New designs by popular demand

After requests by customers, several new products are now available: New products of note include:

Om (top, second from right), commonly associated with certain groups of Hindus or Buddhists.

Awen (top right), Welsh symbol of poetic inspiration, often used to represent modern Druids

Gear (bottom, third from right) should appeal to a Steampunk audience or would make a great gift for someone mechanically inclined.

Skull – This was our most requested idea for a new stock image and is now available for purchase.


The Dragon and LD with crossed swords (bottom right) are examples of custom wax seal designs that are possible, including personalized monograms with or without a background symbol.

Of course all other symbols seen here are still available on the Shapeways Store, and don’t forget about sealing wax.  Limited quantities of some seals are in stock for immediate shipment and a slight discount – avoid the Shapeways 14 business day building time!  Inquire through the Contact page for more information.

Now Available: Sealing Wax

EDIT: See the Wax Page for pricing information.

New Product: “Scales of Justice” Seal

Now available for all you lawyers and other legal people, a seal to show off your profession:


I’m particularly proud of my artistry on this one.  It’s not obvious from a head-on view, but there is some real depth variation that will be much more obvious when you see the seal in person.  The bowls of the scale literally pop out at you:



And as usual, the top of the seal has the same symbol as the impression to make getting the right orientation simple.
