What is Seed Paper?

Seed Paper is a biodegradable eco-paper made with recycled and sustainably sourced materials which have been embedded with seeds. When the paper is planted and the paper composts away all that will be left behind is flowers, herbs or vegetables. 

What seeds does your seed paper have?

Our papers are available in a range of seeds such as wildflower mix, alyssum, tomato, carrot, daisy, poppy, lavender, rudbeckia, thyme, parsley and basil.

What is the difference between Lux and Bloom?

Lux and Bloom are our most popular seed papers. Lux has a lower growth rate, but a much smoother finish for high quality printing. Bloom is whiter and has a much higher growth rate as it is air dried giving the seeds the best chance of germinating.

What is Elephant Poo Paper?

Elephants Poo Paper is made from elephant poo and cotton fibres or recycled materials.Using the poo to make paper provides a source of income for the elephant sanctuaries that our makers work with. They are a great novelty option for kids stationery, father's day cards, businesses that work with animals and much, much more! 

Can I print on Seed Paper?

Yes, you can print on our papers using a range of techniques from home inkjets to screen printing. Due to the surface of the paper printing can be a little more challenging, so please ensure you have enough paper to cover all your requirements. Seed paper is not suitable for use with laser printers.

What are the "UPGRADE" charges showing on my invoice?

Many of our products come with a base version, and additional features or enhancements are offered as upgrades. Each upgrade typically incurs an additional cost, which will show as a separate item on your invoice.

Charging for upgrades separately allows customers to tailor their purchases according to their specific needs. It provides flexibility, enabling them to choose only the features they require, allowing for complete customisation of our products.

Will I receive a proof for my order?

Yes, all customised work is sent to you to approve before going to print, you will have the final say on all of our designs. You will NOT receive a proof if you are providing artwork yourself as we expect this to be created within the requirements set out in each product page. If we do notice any issues we will of course raise them, but you should not rely on this and it is not a guarantee or something we can be held responsible for.

Can you ship internationally?

Yes, in fact we see similar demand both overseas and in the UK. International orders are obviously subject to longer shipping times and local regulations.
