People are turning back to nature and taking a closer look at the environment and our impact upon the planet. Increasingly we are seeing our customer base wanting more sustainable options when choosing the materials for their projects.
From corporate stationery right through to wedding stationery we are able to support and offer a selection of solutions here at Dynamic. We have made sure we offer a full range of Eco friendly, fully sustainable printing and paper options and not forgetting paper tape for packaging and dispatch!
Within the range we have paper that is made from 100% recycled paper, and of course recycling paper helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions that can contribute to climate change.
Did you know it takes 70% less energy and water to produce recycled paper than to create new paper from trees.
We have paper made out of cotton & flower seeds which once planted will grow into wild flowers to help support our wildlife. Seeded paper is becoming one of our most popular products as it has such a great feature of being ready to upcycle after its initial usage
We have products made from paper that has been made up from 100% Post Consumer Waste, Grass, Hemp and even recycled Coffee Cups!
Of course, it is worth noting that paper in general is biodegradable as it is made from plant based material and its fibres can be recycled numerous times before the paper fibres become too short to be used for paper production.
Tree free is the ultimate eco-friendly paper material to be used, however the cost currently is extremely high. Hopefully this is something the manufacturers are working on so that “paper” made from bamboo, grass, flowers and even elephant dung become increasingly viable options.
We have a wide range of recycled papers that we use for many of our customers leaflets and corporate printing requirements.
Extremely versatile in nature with a lovely natural feel and even smell, our range of weights for Kraft card can work well for a multitude of projects, including packaging and invitations.
We can help you publish your book project entirely from recycled papers to ensure it is manufactured sustainably.
Seeded paper is a new creative way to have your wedding, corporate invitations or other items printed. Once used they can then be upcycled by planting and watching it grow afterwards.
We can print or die cut our Seeded Paper so the possibilities are endless. We also offer a range of die cut shapes, ideal for card making or gift tags, for example Leaves, Spades, Butterflies and Love Hearts.
We can also die cut bespoke designs you may have in mind.

Seeded paper is literally paper with seeds embedded into it. Using a combination of recycled paper, cotton fibres and wild flower seeds (especially chosen to attract bees) the paper is hand made using a twin wire machine. Due to the to the fact that it is hand made, the paper will vary from sheet to sheet.
When the paper is soaked and then placed in soil, within 7–10 days the paper will germinate and sprouting seedlings will appear. Eventually the paper decomposes and leaves the seedlings to grow into mature plants.
Ideally printing coverage should be no more than 30-40% and very small font sizes can be hard to read on this paper so we suggest at least font size 10 or higher. It is an uncoated and absorbent paper which means colours can appear less vibrant than on other substrates, so natural tones and shades work extremely well.
Once it has been used for its initial purpose the paper can be sown indoors or outdoors.
As with all seeds, whether from a packet or embedded in paper, it is important to follow the planting instructions to achieve the best germination rate.
1. Soak the seeded paper in water overnight to allow the seeds to swell and aid germination.
2. Cover with a thin layer of quality potting compost and spray to keep moist every day until the seedlings are established, ensuring the soil does not dry out.
3. Germination time is approximately 7 to 10 days and if planting outdoors best time to sow is from late spring to avoid any frosts and ideal conditions are in a greenhouse.
4. Can be planted indoors or outdoors, remembering to keep moist at all times.
Our seeded paper contains a mix of the following wild flowers:
