During the summer season, more people are away from home on vacations or spending weekends at cabins. Combined with the lack of big holidays during these relaxing months, some businesses might see a bit of a lull in sales. This means fresh promotions and events that remind consumers of your brand in a creative way are even more important.
If you’re looking to send a message with a fun summer vibe, seed paper promotional products from Botanical PaperWorks are perfect for the season of growth! Created with post-consumer materials, these earth-friendly products are infused with seeds that grow when planted in a pot or garden.
1) It's Planting Season:
If you opt for herb or veggie seed paper for your promotional products, you'll give clients, colleagues and customers the opportunity to enjoy one of the best parts about the summer - gardening! With the long days and the warm sunshine, this season is the most optimal time to grow your own pesticide-free produce. Whether you choose tomato, lettuce, carrot, herb, dill or basil seed paper, recipients will get to experience the promotional product in a variety of ways. Not only do they get to plant it and watch it grow, but they also get to enjoy the harvest in fresh and delicious summer recipes.

2) They Don't Leave Waste Behind
Summer is a great time to organize events, fundraisers, festivals and other outdoor activities. However, these events tend to create a lot of waste. Using plantable products instead of traditional paper is a great way to make these special occasions eco-friendly while creating a great amount of brand recognition for your business. With a variety of products to choose from including wristbands, coasters, tent cards and invitations, you'll find just the right fit for your green event.
3) They Help Important Species
A true symbol of summer, butterflies, bees and other insects play a vital role in our precious ecosystems. As pollinator plants, growing wildflowers from seed paper promotional products is a great way to do some good and help make a difference. With our new native species paper options, you can select wildflowers specific to your region so that when your promotion is planted, it will help by contributing to natural habitats for declining populations of butterflies and honeybees.
