FAQ

Seek & Bloom Products


Q: WHERE ARE THE FLOWERS FROM IN YOUR DESIGNS?
A: The majority of flowers in original Seek & Bloom designs are locally grown from local farmers or wildflowers foraged by Ashley. Some import flowers are pressed in the winter months but we strive to keep most of our flowers locally sourced.

Q: ARE YOUR PRINTS AND CARDS REAL FLOWERS?
A: Each flower and piece is completely unique it would be impossible to reproduce our designs with real flowers. Our cards, prints, and gifts are made from high-quality photographs of the real designs and reproduced to look just like the real thing!

Q: Do you offer custom flower designs?
A: Yes, but only certain times a year as wedding bouquets make up a lot of my custom orders. You can shop our Original Artwork in the shop or contact us to see if what you are looking for is the right fit.

Q: WILL THE COLOURS FADE?
A: Each flower is pressed to hold the colour as much as possible but naturally, the colours will fade over time. We recommend keeping your original pieces out of direct sunlight and humidity preserve the quality of your artwork.

Q: DO FLOWERS HAVE TO BE FRESH TO PRESS?
A: Yes! Fresh flowers press best and we always try and press wedding pieces soon as they arrive to ensure the best quality and colours for your final artwork.

Q: MY BOUQUET IS ALREADY DRY, CAN YOU PRESS IT?
A: Typically no, as the flowers will crumble if put under any kind of pressure. If you have saved or pressed flowers and would like to have us frame them send a few photos and we will be able to tell if they are possible to frame. If you have smaller dried flowers in your wedding bouquet we can usually still use them!

Q: DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT?
A: Yes! a $100 deposit is required to hold your wedding date as space is suite limited. Please contact us soon as possible for availability.

Q: WHAT IF MY FLOWERS DON'T TURN OUT?
A: Although we’ve never had an issue, there is always a possibility when dealing with perishable products that the flowers won’t press well. If your artwork ends up being smaller than expected or doesn’t turn out you will not be charged the final fee, your deposit however will not be refunded.

Q: HOW LONG DO THE FLOWERS TAKE TO DRY?
A: While each flower dries differently in it’s own time, most bouquets take 2-4 weeks to completely dry and press. It will take an additional few weeks to complete your artwork during peak season.

Q: I'M NOT LOCAL TO YOU, CAN YOU PRESS MY BOUQUET?
A: Unfortunately, your bouquet is very time-sensitive. For the best results, we need it hand delivered to us within 3 days of your wedding.

Q: HOW DO I KEEP MY FLOWERS FRESH FOR YOU?
A: We recommend when possible, to keep your bouquet in a cool space (out of direct summer heat after you are done with them) and in a vase of water when you are not using it (at reception and until drop off). This will help ensure it arrives in the best shape possible for pressing.

Q: CAN YOU RECOMMEND FLOWERS OR A FLORIST?
A: Yes!  We have a community of amazing local florists and growers we love to work with! Just ask! If you tell your florist you plan to have us press your bouquet they may be able to suggest certain flowers as well. We also have a list of favourite flowers for pressing to send you after you book.
