I've received my brass Seal! Yeeeears ago I ordered from this same company. Back then I purchased their 'peel-and-stick' seals. They are not wax but a sort or resin. More on that in a later post. The company is www.waxseals.com.
My order included, the Brass Seal, Wood handle (permanent), Sample Flexible wax (all 3 sticks are the same, you get to choose what color when you order. This free sample offer may not always be available), One sample of my design on their 'peel-and-stick' seals, Instructions, and their business card. All in a Black velvet pouch.
"This company gives many
options on just about everything."
I chose to order a permanent handle. They offer removable....
...wood handles also. While removable may give you more storing options, I didn't like the idea of the actual hardware (the threads and socket) to become loose over time. This kind of hardware can become so with use of screwing the seal on and off. The seal then sits wobbly on handle. This was just my personal choice in ordering my first stamp from them (as I have a store bought one that is wobbly due to the removable handle).
This handle fits comfortable in my hand. The solid brass gives it good weight for the impression into the wax. You don't have to use much pressure.
The was $65. Shipping FedEx ground was $19. (7-10 business days after production). I supplied them with a Vector art file of my design. But they accept other art formats as well, like PDF, JPG, GIFF, TIFF, EPS, and PNG.
I am reasonably happy with it. The product itself is great. The Seal results however, I wish were a little more visible when making a seal. I even made the strokes in the art thicker because I know it was a detailed logo. I will likely order another stamp at some point with different art and will let you in on the results.
In the meantime, keep scribbling!
Hello, I’m Nina, the maven behind the
IQS blog. I’m all about creativity (ya think?).
I work in several disciplines. So it's no surprise that the Art of Letter Writing would come knocking on my door. Smitten!
However, I did not want to simply add MailArt as a discipline to my website. Thus it became the IQS Blog within my site. And that is why there are TWO navigation menus. *Here’s a Tip: stick with the BLOG Menu in this Column. The main site menu will lead you astray into dark places where you will be screaming for help and no one will hear you.
