Before July 2023, we shared our seed cards, pronoun pins, art prints, and other accessories under two different names: The Bower Studio and Gamut Pins.

In July 2023, we officially changed our name to Small Victories, with all our items in one place here on smallvictories.com. We are still the very same studio, but it didn’t make sense anymore to separate our work in two different places.

You may still see some products in retail stores that have our old Bower Studio and Gamut Pins branding, but they have the same high quality standards and carefully chosen materials that we use now. If you try them and like them so much you want to reorder, you found the right place!

No, we are not able to offer customized cards at this time.

No. We work with another company who produces the paper for us. We do not offer any of our supplies or materials for sale.

We offer two types of enamel pronoun badges, designed here in our studio. Which you pick depends on what look you prefer and what pronouns you use:

Classic Enamel Pronoun Pins are round pins, available with traditional rubber and post backs or magnetic backs. Choose from they/them, she/her, he/him, she/they, he/they, and any/all pronouns.

Mix + Match Pronoun Badges are rectangular badges that let you choose your pronouns, colors, and order—and then swap them out or switch them around any time you like.

The unique magnetic design lets you pick single pronouns like “they” and “it” and combine them in any way you like, in groups of two or three pronouns. This product has the most colors and pronoun options, and we plan to add even more pronouns in the future.

Our goal is to make beautiful, durable pronoun wear that looks great in any situation and is accessible for everyone. We add new pronouns based on feedback from messages, in person events, and surveys. If you suggestions or feedback, please contact us.

Our Classic Enamel Pronoun Pins come in two different backing styles: a classic post with a rubber pin back, and a magnetic option.

The classic post with a rubber pin back is the most durable and affordable option ($1 less than magnetic). This is the best style for accessories and clothes that you don't mind sticking a pin through. The rubber pin back prevents the pin from rotating while worn.

Our magnetic option is slimmer and will not damage clothes. It will also lay perfectly flat on your outfit. The magnet is strong and works perfectly for styling on clothes, but is not recommended for use on accessories like backpacks or hats where the material might be too thick to fully engage the magnets.

Note that our Mix + Match pronoun badges are only available with magnetic backs because of their unique design. Visit our Pronoun Badges Page to see all our pronoun wear in one place.

Our Products

Our plantable greeting cards are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper with non-GMO seeds embedded directly into the paper.

Our art prints are printed on sustainably made straw paper, which uses a mixture of recycled content and straw plant fibers (a byproduct of agriculture).

Yes! Our badges are thoughtfully designed to be legible at a distance.

Our Classic line measures at 1" in diameter, which is a smidge bigger than a quarter.

Our Mix + Match line measures 1.5" wide with two pronoun tiles.

The seeds included in our Wildflower Paper are:

Clarkia - Clarkia unguiculata, Bird’s Eye - Gilia tricolor, Black eyed Susan - Rudbeckia hirta, Snapdragon - Linaria maroccana, Catchfly - Silene areria, and Sweet Alyssum - Lobularia maritima.

The seeds included in our Herb Paper are: Parsley - Petroselinum crispum, Basil - Ocimum basilicum, and Chives - Allium schoenoprasum.

All seeds are non-GMO and approved for planting in the US, Canada, the EU, and the UK.

The topic of invasive species is complicated and continually changing, particularly as climate change and human activity continues to shift ecosystems. The company that makes our paper is careful to ensure that the seeds are approved for planting in most regions. However, every state and country has their own definitions and regulations regarding exotic species. Small Victories is not responsible for being aware of all local and regional definitions and regulations.

Although the seed mix contains non-native species, the species included in our plantable cards do not possess invasive growing habits and pose little threat of uncontrolled spreading (in most regions). The seeds are approved by both the United States Department of Agriculture and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency as suitable for planting in the US, Canada, and other regions.

Many garden plants, such as those in our seed cards, are non-natives (including commonly planted vegetables, herbs, and annual flowers like marigolds, apples, roses, or petunias), but they are generally considered safe to plant with little risk to the native environment. You can read more about invasice and non-native plants here.

Furthermore, we sell worldwide and it is simply not possible to have plant species native to all regions, even within a single country. If you are concerned about a particular species in one of our cards, we welcome you to contact us.

Due to USDA and import regulations, we are not currently able to alter the seeds included in the papers we use for our cards.

Because of the textured surface of the paper, pencils are often too light to show up clearly. Most pens and felt tip markers are fine for writing and safe for the seeds.

If you're looking for the very best pens and markers to write on our seed paper, you can buy our favorites right here on our website! After much testing, we found that Tombow Mono Graph Lite Ballpoint Pens and Tombow Dual Brush Art Markers made the smoothest, best-looking marks and were a real pleasure to write with.

We also picked out several colors for the brush pens that compliment our original illustrations and look especially good on our seed paper, whether white or cream-colored.

Most writing utensils are fine to use on seed paper and will not hurt the seeds; the marks will usually wash away when you dampen the paper for planting (see our planting guide for more tips). Look out for paint markers or permanent markers—some have alcohols, oils, or xylene, which could potentially be an issue.

Looking for the very best pens and markers to use on seed paper? We tested many pens and markers in our studio "lab" and you can find the winners right here. They are not just safe for the seeds; they also write clearly and compliment our illustrations.

Yes. All of our prints are printed with archival chroma-life inks, guaranteed to last at least 100 years. Of course, it is always advised that prints be displayed in a way that protects them from moisture and direct sunlight.

Yes! The company who makes our paper has tested and approved all the seeds contained in the paper for planting in Canada, the US, EU, UK, and many other countries worldwide.

Our cards cannot be shipped to New Zealand or Australia due to import regulations.

To plant the paper, cover it with 1/8" of soil in full to partial sun and keep moist until the seeds establish. For improved germination time, soak that paper for a few minutes before planting. Sprouts should appear in 4 - 6 days, depending on conditions.

Planting instructions are printed on the back of every card and note card. You can also find instructions here.

Our cards have a shelf life of two years. However, we recommend planting within one year if it was purchased from one of our retailers.

Extend seed viability by storing your card in the fridge! Place the card in a zip seal plastic bag along with a silica gel packet (we reuse them from dry food packages) and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to plant.

Our card sleeves are made from glassine, a type of waxed paper. The paper is made with FSC certified materials and is printed with soy inks. Glassine can be composted, recycled, reused, or burned.

All of our prints are sealed in protective sleeves made from polylactide acid (PLA). PLA is created from the lactic acid in plants and is certified compostable in municipal facilities only (not approved for backyard composting).

Cards: Yes! Glassine is 100% compostable and can be mixed into your backyard bin or pile. You can also reuse the sleeves to store seeds from your garden.

Prints: No, unfortunately. PLA requires high heat in order to break down completely. Otherwise, it will simply break apart into smaller pieces and won't be fully composted. PLA can be sent to composting facilities which are equipped to process compost at the necessary high temperatures. If you do not have such a facility in your region, some recycling programs will accept PLA. Please check with your local waste management for disposal options.

We welcome all of our retailers to review our retailer map to see which other stores may be carrying our cards in your region.
