We occasionally get very excited about a website…finding PaperSpecs.com gave us many reasons to jump up and down with excitement for finding one source to go to for getting information on new papers, the printing industry and the creative things that are being done with paper. PaperSpecs claims to be fiercely independent and are not sponsored by any mills or merchants. They don’t sell paper, but simply tell you everything you need to know about it.
This website is for both the paper loving consumers and the professionals — the printers, designers and other interested parties who want to have up to date information on what is happening in the industry.
Here are some suggestions on articles that you might find useful…
