HOW TO USE AND PLANT SEED PAPER CARDS
Using and planting seed paper cards is a simple yet rewarding process.
Instructions for Planting: To plant your seed paper card, simply place it under a thin layer of soil in a sunny spot. Water it regularly until the seeds germinate and start to grow.
Expected Growth and Care: Over time, with regular watering and adequate sunlight, the seeds in the card will sprout and grow. It’s essential to ensure they’re not overwatered and have good drainage.
Transformation to Wildflowers: One of the most magical aspects of these cards is watching them transform. What was once a business card gradually becomes a patch of beautiful wildflowers, serving as a lasting reminder of the interaction and the brand.
THE MAKING OF SEED PAPER CARDS
Creating seed paper cards is a meticulous process that combines traditional paper-making techniques with modern eco-friendly practices.
Embedding Seeds into Paper: The process begins with the creation of a pulp from recycled paper. This pulp is then spread out into thin sheets. Before the pulp dries, a mixture of seeds is sprinkled onto it, ensuring they are embedded within the paper.
Types of Seeds Used: The diverse mix of seeds used in our seed paper includes Birdsfoot Trefoil, Black Knapweed, Black Medick, Meadow Buttercup, Musk Mallow, Ox-Eye Daisy, Ribwort Plantain, Red Campion, Salad Burnet, Self Heal, White Campion, Yarrow, and Grass Seed.
Digital Printing on Seed Paper: Printing on seed paper requires special care to ensure the seeds remain viable. Water-based inks are used because they are gentle on the seeds. Additionally, heat-free printing technology is employed to prevent any damage to the seeds, ensuring they can germinate when planted.
