sales support to help you grow
Bloomin sells all of its promotional products through its network of Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI) and other promotional product distributors. If you are a distributor, and would like additional tools to make the most of our products, please contact us at flowers@bloomin.com to start growing your business. If you are not an advertising specialty distributor, please fill out the form below and one of our valued promotional products distributors will contact you right away to assist with your seed paper questions, quote requests, or orders.

proofing
A purchase order and your artwork are required to begin the proofing process (see Art Guidelines). Once these are received, we will turn around virtual proofs via e-mail to the provided addresses within 24 hours.

pre-production proofs
Printer proofs, or pre-production proofs, are available if you find it necessary to see how your art reproduces on seed paper. Printer proofs are untrimmed press sheets that indicate dielines. An additional $40 set up-charge will apply.

pre-production samples
If you need a mockup of the final piece, complete with actual die-cutting and full assembly, an additional $90 set-up charge will apply. If a custom die is required, that must be purchased in advance.
 

turnaround
Standard turnaround is 5-7 working days from proof approval to ship date. The delivery date cannot be determined until receipt of your proof approval and deposit. Rush production is available for an additional charge.

shipping
All orders ship UPS Ground unless otherwise instructed. Expedited shipping and other carriers are available. Please be sure to include your in-hands date and preferred method of shipping on your purchase order so we can help you insure the order arrives on time with the most affordable shipping option.

International Shipping
We have sold and shipped our products all over the world and can help you get your seed paper anywhere. We have the expertise to determine additional permits and certificates that may be required, and are happy to provide you with freight quotes and advice to insure your exporting goes smoothly. Additional time, charges, and documentation may apply when shipping internationally. Please contact us for further information.

additional quantities and reorders
We typically include several “overs” at no charge with each order, to account for any nuances in the seed paper. However, we recommend ordering additional quantities on the original order to avoid set-up and shipping charges. We can’t guarantee an exact match for ink or paper colors due to the natural variation in our handmade process and printing method.
