talking about? Fortunately, Janet's not ill. She's simply ecstatic. In fact, Janet
hasn't been this rosy since she was up to her ears in Easter lilies last April.
Janet's joyful discovery is Paper Flowers, the new flowering seed paper
that blossoms with beauty.

more and more spring and summer festivals seem to be popping up all over the place.
Many of these events usually have lots of vendor booths that sell everything from
artwork to apparel. If you look carefully, you'll notice many of these beautiful,
one-of-a-kind products are handmade.
stationery products from notecards to journals have been springing up more and
more too. Like many other handcrafted merchandise, such paper goods generally
offer an unforgettable look and feel that no machine can duplicate. Even in this
era of laser compatibility, why do handmade paper products continue to captivate
Lichtenstein, founder of Resurgence
Handmade Papers, the answer is simple: "There's a certain elegance and
inherent goodness in some things from our collective past. Handmade paper is one
of those things."
Handmade Paper has been producing a number of elegant, good looking paper products
since 1994. Using a diverse assortment of natural fibers ranging from recycled
denim to Japanese fibers like Kozo, the Billings, Montana mill makes some of the
most attractive paper you'll ever see. Resurgence's three primary product groups
are text and cover papers, stationery, and hand-bound blank books. Sheet sizes
as small as 4 x 6 to as large as 18 x 24 are available in a number of text, cover,
and writing weights.
month's edition of PaperView was laser printed on Resurgence Handmade Paper's
Paper Flowers, a wonderful new paper containing actual flower seeds (in
this case, marigold seeds.) Paper Flowers looks best silk screened, but
can be laser printed if need be. Although similar papers have been around for
several years, Resurgence is the first company to offer completely custom handmade
seed paper. You choose what floral inclusions you want like leaves or petals.
Then pick your favorite flower seeds, paper weight and color. Once you or your
customer has used the paper, simply plant the paper in the ground like you would
seeds, let Mother Nature take her course, and watch for flowers!
