Eco-Friendly Wedding Invitation Paper

Are you looking for a special paper for wedding invitations so you DIY and print them at home? Need an eco-friendly wedding invitation paper but not sure what option is best? Then you’re in the right place!

With so many paper options out there online, it’s easy to get lost. As you choose a paper type, you’ll want to learn about what makes it eco-friendly, how it’s made, and if it will meet your DIY needs.

Many wedding invitation papers are made with virgin paper or non-recyclable glossy finishes, while seed paper and handmade paper are made with material that benefits the environment.

Let’s take a look at some paper for wedding invitations so you can decide which one is right for you:

1. Plantable Seed Paper

Seed paper is the ultimate eco-friendly wedding invitation paper option since it can be planted in soil. The paper composts away and actually gives back to the earth by growing plants. It’s 100% made with recycled paper waste to save trees.

This blank wedding invitation paper is:

  • Made with recycled paper waste
  • Embedded with non-GMO, non-invasive seeds
  • Grows into wildflowers when planted in soil
  • Uncoated with a slightly bumpy texture (you can feel the seeds!)
  • Biodegradable and compostable
  • Thick sturdy sheets
  • Printable
  • Available with trimmed edge

Printing on seed paper at home is easy to do. All you need is an inkjet printer with a straight paper path. Follow these printing guidelines for step-by-step recommendations. These printable invitation kits come with enough seed paper for 30 invitations, plus access to 6 stunning free printable wedding invitation templates in many colors. If you’d rather have help printing, take a look at our design-your-own options.

2. Handmade Paper (No Seeds)

This beautiful blank wedding invitation paper feels so luxurious and special. It’s handcrafted from recycled content like Botanical PaperWorks signature seed paper, just without the seeds added! Up close you’ll see tiny flecks of printed paper from the paper waste which adds charm.

  • Made with recycled paper waste
  • Uncoated with a smooth and soft texture
  • Biodegradable and compostable
  • Thick sturdy sheets
  • Printable
  • Available with trimmed or deckle edges

Printing on handmade paper is just as easy as seed paper and you can follow the same printing guidelines. Just note that deckle edge handmade paper would need to be letterpressed or screen printed since it has uneven edges.
