Paper & paper products
Bloomin is the original manufacturer of hand-made, recycled seeded paper. First sold as greeting cards in specialty retail markets, Bloomin paper has grown into a extensive line of promotional products, retail stationary gifts, direct marketing solutions, and wedding invitations. Based in Boulder, Colorado, an eco-minded community, Bloomin embraced this attitude from the start. They continue to add alternative energy and eco-technologies as they grow, and they have always manufactured the most Earth-friendly printed marketing medium available. Their seed paper is crafted from 100% post-industrial, recycled paper and dyed with all-natural, vegetable-based pigments. Their products are printed with water-based inks and, when included, use corn-based packaging. Their production facility is now powered by a 30kW solar power system—enough for all of our energy needs and then some.
