Who is Bloomin?
To be the worldwide authority on all things seed paper; to create the most environmentally friendly products and be a socially responsible producer of promotional goods. To reshape the promotional industry, away from imported and disposable goods, towards sustainable and made in the USA products.
To be instrumental in bridging the gap between landfill products to sustainable alternatives. To educate distributors and guide them to sell responsible promotional products and transform the promotional industry.
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.
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.
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.
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.

bloomin responsible and safe
Since our products are made by hand in Boulder, CO we do employ active monitoring of our own factory and vertically integrated manufacturing processes. We are an early adopter of the PPAI safety awareness program and Nafta friendly.We have done several in pack promotions for the likes of General Mills, Coca Cola, and Molson Coors. Our products have been thoroughly audited and tested for CPSIA and we have routinely passed their standards and been awarded numerous high volume, consumer food related projects. In 2013 we underwent and received the Intertek stamp of approval for product safety. Bloomin is in the final steps of becoming “B-Certified” and continues to operate at the forefront of environmental, social, and consumer product safety responsibility.
Our paper really grows! Independent lab testing confirms that Bloomin seed paper has the highest germination rate in the trade. Our unique handmade process and attention to detail produces seed paper that germinates quickly and thrives in all regions year after year. We even developed our own Earth-friendly printing process that protects the seeds without sacrificing print fidelity.
Bloomin has always operated at the forefront of environmental consciousness. Today, people use our products to communicate their own green initiatives. The most Earth-friendly tangible marketing medium available, our seed paper is made from 100% recycled paper and dyed with all-natural and vegetable-based pigments. Our products are printed with water- or soy-based inks and, when included, use primarily corn-based packaging. Our production facilities are sustainable, too. We recently installed a 30kW solar power system, so we are now powered by the same sun that makes our products grow!
