Sabine Lenz is the founder of PaperSpecs.com, 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.
What better motif for a destination wedding in Puerto Rico could there be than a boarding pass? That's what designer, A Day in May of Traverse City, MI, set out to create with this sophisticated and clever piece.
Printed by Full Circle Press in Nevada City, CA, the size and diecut shape of the boarding pass are spot on. But what really sets this project apart is the subtle pattern in the background. A blind hit from the letterpress on the 110-lb. Mohawk Loop Felt Cover adds a wonderful leathery texture and an air of authenticity.
