1. Seed Paper Wedding Invitations are eco-friendly
It’s no secret that seed paper wedding invitations, being fully compostable, makes it one of the best options for eco-friendly invitations.

We know that there are thousands of paper out there that are 100% recyclable, but none of it goes beyond the uniqueness of this plantable paper. They are an inexpensive way to make your wedding special, unique, and environmentally friendly.

Not only are they happy to hear about the big news, knowing that you put something special on the wedding invitations will surely surprise them. Imagine receiving a wedding invitation without having to feel bad because you don’t have any space left in your drawer to keep it. Now you have an option to plant and grow them into wildflowers!

Plantable Wedding Invitations – What Makes Them Unique
When it comes to styling seed paper save the date or seed wedding invitations, the options are unlimited. However, our paper and production experts have an important note if you decide to use seed paper for your wedding stationery. You will need to understand the nature of seed paper. Seed papers are handmade so the dimension, shade and thickness of the paper might vary. It also has a rough texture on it which some people might find not too satisfying. This type of paper works really well with minimal typography design. There are no limitations in coloured ink, but we suggest darker fonts and thicker texts to make sure it reads well. We also suggest avoiding full-colour designs that expand to the corner area to minimize the registration issues.
Another option if you don’t quite like how roughly textured the seed paper is, is that you can opt for an indie handmade paper instead (see below). Indie handmade paper is eco-friendly and has rough edging which makes it very unique. The paper surface is pressed enough that it is not too rough, but still leaves a fingertip-pleasing sensation when touched. We love this as much as seed paper when it comes to quality paper.
