How to Print on Seeded Paper

If you’re looking for a sustainable and eco-friendly way to print promotional materials, seed paper is an excellent choice. Seed paper is made from recycled materials and embedded with wildflower seeds that, when planted, will sprout into beautiful blooms. Plus, it’s biodegradable and can be printed with any type of printing technique.

When it comes to printing seed paper, you have a few options. The most common printing method is digital printing. This technique uses digital files to create inkjet or laser prints with vibrant colors on the paper. It’s also the most cost effective way to print seed paper. Whilst both work you often need a high end printer capable of feeding high GSM substrates. We do express some caution with lazer printing as the heat can have a negative impact upon genrimation rate.

Offset printing is the best choice if you’re looking for high-quality, long-lasting prints. This method uses plates to transfer the ink to the paper, allowing for sharp, detailed images and text. It’s slightly more expensive than digital printing, but is worth the cost if you’re looking for a professional finish.

Screen printing is another popular choice for seed paper printing. In this technique, the ink is pushed through a fine mesh screen onto the paper for a vibrant, colorful finish. It’s a great choice for large prints with few colors, like logos or text.

Finally, flexography is a suitable option for printing seed paper. This printing technique uses flexible rubber plates to transfer the ink to the paper, making it perfect for large-scale printing. It’s a great choice if you’re looking to print multiple copies of the same design.

No matter what printing technique you choose, seed paper is a great way to create sustainable, eco-friendly promotional materials. Plus, the wildflowers that sprout from the paper will add a beautiful touch to any event or campaign.
