“Print design trends are always evolving,” explains PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “And while there are plenty of places creatives can see the latest online design technologies, graphic designers who love print are left to figure it out for themselves. That’s why we created the [unboxed] experience. Give us 3 hours and we’ll not only show you the absolute latest in printing, finishing and paper trends, but we’ll even send you an exclusive Print Sample Box so you can see AND feel it all for yourself.” 

 “…SO THANKFUL for all of the paper swatchbooklets I’ve gathered from your events. I have never felt more bad ass speaking to a printer.”
