Seed paper hang tags

These are little hang tags we printed for Chelsy Anne, a great jewellery maker we met at Ottawa’s Wed by Hand event. This is marks the first time we have ever printed on seed paper, which is manufactured in Winnipeg by Botanical Paperworks. We were concerned at first that the paper would be too fine to withstand the pressure of the press, but it held up just fine and did not crush the seeds.

Now whoever buys Chelsy’s jewellery can plant the hang tag and watch wildflowers grow from it! What a great idea.

Printed on double thick, white seed paper. 3.5×5.

We were able to fit six hang tags on a business card size and left the card untrimmed so Chelsy could plant the surplus herself.
