Duluth Papermaking

My fiance and I are looking to be married in August and are currently searching for recycled (hopefully seeded) paper for our invites. I have hunted around on the net, and got a few numbers, but I felt it would be good if we went with someone local. Does anyone around the area make paper or know someone who does? We have less than two weeks to come up with something before we’d like to have them printed, so the sooner the better. I actually tried making some paper last night, it worked out well, but I just don’t have enough time to get them all done. Let me know if you or anyone you know would be interested!

Did you try Green Mercantile downtown? I think Knife River DAC makes paper like you describe from time to time as well.

Did you try etsy.com? If no one has it for sale, you could also use their "Alchemy" program to commission it from a paper maker.

Thanks Edgeways - you always have our back!
Yes, the Knife River DAC makes homemade paper. Two sizes - 5x7" and 8x11" - looks beautiful when you lay one on the other. 
We could discuss seeded paper.
Our personal favority is birch bark paper!
Email me, stop out or call 834-5767.

I was going to suggest the Knife River DAC too.  They make beautiful paper and I've actually been able to use it in my printer to make very fetching certificates and notes.

Doooo eeeeet!

Why don't you just call everyone and not send out something that will end up in a landfill? Green or not, it's still mass and volume.

Hence the seed paper...  After they read the invite and use it at their convenience, they can plant it for some flowery fun.  Thanks for all the good ideas, we will be sure to take them into consideration-
