FAQ

Which payments do you accept?

We accept payments via PayPal and Estonian bank link payments via Maksekeskus.

My country does not permit the import of seeds or product with seeds, can I order your seed paper anyway?

Unfortunately, no. We will not ship your order if we are aware of any prohibition. We however recommend you to check with your local authority when in doubt (your national postal service should provide reliable information), the import rules can be defined rather vaugely. Let us know their stance on the issue, and if they permit, we will happily ship your order. If not, you can always choose from our range of letterpress products which do not contain any seeds.

How do I grow the seed paper cards?

It is very simple, check our step by step guide here. The main rule is to not let them dry out during germination, as that will kill the seeds and they will not grow again.

My seed paper card did not grow, how is that possible?

It can happen – most likely because it dried out accidentally during germination. Don’t worry, just send us a photo of your (ungrown) seed paper card and we will send you a new seed paper card for free!

Can I join your calligraphy school whenever during the school year?
