We’ve sold hundreds of thousands of seed paper sheets and, as each one is handmade, sometimes things don’t go 100% to plan. We have high standards and this paper didn’t quite pass our quality checks so we’re selling it at up to 50% off our standard sheets. Perfect for any eco warriors out there who, like us, hate waste!
Our seed paper can be printed on but care needs to be taken when deciding which type and printer to use. Printing details can be found on each variation below.
Some printers do not like seed paper due to the uneven texture and also, some seeds might get dislodged. For this reason, we cannot be held responsible for any damage that might be caused. While we have had no reports of damage to any home printers from light use, heavy/commercial use on such devices could result in issues such as unwanted marks on paper and result in the printer needing a deep clean.
Laser printers should not be used as excessive heat can decrease the germination rates of the seeds or make them completely nonviable. We would not recommend using a commercial printer, unless they’re experienced with printing on handmade seed paper, as seeds can either become over-heated or crushed in the process. Dislodged seeds could also cause damage to their expensive machines or take a long time to cleanout. The only commercial printing we would recommend is screen printing without excessive pressure.

To make sure your seed paper has the best chance of turning into beautiful flowers, be sure to write/print detailed instructions on it.
– Recommended planting time – Spring/Summer (when it’s warm/hot)
– Soak in water and tear into small pieces.
– Place pieces in a pot of compost and very lightly sprinkle more compost on top
– Water and keep the soil and paper moist (do not let it dry out but do not leave it constantly wet either) in a warm and light environment
– Once your small plants have grown, place pot outside or keep on a window that has lots of sun.
– Do not plant in nature – eco systems are fragile.

Not picky about perfection? Grab a bargain with our imperfect seed paper. Each sheet will have some imperfection like a crease, mark, small tear, uneven thickness, waviness, discolouration or slight variation in size.
A cheaper option for those looking for recycled & handmade paper with less seeds in than our standard sheets. They are not suitable for cutting down into smaller shapes as each small shape might not have enough seeds in to grow.
Sheets with differing degrees of waviness – a few are close to perfect, others have more of a wave and you will receive a mix. These sheets are great for crafting but harder to print on as the raised areas might cause marks/streaking.
