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. 


Revista Cruce Magazine: A Textural Experience

None of us at PaperSpecs could read one word of this gorgeous magazine, Revista Cruce (our Spanish is too bad), and quite frankly we didn't care (no offense to the editorial staff). It's simply enough to hold it and leaf through it!

This 7.5x12˝ saddle-stitched magazine is gorgeous from the first of its 44 pages to the last. In fact, the designers write the story on how to use a variety of papers effectively and creatively. Together, these papers all work seamlessly—conveying the personality of the publication, enhancing the stories and bringing out the best in photographs—creating a textural experience for the reader.
