Who Is Bloomin?

Our Paper

Artisans have been embedding seeds in paper for texture for centuries. We have worked for years at perfecting the process to insure the seeds will actually grow. At Bloomin, we add flower, herb, and vegetable seeds to the mix when we make our paper—once planted and cared for, it will grow into a garden!
Since 1995, we have integrated some of the world’s best practices in papermaking with our own homegrown innovations, and Bloomin has become recognized as the world’s foremost authority on this specialized commodity.
Because we have built our reputation on making seed paper that actually grows, traditional papermaking methods can not be used. By carefully controlling the pressure on the press, and all aspects of the drying process (temperature, time, humidity, and capacity), we are able to insure no seeds are made unviable. When your Bloomin paper is planted, watered, and cared for, it will indeed grow.

Our Products

There is a sincere connection that is formed between the sender and receiver of any Bloomin seed paper product. The act of gardening—planting the seed paper, nurturing it, and enjoying its beautiful yield year after year—keeps your message alive and becomes its own gift. Making meaningful connections is invaluable and Bloomin seed paper makes it easy.

Originally sold as greeting cards in specialty retail markets, Bloomin has grown into a extensive card and gift retail line, direct marketing solutions, a complete line of wedding and social stationery, and a successful promotional products division.
With over 1,000 original promotions and a history of innovation, Bloomin can offer a seed paper solution for any project. Seed paper promotions are great for events, holidays, direct mail, packaging, or gifts.
We are proud to sell our seed paper sheets and shapes in bulk to other greeting card manufacturers and party suppliers. Our paper is also available in small quantities for adding to packaging, products, and crafts. You’ll find our papers in many sizes, shapes, colors, and weights, in stock and ready to ship.

Our Planet

Today, business is done differently—a larger premium is placed on sustainability. Consumers expect companies to give back to their communities through resource conservation and impact reduction.

Based in Boulder, Colorado, an eco-minded community, Bloomin embraced this attitude from the start. We continue to add alternative energy and eco-technologies as we grow, and we have always manufactured the most Earth-friendly printed marketing medium available. Our seed paper is crafted from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper and dyed with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments. Our products are printed with water-based inks and, when included, use corn-based packaging. Our production facility is now powered by a 30kW solar power system—enough for all of our energy needs and then some.

Our People

As proud as we are of our history and best practices, it is our people that set us apart. Our valued employees have high standards for quality and customer service, and display a personal responsibility in getting your order done right and on time. Over the years, Bloomin has employed differently-abled members of our community. We are proud of our association with Community Link, a local organization that actively supports the integration of these individuals into a progressive work environment.

We are proud of our relationship with these great people and the diverse community in Boulder, Colorado.
