About the seed paper
At Paper-Go-Round we make seed paper using traditional techniques. We collect recycled paper from local business, organisations and schools as well as using off cuts from printers & papermills. We blend the waste paper with water to make a pulp to form a new sheet of paper. During this process we add seeds from Aussie farms to create a finished sheet of paper that can be printed or written on, then planted and grown. While years of paper making experience has enabled us to produce seed paper that is consistent across each batch, each sheet is still unique due to its handmade nature and is between 180 to 200 GSM.
All our seed paper can be printed on. We also make paper that does not contain seeds and this, too, can be printed. Even our paper with a deckle edge can be printed.
Our paper can be purchased blank to print your own products or we can print for you.
Our page on PRINTING GUIDELINES contains further details on types of printing available and which seeds are best suited to each printing option.
Designing artwork for seed paper is a little different to ‘normal’ paper. The standard colour of our seed paper varies between an off white to a light cream. Flecks of recycled content may be visible in the paper. As it is handmade there may be some slight variation in thickness and seed placement throughout each sheet. Our paper is uncoated and slightly absorbent. Colours may print differently to what they would on normal, machine made paper.

Artwork can be supplied to us as a PRINT READY PDF or we can help to create your artwork.
