We are up to our elbows in pulp these days and a little cramped for space, so unfortunatley we do not offer tours at this time.

Stock Paper - up to a week to ship

Custom Paper - up to 5 weeks

Printing - typically 4 weeks

These timelines can change depending on the season and work load, contact us for a more accurate turnaround. 

If you are a registered business you may request a wholesale account through the website navigation. Once your account is approved you will see your discounted pricing. Printing and custom order pricing are currently being evaluated.

Due to the custom nature of our business we require a deposit on all orders and the balance to be paid in full before the order ships.

Depending on your project we can give general pricing over the phone. However we recommend filling out the paper/print request form for an accurate estimate or you can always email us with your specs.

We utilize USPS, UPS and FedEx. If you would like to use your shipping account please let us know when you place the order. For international orders we do our best when filling out customs forms and scheduling the pickup but we always suggest that the client handle the shipping.

We can not be responsible for additional customs fees or taxes.

All unprinted samples are located in the "Sample Room"

Swatch books hope to be avaible soon.


Letterpress and inkjet/digital are all available. Of course our favorite and recommended is letterpress.

Our two main fiber sources are Cotton and Pre Consumer Waste (envelope trimmings), which are made from wood fibers.

We do! We realize not everyone wants the same color or size of paper. We love nothing more than to create a custom paper for your specific project. Looking for more than color? Scented, iridescent, inclusions…we will try everything at least once. To get a quote go here.

Yes and No. If it is a stock paper then you can purchase just one sheet. If it is a custom paper then a minimum of one batch will be required which amount to 35-40 parent sheets (19"x25"). You will need to contact us for smaller size quantities.

The largest sheet we can produce is 19"x25" with a full deckle edge. We can trim it to 18″x24″ so you have a clean edge to work with.  In addition we also can make a wide variety of smaller sheets including but not limited to -

Business/Escort Card - 3.5" x 2"

4bar - 3.5" x 4.87"

A2 - 4.25" x 5.5"

Depending on the line of paper you purchase the weight will vary. We prefer to give the thickness of the paper rather than the weight as paper weights vary from paper type. Below is both approximate weight and thickness of our stock papers. If you are in need of thinner or thicker just reach out.

1889 Collection - 200 gsm

Blue Collar - 350gsm

Sweet Wilds - 200 gsm

We have produced over 5,000 parent sheets per week when the workload called for it, but most of the time we average 500-900 parent sheets or 11,520 of our smallest sheet per week.

Depending on how full our schedule is and the size of the job, we can get most paper orders made, packaged and shipped within 2-3 weeks from the date we receive the purchase order and deposit.However, it is always a good idea to ask us about our current schedule when placing your order. We do try to keep the majority of papers in stock for immediate shipping.


Back in the '90s we started putting seeds into paper! Why? We are not sure, but it sounded like a good idea at the time, and now almost 30 years later people are still loving it! The idea goes like this…send the paper with your message on it, your recipient reads and plants it. Weeks later they have a flower garden, tomato plant, or maybe even a birch tree sprout. 

Our papers are all made by hand and air-dried. This puts the seeds through as little trauma as possible. Commercially made seeded papers are often dried with heat, which essentially roasts the seeds and prevents germination.

Yes. We do test for germination on our wildflower mix, while we have had great success, growing conditions and printing processes can have different effects on the paper.Because of this we cannot guarantee germination until a test has been done.However, we have used a wide variety of seeds over the years including but not limited to: basil, parsley, chives, dill, oregano, tomato, lettuce, and chile pepper as well as our wildflower mix and have had success germinating them. Germination rates will vary depending on the printing process used with the paper.

Moisten card and plant just under the surface of some soil in a sunny spot. Water regularly until seeds germinate and watch them grow!

For specific seeds, such as tree seeds, the planting instructions may vary, ask us for details.

Our wildflower mix may contain a mixture of the following seeds: black-eyed susan, spurred snapdragon, sweet alyssum, bird’s eye, farewell to spring, dwarf catchfly, and Shirley Poppy (depending on availability).

Our herb mix may contain dill, thyme, oregano, parsley, chive, and basil.

Our vegetable mix may contain carrot, lettuce and tomato.

Certain seeds can cause slight discoloration of the paper. Usually this is minimal and does not take away from the quality of the finished product.

Due to the unpredictable nature of organic matter, we can’t guarantee whether or not the seeds will bleed.


See downloadable artowrk guide.

See downloadable artwork guide.

Allow at least .25 inches around the edges of your design, as the deckled edge and irregular shape of handmade papers may impact your print's placement.

As with any handmade paper printing, we cannot guarantee perfect vertical or horizontal alignment or center since the shape of each sheet can vary slightly.

If you are printing text make sure all fonts are expanded to an outline. You know your font is expanded when you have a colored outline around each character when selected.

If your artwork touches the edge of the trim-line we ask that you add a .125 inch bleed. 

While we can register pretty darn good it never hurts to add trapping if the art work has a lot of hair line registration. With that being said most of the time we receive artwork without trapping. We will leave that up to you.

Digital and physical proofs are avaible upon request. We ask all clients to review text and images closely so we can have the best possible outcome.

We do not offer in house designs at this time.

No we do not, all designs need to be provided by the client.

Water based inks work great, do not use toner, as it tends to rub off the paper.

Yes, the germination rate is lower, and in some cases seeds will not germinate.If others tell you yes, we suggest that you get samples.

Yes, our ink for letterpress is vegetable based. Our ink for digital is a water based.

Yes we can! For letterpress It is best to use a heavier stock (220lb or our thicker handmade paper) so that there is no image show through on the other side. We typically print the “feature” side last so that has the best impression.
