Our Wax seals are engraved into real brass and feature a real wood handle.

Types of Wax Seals

Typically, we recommend simple designs for wax seals, such as a set of initails, or basic shapes. For some ideas and dimensions please use the links on the left side of the page.

How to Use Your Wax Seal

Without a Glue Gun

You should get 8 - 10 seals per stick with 3/4" seal or 5-6 seals per stick with 1" seal:

You will need a way to heat the wax. We recommend a micro torch lighter, but you can also use a regular lighter, or candle. Remember to be careful not to burn yourself.

There are two methods to apply the wax. In either case hold the stick at an angle and heat the end of the wax.

Method 1: Wait until the wax softends and mush the end onto the paper into a circle. Be sure to remove any air bubbles. Make sure that the puddle of melted wax is larger than the seal.

Method 2: Let the wax melt until it drips onto the paper forming a pool. Again make sure that the puddle of melted wax is larger than the seal.

Once you have sufficient wax applied to the paper, press the seal into the wax. Let the seal sit until the wax cools (usually 10-15 seconds) before removing it.

With a Glue Gun

You should get 10 - 12 seals per stick with 3/4" seal or 7-10 seals per stick with 1" seal:

*Note: we recommend insterting two sticks at a time if the glue gun's chamber is empty or close to empty.

Step 1: Squeeze the wax into a circle and try to make it a little bigger than the impression of your seal.

Step 2: Let the wax cool for couple of seconds and gently apply the seal.

Step 3: Once stamped let the seal sit until the wax hardens (usually 10-15 seconds), then remove.

Letting the wax cool will ensure that the wax keeps its shape. If any wax get stuck to the brass seal, simply heat the wax to melt it away.
