Seed paper is about as green as marketing items come. The paper itself is sustainably produced, and it safely breaks down. The resulting plants are incredibly green, and as all plants do they will convert carbon dioxide into breathable oxygen. Our seed paper has a very high germination rate, which means if planted your customers are very likely to get plants.

Working with Seed Paper

Due to the seeds embedded in the paper the sheets have a very textured surface. This textured surface will grab your customer’s attention. When people typically see the paper for the first time they want to touch it because it has such an interesting look and feel.

There are some key things to know about working with seed paper. The irregular surface is unique to each piece and paper and may lead to inconsistencies with printing. Printing the same file may look slightly different from one piece to another. In order to minimize legibility issues we suggest your design avoid thin fonts, because on the off chance a thin line overlaps a seed embedded in the paper it may not show up well.

The thick texture of the paper is great for letterpress printing, since it can hold a nice impression. Beware that if you letterpress print your piece some seeds may be crushed in the process, and it will impact the likelihood of those seeds sprouting.
