Wax seals have been used for centuries to convey status, power, individuality through ones correspondence and to authenticate identity. Wax seals were an indisputable mark of the affirmation of one's intentions, words and wishes. They are as unique as the person, couple or family they represent.
Much less common today they now convey elegance, nostalgia and a bespoke aesthetic. Sealing wax comes in every color imaginable and the wax seal handle can be custom engraved with any design. From monograms to simple initials to elegant crests to rustic or contemporary takes on everything from a sweet honeybee to a antique key.
Wax seals impart an old world beauty, recalling quiet moments with quill and pen. Wax seals have been around since medieval times and with modern technology you can easily create a personal seal. If you are short on time and want to keep it simple with pre-made self-adhesive seals or experience the smells, texture and warmth of the traditional melted wax method or take the middle ground and let a glue gun do the heating for you.
