Washington might be the Evergreen State, but we are definitely starting to see some autumn colors here in Seattle! Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year in so much of the country. If you love autumn leaves as much as we do, here are some of our products that would be perfect for a fall wedding or event.
The crafting possibilities are endless with these pressed red Japanese Maple leaves. Attach them to paper goods for decorations or use them in resin art. We also offer custom invitations with pressed leaves added to create a unique and memorable invitation for your wedding or other event!
We also have a whimsical leaf die cut shape, which is available in a variety of our seeded papers in printed and blank options. The leaf shown below is made of our handmade, #12S seeded paper which contains kenaf fibers.
You can also get creative this fall with our pressed oak leaves, available below:
Does autumn inspire you to stay in and get crafty as the weather gets cooler? Show us your projects or contact us with ideas for custom printed items!
It is long past time to be sharing these photos that have been inspirational to our brides.
We have had the great fortune of having our paper and ribbon goods featured on many talented designers, artists and photographers Instagram feeds. While we have our own feeds (ote_seattle, and of_the_earth) they really don’t hold a candle to the creative skills shown in the photos we have seen.
What we have planned here is to share with you the many photos with proper attribution.
If you do end up sharing these with your friends and family, please be sure to give the appropriate nod or mention of the original group of skilled individuals so their work is not in vain.

Silk Ribbon: Of The Earth Florals: @moelleux_events Photographer: @alyssaryanphotography
Here is a quick look at the Northlake Wedding Program for the Center for Urban Horticulture event space. We are using our Earth Silk ribbon blend #016 in conjunction with the lotka seed paper, black print and a light weight slate background. We think this says Whimsical Romance! What do you think?
We just shipped this custom ribbon to a happy bride. She wanted to order our pressed hydrangea flowers but she needed a silk ribbon to match the hue of the flowers. We have over 150 colors in our hand dyed silk ribbon line but none that were quite the right shade, until now!
We offer custom dyed silk ribbon with a low three spool minimum purchase. Once we have your color matched, chances are it will become part of our growing line of silks. For those customers looking for an exclusive ribbon for product packaging or a signature line we can offer you a five year license of your custom color if you pay a $400 development and licensing fee. We will keep your design out of our product line while it is under license.
Just wanted to share with you photographs of our seed paper invitations display at the January Seattle Wedding Show. Wallflower Photography came by our booth and wanted to snap a few photos of our display, we of course said yes! They just sent these to us and we love them!
Please note how much better professional photographers can capture our handmade invitations – even without studio lighting. If you look at our earlier post you can see a dramatic difference. Think about that next time you are shopping online; how bad photos can really impact your impression of a product.
Thanks so much for sharing Wallflower Photography! We love your work!
If you want a sample invitation to hold in your hand so you can see the difference between your screen and the real thing, just visit our sample request page so you can get yours for free! Be sure to tear off a bit and plant it to watch what grows. Our unique blend of seeds that are embedded in our papers is listed below.
Our North American wildflower seed blend paper contains all of the following wildflower seeds:
Dwarf Spurred Snapdragon
Showy Evening Primrose
Red Corn Poppy
This blend is specifically designed to be mailed and planted in all growing regions of North America. With the proper care some of these flowers will thrive from New Mexico to New Brunswick.
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. You can call 1.888.294.1526 or visit www.custompaper.com to order these today.
