Last month we got a call from the feature editor Mallory Hamel of Standard magazine, a prominent, celebrated design powerhouse. They found our seed embedded wrapping paper and asked if we would send them samples to photograph. We were flattered and excited and of course sent the stock and hoped for the best. The feature turned out so much better than we had imagined. You should have a look here
We love how our wrapping paper can be used and saved, reused and finally planted to add oxygen to our environment, closing the circle of life by nurturing new plants from the embedded seeds. Not only is our paper tree free and recycled, it is decorated with vegetable dyes and just right for the holidays. You must have that one (just one?) family member that is hard to shop for. Wrap their gift in our paper and like that kid who plays with the empty box, your friend will spend more time with the paper than what was inside. Come spring time this wrapping paper can be potted or planted outside and with constant watering will produce a garden of wildflowers to celebrate the next season. You can order the gift wrap here
This stunning handmade paper invitation was designed by our new friend in Australia who used our clunky invitation design tool (found here http://www.custompaper.com/Invitations/invitation_tool.html ). While not a perfect tool, it still has the ability to help you visualize your ideas and translate them to a working model which we can then turn into a wedding invitation proof like this. The invitation shown uses our Chocolate lotka heavy weight stock with a light weight non-seeded paper (it is Australia after all) overlay. The two are glued together and a pressed white larkspur stem is added to complete the look. These invitations can be recycled or composted as they will biodegrade naturally. Design your own today and send us a screenshot so we can post your creation here.
This invitation by the way would cost you only $4.08 each when paired with a matching handmade paper envelope. Amazing right? If your budget is super tight you could order the printed invitation as a do it yourself style package and spend only $2.58 each for the same set by adding your own tearing and gluing labor.
