Justin Ahrens, Rule29

Do you feel stifled by small budgets?
Do you wish for ‘better’ clients so you can finally let your creative genius shine?

What if better clients and bigger budgets weren’t the answer?

Stop waiting for
those unicorn projects

Hi, I am Sabine Lenz and like you I was waiting for the perfect budget, the unicorn client.

As a recovering designer
I thought I knew a lot about printing. And while I knew more than most, when I started PaperSpecs, I quickly realized how little I knew.

Listening to well meaning colleagues and printers
I often did not hear about the best options for my projects till it was too late. Till I spent more money than I needed to. Till I missed several – granted crazy but never the less – deadlines.

This is exactly why I started PaperSpecs
… to help designers just like you (and me) create the pieces that WOW even if the budget is tight or the timeline seems impossible.

relish inspiring ideas and
objective resources

My work (and the PRO Membership) is devoted to sharing inspiring ideas, objective resources and hands-on tools that will help you create printed pieces that wow.

Because the world needs your fabulous designs and because you CAN.

  • You CAN bring foil into your design without breaking the bank
  • Yes, raised ink CAN be within budget
  • Embellishments on a super short print run – NO PROBLEM

Don’t wait for the perfect client or the perfect budget to show off your creative best …


create courageous
print designs
