Save the Date Wedding Seed Favor

** Plant them, they grow! **

Each plantable lock and key is embedded with a carefully selected mix of annual and perennial flower seeds. Used as place cards, they make a charming wedding addition that keeps on giving. Daisies, poppies, snapdragons, marigolds, zinnia, cosmos and other pretty garden flowers await guests who plant the seed paper place card. They are also affordable and earth-friendly. Each is made from recycled junk mail and used office paper that will naturally decompose as the plants grow. Just place under a thin layer of soil and keep wet to grow.

........... PLANT THRU 2015 ............
Seeds are fresh and specially selected for planting in 2015. Unlike other mass produced seed papers, our handmade artisan seed paper contains a special mix of 'premium' garden flower seeds. Our unique flower seed blend is a mix of zinnia, cosmos, snapdragons, columbine, poppies, daisies, cornflowers, calendula, dianthus/Sweet Williams, marigolds, and other desirable garden flower seeds. Cheaper seed paper contains lower quality 'wildflower' type seeds, such as sweet alyssum, that are essentially weeds. Our premium mix contains annuals, for first year color, and also perennials for blooms in the years to follow. Planting instructions are included. You'll need to let me know if you need a separate set of planting instructions for each piece. I can send you a pdf of several to a sheet so you can print out as many as you need. Our plantable paper really does grow - that's a sprout growing right out of the plantable paper in the photo at the right!

............. TAGS ..............
Printed save the date or bride & groom cards (with couple's names and wedding date) or other types of cards with different text are available. Cards are also available in a larger size. You can choose blank tags (with decorative border) to hand write in guest names so you can use them as seating cards. Printed seating cards with individual guests names/table numbers pre-printed on them are also available. Cards all come printed with planting instructions on the backs of the tags. We can put together a custom PDF for you to print cards on your own to go with the locks and keys if you wish to print them on your own. Costs for all of these options are available by request.

............. COLORS ..............
Yes, there are other color choices for the locks and the keys:

White, cream, pale yellow, sunshine yellow, gold, butterscotch, baby blue, medium/cornflower blue, faded navy, pale pink, baby pink, rose, hot pink, red, merlot/burgundy, peach, coral, orange, burnt orange, mint green, kiwi, kelly/grass green, pea green, dark green/forest, sage, olive, seafoam green, aqua, turquoise, teal, lilac, purple beige, tan, brown, light gray, medium gray, and black. Other colors are available by request, too.

Please type in your desired color/s in the "message to seller" box that appears during checkout.

........... ENVELOPES .............
Envelopes for the save the date lock and key announcements can be added to your order using the drop down menu. They are heavyweight cream/ivory. We also have clear, resealable bags. If you would like them instead, just let us know at checkout.

............. SHIPPING ................
All paper is made-to-order to preserve freshness. The current wait time after most orders are placed is about 1-2 weeks before an order ships. If you need your order sooner than this, please contact me first to see about availability of a rush order. There is a $28 rush order charge that is sometimes necessary for faster delivery, depending on the time frame and where they are shipping to.

We have a vacation planned for October, so if your event is in October or early November, please plan to order by early September to ensure you receive your order in time.

If you are ordering in advance, I time the production and shipment of orders to arrive about 2-3 weeks before the event they are needed for to ensure they arrive with plenty of time to get ready as you wish, and are also maximum freshness. If you'd like to receive your order at a particular time, please let me know when you would like to receive it so I can schedule its production and shipment accordingly.

Yes, we do ship Internationally! We do not ship to New Zealand due to customs restrictions on seeds. Please allow for additional time for the arrival of international shipments.
