Making the Grade

By Sabine Lenz

About Sabine

Sabine Lenz is the founder of, the first online paper database and community specifically designed for paper specifiers.

Growing up in Germany, Sabine started her design career in Frankfurt, before moving to Australia and then the United States. She has worked on design projects ranging from corporate identities to major road shows and product launches. From start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, her list of clients included Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Deutsche Bank, IBM and KPMG.

Seeing designers struggle worldwide to stay current with new papers and paper trends inspired Sabine to create PaperSpecs, an independent and comprehensive Web-based paper database and weekly e-newsletter. She is also a speaker on paper issues and the paper industry. Some refer to her lovingly as the "paper queen" who combines her passion for this wonderful substrate called paper with a hands-on approach to sharing her knowledge. 


Aslan Graphics’ Business Card Sets the Standard

At, we’d expect a print broker to have a great business card, and that’s exactly what Aslan Graphics has. Feast on these designer elements: the texture of the raised engraved ink against your fingertips; that white against black on the edge of the card; those lovely little notches in the side; and the great thickness from laminating two stocks together.

The beauty of this business card is something that simply can’t be simulated on a computer screen.
