    I’m working with a client on a new identity and we would love to find a great vendor to produce a stamp that he can use for wax seals. I’m not sure even how to start on this one and I thought someone might have some experience with it?

    Any tips or resources would be helpful.

     

    Thanks!

    I know the metal stamps hold the image better, but you can actually use a regular rubber stamp for wax seals as well.  Just leave it on the wax longer and gently try to take it off… if it’s not ready to come off, leave it till it does come off easily.  It could be a more affordable option than making a metal stamp.  I’ve made a few custom rubber stamps online for around $30. 

     

    I know Paper Source sells the wax, although I’m sure you could find a better vendor (more colors, cheaper) online.

     

    Hope any of this helps!

    Colleen,

    Thanks so much– this is a great idea. It’s at least worth a try for my client.

    I think we’ll give it a shot!

    You will need to make sure your client understands that he cannot mail the wax seal.  USPS will not  accept exterior wax seals.  However, they will accept the colored hot glue that looks similar to wax.

    Thanks, Meg. I think we will use it on a piece inside the envelope. I wondered how USPS would (or wouldn’t) handle that.

    You may have already figured this out, but USPS just adds $0.20 to the postage since it’s non-machinable with the wax seal.  And the real wax seals will break, so I always use the faux wax with the peel and seal option.  I’ve used the faux seals on the exterior as well.
