, Red Paper Plane, Sylvamo, Wausau Coated, CTI Paper​, Tyvek​ and more!


  • Discover how to put cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) tools to work for them. Special guest Evelio Mattos, founder of the Package Design Unboxd podcast, has made it his mission to discover the best ways to use this new technology. At [unboxed] he will reveal the many ways designers can harness the power of AI to create some of their finest work.


  • Have their questions answered by industry experts. From extended-gamut digital printing to new papers and more, designers will be able to seek advice from industry leaders who will show them how to supercharge their own print projects and create compelling pieces!


“Even though in-person events have returned, they only take place in big cities,” explains PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “Not only does [unboxed] bring ALL designers 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. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
