Printer Safe* Handmade Paper by Of The Earth

handmade paper invitations and silk ribbon manufacturer

Our papers are tree free and have a luxurious feel. We make every effort to conserve water and resources in making our paper. We add no chemicals or other agents to ensure that our process is as environmentally friendly as possible. By including seeds we close the lifecycle of our invitation paper goods. Our seed papers can nourish the soil and clean the air as the seeds turn to sprouts and become flowers. Shown here is the textured side of our cotton stock. This collection is one that can be carefuly hand fed through desktop print equipment that accepts card stock.

These hand made seed papers contain wildflower seeds that will sprout if properly cared for. The specific type of seeds are listed on the ordering page for the individual paper (most contain the same wildflower blend we developed for the widest North American growing region coverage possible).

Clicking on each one will bring you to an ordering page and a closer view of the paper. Put your mouse pointer over the paper to see the list of ingredients in the paper. You can order from these, use these to help design your paper or you can start from scratch. For each custom paper order we use only the flowers you request. Look at our examples and then come up with your own recipe. Email us with your flower choices and we will create a picture of what that combination looks like. Have a look at our ordering page to view a sample proofing page if you are ordering invitations too.

These seed paper sheets are sold in 18" x 24" full deckle edge sheets. They can also be converted into invitations here in our Seattle invitation studio. We sell our paper in many forms, in full sheets, with cut edges in any size requested and with torn edges to preserve the raw and natural feel of true handmade paper (our first choice). We make each sheet one at a time using a mould and deckle to create the unique quality found only in hand made papers.

*please use your best judgement when printing on handmade paper stock. The live seeds should not be crushed or exposed to heat or moisture to ensure viability after printing. Please understand that we take no responsiblity for your print experience on our handmade stock. These sheets are not made to print on. Of all the paper we make, these are the most likely to provide a positive print experience. Individual results will vary.
