A wax seal grabs attention and sticks in your mind. Once people see it, they want to touch it to see if it’s real, and with our wax they smell it too. The more senses you engage, the stronger the memory of your seal. Whether you are sending out invitations to an event like a wedding or advertising your business by mail, the seal will be the first thing they notice – it’s right in their face just before they open the flap to set the tone for everything that follows.
Most people have never seen an actual wax seal outside of a movie or TV show, and usually in the hands of a king (or the Hand of the King), so it always carries the message of class and importance. Plus nobody wants to risk finding out that their shredder can’t handle the wax – this one gets opened.
It also makes a great gift for “the person who has everything” – we have seals for lawyers, scientists, engineers, writers, doctors, and mathematicians. Let us know if you want a symbol for a profession we don’t already have – we’re always looking for new designs!
Making your design into a signet ring lets you wear your seal as jewelry – when people see that ring, they know you’re the one who sent the note. Use of signet rings to protect and authenticate documents has a history going back at least to King Tut and remained popular up until the beginning of the 20th century. We are bringing back the tradition using the modern technology of metal 3D printing. Most of these seals are made from stainless steel powder infused with bronze to hold the particles together in a process that leaves almost zero waste material. We can also have the stainless steel plated in gold or bronze, or the entire item can be made from sterling silver made with a lost wax casting process for an additional charge. A range of stock symbols are available, or you can order a custom seal with a personal or business logo. Thanks to the flexibility of the manufacturing process, it’s easy to create cuff links featuring any symbol you see on any of our other products, or your own design – kindly email us for that.
If you’ve ever said (or heard somebody say), “A wax seal looks cool, but how do I do that?”, this is your answer. Learn what tools and products you will need, how to use them, and where to get them.
