Flowerink is a business built in Montreal that creates greeting cards and other stationery goods that are environmentally friendly. How is that possible? The paper they use is mostly seed paper! The seeds are either wildflowers or herbs. They are always trying to make the best environmental choices. Everything is illustrated and printed in Montreal, Canada.
THEIR MISSION is to offer products that are SIMPLE, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY and that are HEARTWARMING.
A creator and an ecologist since forever, Mélanie Girard-Brisson started Flowerink in 2017 to promote stationary items that are environmentally friendly. She always was a true lover of all stationery items, so she really wanted to create something she could share with the people that had the same passion. That’s the reason she decided to create greeting cards that were plantable and compostable. Further in the process, she decided to create other stationery items (banners, calendars, gift tags ). Herbs are even a new thing you can get by planting a card from Flowerink.
Isn’t that magic when art meets environment? Art is really important for Flowerink and they always try to offer product that resonate with that. Mélanie is an artist that mostly uses water-colour in her designs.
OUR ADDED VALUE: We are really honoured and lucky to have Frédérike Lefebvre, a Montreal illustrator, to work with us. She creates illustrations as well for Flowerink and brings a very different style to their greeting cards selection.
