PaperSpecs Is Going Live in Austin

Tuesday, February 04, 2020

Press release from the issuing company

PaperSpecs Live event for designers and brand owners brings samples, swatchbooks, printing demonstrations and more to Austin Feb. 13th!

Palo Alto, Calif. – For years brand owners and print designers have demanded a local event that provides both a broad overview of paper and printing options – traditional and cutting edge – and guidance on how they can use them in their own work today. Which is why PaperSpecs, the online hub for graphic designers in love with paper and print, is bringing swatchbooks, samples and live demonstrations to a number of cities across the U.S. with PaperSpecs Live. The latest: Austin on Feb. 13th at Springdale Station.

“For more than a decade, PaperSpecs.com has provided designers with the latest info on everything from digital printing to binding, foiling technologies and more,” explains PaperSpecs Founder Sabine Lenz. “Yet ironically we’ve come to realize that the same characteristic that attracts so many to this medium – the feel of paper and print – is also woefully missing from designers’ lives today. And that’s why we launched our PaperSpecs Live events – to throw open that door for designers so they can see all that is possible.”

PaperSpecs Live is big on design ideas, free print and paper samples and more, but takes place in a manageable space, limited to just 200 attendees. This last aspect was particularly praised by many of those who attended the PaperSpecs Live events in Chicago and San Francisco.

“I loved that it was like a ‘mini’ conference,” explained SmithBucklin Graphic Designer Alaina Kornfeld. “One night with a good presentation and fabulous vendors, but not overwhelming like some events.”

PaperSpecs Live Austin attendees will be able to:

  • TAKE HOME loads of print and paper samples
  • SEE the tried-and-true AND cutting-edge print technologies
  • EXPLORE enticing embellishments
  • NETWORK with like-minded professionals
  • CHAT ONE ON ONE with paper and printing experts in an intimate setting

Tickets are just $15, with proceeds going to the Wild2Free Kangaroo Sanctuary (wild2free.org.au), which is helping wildlife injured by the Australian fires.
