All of our paper is made from 100% cotton waste.
We uses waste cotton rags getting from garment companies which produce undergarments and cotton products. We require waste cotton in bulk quantity so we work with the direct garments companies who produce in large quantity & have wastage in bulk quantity .
while we would love to make all of our papers out of 100% white cotton, the irregular color and texture limits our ability to control the quality of the end product. since some of our papers are being made for projects that require very specific colors and textures. 100% white cotton waste allows us to maintain our standard in quality and consistency as our buyer required.
Our regular production of Paper start from 110gsm thickness and goes upto 500gsm and the paper is handmade, so this may vary ever so slightly. if you are interested in thicker or thinner sheets for a specific project just contact us and we`ll let you know what we can do!
We can produce over 16,000 sheets per day when the workload calls for it, however most of the time we average roughly 11,000-12,000 sheets per day. depending on how full our schedule is and the size of the job we can get most paper orders packaged and shipped within 2-3 weeks from the date we receive the purchase order and deposit. it is always a good idea to check with us on scheduling when placing your order.
Our standard size of paper is 22”X30” (56X76cms.). and uncut size(deckledge) is 26”X34”(66X86cm). the size of paper can be customized as per requirement so if you are interested in large or small size sheets for a specific project just contact us and we`ll let you know what we can do!
We would like to receive hard copy of your color sample, but you can suggest us through pantone code no. also
Most of the time buyer send seeds to us and sometimes we arrange at our level in India as per buyer requirement of seeds for seeds paper
Our generic planting instructions usually consist of something like the following: “this handmade paper is embedded with (__herb/wildflower__) seeds that will grow almost anywhere. 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. please feel free to contact us if you need instructions for a specific seed.
Generally speaking, we choose seeds that are small and easy to print on, that are also easy to grow. we have made paper with a variety of seeds that range from the barely visible to the practically edible (pine and spruce seeds) however, larger seeds are not suitable for projects that involve most printing. if you`re interested in using larger seeds such as tree seeds, it`s a good idea to stick to projects that involve die cutting and mounting. even smaller hard seeds can and will damage the plates used for letterpress printing, resulting in damaged type and splotchy solids. the best way to find out whether or not a specific seed will work for your project is to contact us. certain seeds can also cause slight discoloration of the paper. usually this is minimal and does not take away from the quality of the finished product (see photo below). due to the unpredictable nature of organic matter, we can`t guarantee whether or not the seeds will bleed.
our papers are all made by hand and natural dried. this way, the seeds endure as little as possible. commercially made seeded papers are often commercially dried with heat through heater. this essentially roasts the seeds which will prevent germination.
Silk screen printing, flock printing, velvet printing, offset printing, block printing will give beautiful attraction which come with finishing and for seeds paper we prefer silk screen & block printing. If you want any other printing suggestion then write to us.
yes. we have tested our papers on several different inkjet and laser printers and have had no problem and we specially prefer 110gsm thickness paper for inkjet or laser printer Although quality will not be as good as a commercially printed paper, and we are not sure that your printer will be able to withstand larger quantities and the thickness, but they`ll still print.
It`s depends on our schedule of production because if any particular color paper production is going on then we normally can not change, for that we have to cleaning everything in our process like cleaning of Hollander, cleaning of fabric(use for separate paper) etc which makes wastage of water. but if your color is already in our production for our other buyer, and you are in hurry then we can make paper for you first although thickness can be anything. So, to know about your order ship time then you need to write us.
The best way to go about ordering from us is to email us. Which one is the easiest way to know about price and to get reply of your query in least time.
White paper mostly we can ship 2-3 weeks .For it we have setup one separate plant due to continues requirement.
