Are you looking for an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional paper products? Seed paper, also known as plantable paper, is a fantastic option that not only reduces waste but also adds a touch of nature to your wedding and event stationery.
In Australia, there are several companies that specialise in seed paper products, offering a range of options for different purposes and budgets. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the best places to buy plantable seed paper in Australia, so you can find the perfect match for your needs and contribute to a greener future.
What is seed paper?
Plantable seed paper is a type of paper that contains seeds embedded within it. Seed paper utilises recycled materials and is biodegradable. After use, plant the invitations in soil, and the embedded seeds will sprout and grow into plants.
How is seed paper made?
Plantable seed paper is made by combining recycled paper pulp with wildflower or herb seeds. The mixture is then formed into sheets and dried. The result is a paper that can be printed on and used like traditional paper, but with the added benefit of being able to grow plants.
What types of seeds are available in Australia?
Plantable seed paper can be customised with a variety of wildflower or herb seeds. Some common seeds include basil, thyme, Swan River daisies, and wildflower mixes. You can choose the type of seeds that best fits your event and location.
How do you use seed paper?
Plantable seed paper can be used for a variety of products, from wedding invitations to thank you cards. You can print your design directly onto the paper using an inkjet printer, or print on a separate sheet and attach it to the seed paper. Once the invitations have been used, they can be planted in soil and the seeds will grow into plants.
Where can you buy seed paper in Australia?
Plantable seed paper is available from a variety of online retailers such as Etsy and Buy Eco Green. You can also find it at some local paper stores or eco-friendly paper boutiques.Here is a list of some of the Australian retailers that we know of:
- Paper-Go-Round in Melbourne has all your seeded paper needs covered. Here you’ll find paper, envelopes, custom products and they even offer custom seeded paper printing. All seeds used in the plantable seed paper are procured from sources within Australia. They offer a wide selection of seeds, including cooking herbs, as well as seeds from native Australian trees, shrubs, and flowers.
- SeedPaperSupplyCo on Etsy is a local Aussie shop selling coloured seeded paper. They have a range of colours including red, blue, green and yellow.
- Buy Eco Green has a selection of seeded paper available, including herb seeds and wildflower seeds.
- Seedsticks offers custom seeded paper made to your specifications and art requirements. They can also print your design onto the paper.
Because the paper contains living seeds, it may be subject to quarantine inspection in some states and territories, namely Western Australia and Tasmania. Sometimes, these inspections can be quite costly and may come with an inspection fee.
We recommend buying seeded paper from Australian retailers only, as there may be fines or costs associated with importing seeded paper from overseas. The same goes for sending seeded paper out of Australia into other countries.
If you’re unsure about quarantine regulations, it’s best to contact the paper seller and ask them for their opinion.
Overall, using plantable seed paper for your wedding stationery is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and add a unique touch to your event. Plus, your guests will love the idea of planting their invitations and watching them grow into beautiful plants!
