2:00 p.m. Eastern (11:00 a.m. Pacific)

In this free PaperSpecs webinar sponsored by Storyboard, a trio of awarding-winning print professionals shares tips for choosing the best binding option for your project.

Palo Alto, California – March 3, 2015 – “Selecting the best binding method for a print project is as important as the design, the paper and the printing,” says Sabine Lenz, founder and CEO of PaperSpecs. “That’s why we’ve spent the last year covering binding processes in depth for our PRO members and published a quick guide called the Binding Cheat Sheet.”

PaperSpecs’s free webinar Stitch, Sew and Glue: Binding Magic will expand on the information in the Binding Cheat Sheet by giving attendees the opportunity to hear directly from three of the best binding experts in the industry.

“We spent months researching and consulting with this trio of print pros to produce the detailed content on the website as well as our at-a-glance guide. These experts help clients make crucial binding decisions every day so it made perfect sense to give attendees a chance to ask them questions and gain even more insight from their experience,” explains Lenz.
