In The Details | Custom Wax Seals

We love objects and paper goods that embody a sense of nostalgia and when the contemporary brushes up against the past in everyday life.

In the realm of stationery we love the old world beauty of a wax seal. Wax seals have been around since medieval times and with modern technology you can easily create a personal seal. Seals can be self-adhesive or use the traditional melted wax or you can even put colored wax through a glue gun.

Below are some custom projects for clients who were equally enthusiastic about the beauty a wax seal adds.

Custom invitations with wax seal

A custom gold wax seal was the final touch for this 50th Birthday Celebration Invitation. We created a custom watercolor motif envelope liner, dip dye envelopes and finished it with the custom wax seal. 
Wax seals can also be used to finish off gifts in a way the receiver will absolutely love!
